Letters for Dad: A Year of Grieving Since You’ve Been Gone, A Grief and Loss Book

Sam McKenzie Jr

A PERSONAL STORY OF GRIEF AND LOSS FROM DEATH

It’s been said the first year of a loved one passing is the hardest. The grieving person can find the first year of anniversaries, birthdays, holidays and adjusting to life particularly painful. Grief, mourning, and bereavement are different for every person but the stories of others going through this process can be a source of comfort and common ground.

Letters for Dad: A Year of Grieving Since You’ve Been Gone, is a personal account of the grieving process in the first year of an adult son losing his dad. The book is a collection of letters, written to a deceased dad. The letters have been transcribed from the son’s journal given to him by friends as a gift after his dad passed away. The letters are one way conversations expressing the feelings many have after the loss of a loved one.

This work is a short and personal one because these letters were written on anniversaries, holidays and birthdays when emotions and memories are the strongest. This is not a “feel good” book, but rather, a book filled with feelings.

Read these letters to go through someone else’s dreams of the deceased, thoughts on death, and bouts with depression.

Read these letters to glance at another person’s grief, struggles with faith and stress over finances.

Read these letters to view on display being estranged from the recently deceased, regret, resentment and sibling conflict.

Read these letters to unravel a personal account of relating to a surviving parent, relating to a romantic partner and returning to work.

Read these letters for a companion in the first year of grieving a loved one.

Cicada Song (The Anderson Series Book 1)

Cicada Song (The Anderson Series Book 1)

Bradford Combs

Cicadas appear every seventeen years in such quantity that they fill the skies and harmlessly pelt anything that moves. The town of Anderson celebrates the coming of these insects with a festival that they call Cicada Song.

In 1987, a young boy named Jacob Ramsey fell for a girl named Sara whose family was visiting for Cicada Song. Little did they realize, however, that their young love would end ten years later during the most shocking moment of Anderson’s history.

Time passes and the next Cicada Song begins. Self-published author Ellis Barnes is invited to Anderson as an attraction, and there he meets the quick-witted but guarded Sara, now fully grown and quite lovely. He quickly falls for her, but something from Sara’s past prevents her from getting too close. Facing resistance from Jacob Ramsey’s best friend, Stan, and the town drunk, Phil, Ellis is determined to uncover exactly what Sara’s mysterious past is. What he finds will force Ellis to confront a faith-shattering tragedy from his own past, a tragedy that diminished his faith in the Christian church, but also one which might hold the key to overcoming Sara’s private barriers. And what secret does Phil, the town drunk, hold regarding the moment that shattered Sara’s life forever?

The End of Me: Where Real Life in the Upside-Down Ways of Jesus Begins

Kyle Idleman

Are you sometimes perplexed with Jesus’s teaching? Do you really want what he wants? Bestselling author Kyle Idleman reveals that the key to the abundant life Jesus promised lies in embracing His inside-out way of life.

As he examines Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount, Kyle unpacks the many counter-intuitive truths, including: brokenness is the way to wholeness, mourning is the path to blessing, and emptiness is required in order to know true fullness. Ultimately you will discover how Jesus transforms you as you begin to live out these paradoxical principles. Because only when you come to the end of yourself can you begin to experience the full, blessed, and whole life Jesus offers.

Kyle Idleman is the teaching pastor at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky, the fifth largest church in America. The bestselling author of the award-winning book Not a Fan and AHA is a frequent speaker at conferences and events around the world. Kyle and his wife, DesiRae, have four children.

The Discarded Image: An Introduction to Medieval and Renaissance Literature

The Discarded Image: An Introduction to Medieval and Renaissance Literature

C. S. Lewis

In The Discarded Image, C.S. Lewis paints a lucid picture of the medieval world view, providing the historical and cultural background to the literature of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. It describes the “image” discarded by later years as “the medieval synthesis itself, the whole organization of their theology, science and history into a single, complex, harmonious mental model of the universe.” This, Lewis’s last book, has been hailed as “the final memorial to the work of a great scholar and teacher and a wise and noble mind.”

The Story of Christianity: Volume 1: The Early Church to the Dawn of the Reformation

Justo L. Gonzalez

In this fully revised and updated edition, the lauded church historian Justo González tells the story of Christianity from its fragile infancy to its pervasive dominance at the dawn of the Protestant Reformation. The Story of Christianity, volume 1, relates the dramatic events, the colorful characters, and the revolutionary ideas that shaped the first fifteen centuries of the church’s life and thought.

From Jesus’s faithful apostles to the early reformist John Wycliffe, González skillfully weaves details from the lives of prominent figures tracing core theological issues and developments within the various traditions of the church. The Story of Christianity demonstrates at each point what new challenges and opportunities faced the church and how Christians struggled with the various options open to them, thereby shaping the future direction of the church.

This new edition of The Story of Christianity incorporates recent archaeological discoveries to give us a better view of the early Christian communities. Among these are advances in the recovery of Gnostic texts that have revealed a richer diversity of “Christianities” in the first century. González also includes important research done in the past twenty-five years revealing the significant role of women throughout the history of the church.

With lively storytelling incorporating the latest research, The Story of Christianity provides a fascinating introduction to the panoramic history of Christianity.

Just. One. Day. Altered Stella’s family forever.

——–
Widowed and now single, Stella Heart juggled between managing her professional career and struggling to communicate with her teenage daughter, Sharon. Their common ground crumbled beneath their different beliefs about God. While Stella believed in God, her daughter didn’t. Sharon instead held strongly to what they taught her in school—until the day a disaster struck and the ground physically gave way—altering both their perspectives about each other, and more than one person’s resistance to God.
Stella’s concerns multiplied when she gets lost in search of Sharon. In the ensuing chaos, she runs into Michael, a Christian man with a mysterious past whom danger seemed to follow—and she wondered how many more unseen twists God trusted her her fragile heart to handle.
Can she trust Michael beyond what he appears to be hiding from her, or will her own fears cloud her judgement when extreme danger surfaces?
