After My Son's Suicide
After My Son’s Suicide tells how to find comfort in Christ and strength to go on after the trauma of the suicide of a loved one through my personal experience. I invite the reader to share my journey from despair to joy and I tell in detail how I accomplished it. I take on the most perplexing questions, counter the most common misunderstandings, and educate in regard to the contributing factors that most often lead to suicide.
This book offers spiritual edification, comfort from the scriptures, and an invitation to come to Christ to be healed. It addresses many hard questions suicide grievers commonly grapple with, such as:
• Where is my loved one now?
• What happens in the spirit world?
• How can I forgive and be forgiven?
• What do I do with my feelings of failure, anger, hurt, and blame?
• Can I ever get over the grief?
• How can Christ’s Atonement help me to heal?
This first-person story is spiritually based, but readers can also reap the benefits of the best self-help information I’ve gleaned from many sources, including an excellent resource guide. I’ve included grief-work exercises and a comprehensive list of Do’s and Don’ts for both the griever and those who wish to support the griever. Most importantly, this book brings God and His word, including LDS scriptures and quotes from modern prophets, into the recovery process. The biggest strength of the book is that it constantly turns the reader to the one true Source of final strength and comfort.
