Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
—2 Corinthians 1:3-5
Are you reeling from loss? Mired in grief and despair? Is your heart breaking? Do you long for just a moment’s relief from the pain of your circumstances? Do you feel as though life will never be normal again?
If you or someone you love has experienced the heartbreak of death or divorce, this practical guide will take you from those deep valleys of despair to blue skies and rainbows—from sorrow and heartache to hope and healing!
Writing with compassion, empathy, and encouragement, authors Wilson Adams and David Lanphear answer these questions and more:
Why did this happen to me?
How do I rely on God?
How do I help my children?
What about my loved one’s room and belongings?
How do I face holidays and other days on the calendar?
Can I heal and move on?
Is there hope for happiness?
Packed with Scripture and insight from two who have walked the path of grief and suffering, A Life Lost…and Found will help anyone on the journey toward healing, wholeness, and joy.
Wilson Adams discovered firsthand the agony of divorce. Left alone to raise three children, he writes with compassion on the struggles of being a single parent. Author of Around the House and Around the House Again, Adams lifts readers from the pain of brokenness to the joy of discovering how God can turn tragedy into blessing. He serves as minister with the Cason Lane church of Christ in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
David Lanphear’s oldest son, Adam, was killed in an auto accident in 1999. Five years later, his wife died unexpectedly following a heart attack, just 34 days short of their thirtieth wedding anniversary. He is an attorney, and serves as a Bible class teacher and church elder in Bowling Green, Kentucky. He writes candidly from a spiritual perspective about his personal experience with loss, and his climb from the shadows of sadness to the sunlight of joy.
