A recipient of Illumination and Moonbeam medals, and featured on Focus on the Family's daily radio broadcast, Emily Lost Someone She Loved helps point grieving children back to Jesus after tragedy.
Emily Lost Someone She Loved is a story about adorable, vivacious, eight-year-old Emily who experiences the traumatic loss of someone close to her. Suddenly, nothing in her world makes sense.
The book communicates real emotions children feel when they lose a loved one, and helps them to see that God both knows and cares how they feel. It's a book that can be read over and over again, restoring faith in God and hope for the future.
I am the mom of three children whose birth mother died of cancer when they were young. When I met them, they were ages twelve, ten, and eight, all grieving in very different ways. Writing this book was a redemptive process for me. It’s the book I wish had been available to me when I was trying to raise three grieving children. I was unequipped, overwhelmed, and often frustrated. I didn’t recognize, at the time, what my children needed most from me. I hope you will see in Emily Lost Someone She Loved a life-giving way forward for families in the midst of devastating loss.
