Friday’s Insight

As with many weeks before over the years, this week I found myself giving away a small book of grace that has meant a lot to me over the years.  The title of the book is Healing After Loss: Daily Meditations For Working Through Grief by Martha Whitmore Hickman.  Ms. Whitmore Hickman wrote the book of daily readings after losing members of her own immediate family in a relatively short period of time.  Many of my friends and family have joined me in praising the book.  Perhaps you’ll want to check it out and see if it fits the needs of you and those in your own circles of friendship and family.  Best wishes, Melody

What is “Journeys of Heartache and Grace” about?

“Journeys of Heartache and Grace: Conversations and Life Lessons from Young People with Serious Illnesses” is a book on communicating with loved ones during tough times when people become seriously ill.  I based the book on poignant, practical and heartfelt dissertation interviews with young people ages six to 20 facing life-threatening or serious chronic illnesses.  Without exception, the life lessons apply to people of all ages, through good times and bad.
