Preston and Glenda Parrish experienced the sudden death of their 25-year-old son, Nathan, in the same week that Preston's father died. In Finding Hope in Times of Grief, the Parrishes candidly share their story and the struggles they faced, as well as how they found hope in Christ and in the pages of the Bible. Writing not from theory but from experience, the Parrishes come alongside others who grieve, pointing them to God's all-sufficient grace, grace that is great enough to infuse even their worst moments with His comfort.

This book will help those who grieve to

  • know God's presence and peace in the midst of their suffering
  • realize that hope still exists and can be known
  • understand that their suffering can assume a place of purpose in their life and in the lives of others

Finding Hope in Times of Grief points readers to the surpassing hope we have in Christ and the comfort that comes ultimately from God Himself. This book will also help family members and friends better understand how to support those who grieve.

Review:

"Grief is never invited. It shows up at the most unexpected times, and leaves us with a whirlwind of thoughts and emotions. Preston and Glenda Parrish have walked the road of grief and in their pain have found hope. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has had an encounter with grief."
Gary Chapman, author of The Five Love Languages

"Preston and Glenda Parrish have lived through what no parent ever wants to experience—the loss of a child. The key is how they have 'lived through' grief that had the potential of paralyzing the progress of life. God intends for us to press on. He is the source of strength that points us forward through assurance that the Savior and Comforter the Lord Jesus Christ walks with us through every dark valley, teaching us how to look beyond our own grief so that we can reach out to others who may not know where to turn when their time of grief strikes. Delve into the richness of God's promises through their story of Finding Hope in Times of Grief."
Franklin Graham, President and CEO Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Samaritan's Purse

"Life presents unprecedented pain when experiencing the sudden death of someone precious. Preston and Glenda Parrish have learned this lesson firsthand in the untimely death of their son, Nathan. Because of God's faithfulness, they discovered that death ushers you to a front row seat of God's unending mercy and grace. I rejoiced reading their book and remembered vividly my own parallel experience of the darkest moments of despair and the hope found in the holy intimacy with God. He healed my broken heart and bound up my wounds after the sudden, tragic death of my astronaut husband. May you be encouraged and filled with hope as you read this wonderful book."
Evelyn Husband Thompson, widow of Columbia Space Shuttle Commander, Rick Husband

"Are your thoughts over the loss of someone dear to you paralyzing you? Do you feel hopeless in facing the cold, hard reality of your loss? Preston and Glenda have personally found that HOPE in God's faithfulness in their tragic loss really does exist and can be known in the midst of deep grief. Their honesty, transparency, faith and perseverance will bless, strengthen, encourage and help you during your hard moments and difficult days."
Joseph Northcut, Director of Church Ministries, GriefShare.org

"I can think of several families right now that I want to hand this book to. Preston and Glenda have shared so openly and honestly about their own tragedy and grief. In a word, this book is REAL. Real with the pain we feel when we lose someone we love. And real with the hope we have in the God of comfort."
Matthew West, Grammy nominee and Dove Award winner, singer and songwriter

"If you've ever sat at a graveside, heartbroken and lost, this is the book for you. With tender grace and deep authenticity, the Parrishes will walk with you through the rocky roads of grief. This book is a treasure of truth written by those who understand that dance between sorrow and hope."
Lysa TerKeurst, author of What Happens When Women Say Yes to God and Made to Crave
