Having lived through the traumatic deaths of her older brother and sister, author Tif McDevitt suffered another traumatic loss when her firstborn son, eighteen-year-old Grant, was killed in November of 2016. In Grieving Grant, she shares her grief in the first year following his death and how she was sustained by the power of her redeemer, Jesus Christ.
In this memoir, McDevitt chronicles the first year of shock, sorrow, and grief and the comfort she received from others and through the Spirit of God. She tells how she found purpose and hope after unspeakable tragedy, and how she grew closer to God after Grants tragic death.
Praise for Grieving Grant
In her debut book, Grieving Grant: Growing Closer to God through the Death of My Son, Tif McDevitt holds nothing back as she chronicles the months leading up to and following the tragic loss of her firstborn shortly after his eighteenth birthday. McDevitt courageously and unapologetically shares the depth of her grief through a collection of original narratives, letters, artifacts, and poetry. But in the midst of unimaginable pain, the author faithfully watches for signs of the promises made by an all-powerful God. As these are revealed, McDevitt records divinely delivered messages of assurance.
