Morgan James’s new release, When Tragedy Strikes: Rebuilding Your Life with Hope and Healing after the Death of Your Child by Laura Diehl, brings hope to parents struggling after the unthinkable loss of their child.
Losing a child can be one of the most traumatic and heartbreaking experiences in life. This loss causes immeasurable sorrow and grief to those parents who are mourning their child. The unnatural order of burying one’s own child can cause most parents (especially mothers) to slip into a long period of darkness, unable to move forward with their lives. From her own personal experience, Laura Diehl shares her raw and real journey of darkness and pain, but also shares with the readers how to take similar steps out of that pit of darkness, back into light and life.
When Tragedy Strikes: Rebuilding Your Life with Hope and Healing after the Death of YourChild doesn’t try to bring back the old life one once had. Instead, it compares the death of a child to an amputation (like Diehl’s daughter experienced at three years old). It is permanent, and the loss will have a lasting effect for the rest of those parents’ lives, but it doesn’t have to keep those suffering from rebuilding their life with hope and purpose.
Those who have never experienced the death of a child often believe all it takes is a determined will to get past the darkness of grief and get back to normal. This often causes bereaved parents to either isolate themselves, or use all of their energy pretending to be the person others want them to be.
As a parent who has lived through the death of a child, Author Laura Diehl offers other grieving parents the relief they need to be understood, and walks with them through the darkness, being the life-line of hope they need that it is possible to live beyond the death of their child. Anyone who has recently experienced loss will benefit from reading this inspiring book.
