How I Began to Heal

I found it therapeutic to share my testimony of what I experienced while grieving the loss of my mother, so I wrote a book. (Falling in Love With God: A Guide to Overcoming Grief-Available on is an account of how the loss of my mother set me on a journey that opened my heart to experience and love God in a way that I never imagine existed. The book has been such a blessing in that it has brought comfort so many who needed it. Our Father in heaven stands with us through our darkest hour. He is the light that will bring us through. Have faith that he knows your pain, trust that he will bring you through and he will.

Michelle, that is absolutely awesome and a wonderful comfort to many. God is the answer to all our sorrows and in the sad times when we lose loved ones. It is during those times that we can feel God's presence and know He is going to be there always.
Recently I posted a dream I had one night. I am thinking of writing a book about my dream.
I lost my husband on Nov 22 2009 and the going has been rough. I am better now but still miss him.
Anyway in this dream I found myself in heaven and Jesus was standing there and my husband. My husband looked younger and healthy. There were clouds all around and blue skies , a beautiful shade of blue. There were a lot of people in heaven.I felt a kind of peace that I have never felt.
I felt others should know and be comforted and posted as ''Heaven is real.'' And it is because I was there.
I think it is wonderful about your book. I am sorry for the loss of your mother but you will see her again.
My mother will be 86 in May and I cannot imagine life without her. Although her and my dad say they don't need anything I love doing things for them because I know I will not always have her in this lifetime.We have 5 generations going as I became a great grandmother a year ago. Please feel free to email me at
By the way I can see what a wonderful loving daughter you have been. Take care and keep posting. Mari
