About the Book

This grief devotional journal encourages the griever to bring God into their pain as a healer and a guide; and not reject Him in their anger. In the front is a gift page and a place to put the loved one’s picture. The pages start with a scripture followed by the author’s thoughts and reflections, space to journal and a prompt for prayer. Woven throughout are pages to write a letter to the loved one and other pages to put a picture and write about that special memory. The page break evolved and became part of the message. The tapers represent eternity: eternity past and eternity future. The center image is the current moment in time. The journal starts with the raw emotion of recent loss. The journal progresses to encourage the griever to give thanks for the time they had and the memories that remain. The page break progresses and in the second half you start to see a sunrise. In the last part of the book the sun has fully risen and the hand of God is holding it; portraying He has been present the entire journey. It is in the last part the griever is asked to manifest God’s glory through their journey by reaching out to others who are experiencing recent loss.

About the Author

Connie Berg is someone who has experienced the journey of grief. She’s been in the midst of a number storms and emerged on the other side each time growing in her faith with a stronger relationship with her savior, Jesus Christ. She knows the pain of a terminal illness shattering future dreams, of being a caregiver for her young husband with ALS, of being a widow, of raising 3 teenagers as a single parent, of losing all pictures and keepsakes in a house fire, and of a broken relationship with a child. Through each storm she kept her faith in God and with each trial her faith has grown. Through the years she has journaled her pain, asked God to be with her in her grief journeys and has experienced great joy in the Lord and purpose in her life. She was truly inspired when creating these pages and humbly acknowledges the words within came through her but not from her.
