Can Life and Hope follow the Death of Someone You Love?In telling my story, I aspire to encourage you with the truths I have learned through my pain. In sharing the answers that have brought me comfort, I desire that you too will find a sense of peace and hope as you face the challenging questions that come with death, loss and grief. Is it possible to go on living when someone you love dies? Will there ever again be "normal" days? Is it possible to feel joy and a sense of wholeness again after a great loss? How can something that "feels" so bad ever be considered a blessing? Can a situation that feels like it will destroy you really facilitate growth?Finding Joy Again is a remarkable book. Every page contains something to which I could personally relate, and I believe this will be true for anyone who has suffered great loss. Melanie's story of anguish and grief upon losing her son, Montana, is a painful one. However, it is ultimately a story of the comfort and hope that can be ours once again through Jesus Christ. Finding Joy Again stays away from pat answers and instead offers the honest emotions, experiences and reflections of one who has suffered greatly. Knowing Melanie personally, I can attest to this book's truth and to the joy she truly has found again. It is a wonderful guide and a beacon of hope for anyone wandering through the wilderness of grief.Pastor Bill WaylandMelanie McKinley and her husband Merle live on Camano Island, WA.
