Author and Bible teacher Sherri Burgess leads readers on her journey to understanding the purpose behind pain through the powerful story of her son Bronner’s earthly death. Using her rich, marvelous experiences of God’s works since her son’s heaven going, she provides comforting assurance that God truly is everything we need in this life. An empowering resource for small-group discussion or book clubs, this book is a call to action and a beckoning to know our Holy God like never before.
My thoughts: I appreciate Sherri's willingness to open up about the tragedy of her two year old son, Bronner, dying in a pool accident. The book is full of honest, raw feelings and recollections, helping other parents who have lost a child. She does a beautiful job of tying in scriptures and leaving one with a message of hope. As a mother of young children, this book was hard for me to read, but I feel like it not only helps those who have been through a tragedy, but also helps those who have friends who have been through losing a child to know what the pain is like.
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
