This was such a good book. After losing my father, I came upon this book and decided to read it, since a grieving Christian is what I am. Zig Ziglar put into words how I felt about my grief. One of the best things he said in the book was, "It is my complete conviction that people who suppress their feelings are not working through their grief. They are denying their grief, and delaying the healing process. Sometimes, an inevitable result of unexpressed grief is that the grief grows more profound and seems to hurt even more. After each outburst of grief and tears, I have a feeling of relief and a sense that I am moving closer to the solution for my griefnot the solution of eliminating the grief entirely, but the solution of making the grief more bearable, and of shifting my focus to all of the marvelous things I remember about my loved one. I must say, on behalf of tears, that I have always felt better for having wept." That is exactly what I needed to hear. I highly recommend this book.

On May 13, 1995 God called Zig Zilglar's oldest daughter, Susan, home after a prolonged illness. Journeying through his own grief, Ziglar realized many things about himself, his family, his priorities, and God. In this comforting book, he uses his experience to encourage you to deal with the reality of loss and learn to take up the threads of life again as you find consolation and inspiration in the Giver of all Peace.
