Why I Needed To Read This Book - Grieving God's Way By Margaret Brownley

Grieving God’s Way by Margaret Brownley hit home with me, I wish this book had been around 40 some years ago when tragedy struck my family. I was in a puddle of quicksand, that is the only way I can explain the grief I was drowning in for all these years.

I had a brother shoot himself while I was home, and not even a week later after his funeral my step brother hung himself while in the army. I was only 14 years old at the time, and in a world of my own with no help from anyone. My mother drank through her grief my dad just worked all of the time. I had no one to help me out of this black hole I felt like I was in.

Brownley covers everything in this book that I felt and that I went through. I would recommend this book to anyone who has never dealt with their grief or who are grieving. Though I don’t know even for myself at the time I was grieving that I would have been thinking about picking up a book about grief. But I do know after all of these years I have never really dealt head on with my grief and all of those ugly feelings, and I am so thankful I had the chance to read and review this book about grief and God.

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers ( as part of their book review bloggers program. I was asked to post an honest opinion in my own words.

Thank you for stopping by!
