Grace for a Grieving Heart
In 2001 my husband, Rick, died unexpectedly, leaving me with three children. The oldest was 18 and the youngest, 8. I began journaling through my grief—raw, in‑the‑moment entries that stretched over the next several years. These entries were only for me. But in time I began to see how they could help others on the journey of grief, and the friends who came alongside them. I gathered them into a book, Grace for a Grieving Heart, a unique combination of memoir and devotional.
I am currently seeking a publisher for Grace for a Grieving Heart.
Long after I put up this website and began posting on the blog, I discovered a song by Matt Redman, Your Grace Finds Me. It speaks about how God’s grace finds us wherever we are:
It’s there on a wedding day
There in the weeping by the graveside
There in the very breath we breathe
Your great grace…
There in the darkest night of the soul
There in the sweetest songs of victory
Your grace finds me
Yes your grace finds me
More than any other song, Your Grace Finds Me sums up what I want to say to you. This song explains Grace for a Grieving Heart.
