In addition to the wonderful church I belong to- Greenford Christian. Who was there in my hospital room after Nathan died praying over me and who was there in the waiting room with me when my newborn was being operated on. Here are some books and music that helped/continue to help me tremendously with my grief.

You’ll Get Through This- Max Lucado

An anonymous person from my church sent this book to me and I have since passed it on and bought another copy for someone else. I would suggest it to anyone who has had “knees hit the floor” life moments.

Another good read is Through The Eyes of a Lion- Levi Lusko

In addition to my church and books, music is very healing to me. KLove is my go to station for comfort.  Here are four songs that I really connect with. I included some lyrics to each song but I would highly recommend listening to each one in its entirety.

Thy Will Be Done- Hillary Scott

“I don’t wanna think

I may never understand

That my broken heart is a part of your plan

When I try to pray

All I’ve got is hurt and these four words

Thy will be done”

God Only Knows- For King & Country

“God only knows what you’ve been through

God only knows what they say about you

God only knows how it’s killing you

But there’s a kind of love that God only knows”


God’s Not Done with You- Tauren Wells

“Right now all you see are ashes

Where there was a flame

The truth is that you’re not forgotten

‘Cause Grace knows your name

God’s not done with you

Even with your broken heart and your wounds and your scars

God’s not done with you

Even when you’re lost and it’s hard and you’re falling apart

God’s not done with you

It’s not over, it’s only begun

So don’t hide, don’t run

‘Cause God’s not done with You”


Scars- I Am They

“’Cause my brokenness brought me to You

And these wounds are a story You’ll use

So I’m thankful for the scars

‘Cause without them I wouldn’t know Your heart

And I know they’ll always tell of who You are

So forever I am thankful for the scars”


Symphony- Switch

“And even in the madness, there is peace

Drowning out the voices all around me

Through all of this chaos

You were writing a symphony, a symphony”
