From the Back Cover:

"Anybody can give advice, some people do! We know what that kind of advice is worth. I have known Norma Sawyers-Kurz for almost 25 years. Norma is a dedicated Christian with extremely good insight into the grieving process, gained as it must be, as a surviver, as a grieving parent herself! This, her third book, is more than a 'book.' It is a ministry full of privileged insight dealing with emotional suffering, depression, panic, guilt, anger, the physical aspects of grief, etc. on the road to hope! This book will help grieving parents / siblings / grandparents, as well as those experiencing other kinds of life changing losses, as well as those who want to help such people. Those of us who have 'been there' know that some pain lasts a lifetime, but must and can be 'quieted' only in Christ! I like this book so much that I give you, the reader, this challenge: If this book ministers to you, as I know it will, buy two more copies and give them to people you know who are also struggling with grief! And, give them the same challenge I have given you, to give copies to others, because this book deserves to be shared with as wide an audience as possible!"
~ Dr. Terry Miethe, Internationally Known Christian Scholar, Author of 23 Books in Philosophy, Christian Living, and Apologetics 

"The Grieving Parent's Book of Hope is gentle and considerate, while still being intense and to-the-point in its mission to help bereaved parents keep their focus on God in the face of tragedy."
~ Mary Ruth Pursselley, Author and Apologist

"The Grieving Parent's Book of Hope
is written from the intimate firsthand experience of a mother who has lost a child and takes the reader forward on the path of healing. The loss of a child is especially difficult for parents to overcome because all of us envision long futures for our children. Hope for a bright future builds over time and when a child is lost, not only the single life is gone, but hope for the continuation of future generations is misplaced. This book takes the reader from the lonely path of lost hope to a life once again filled with meaning and purpose. I would gladly recommend this well written guide for anyone seeking to draw hope from unimaginable tragedy."
~ Stephen T. McClard, Author and Noted Band Director

About the Author:

Norma Sawyers-Kurz has written books for grieving parents from the perspective of personal experience. In 1982 her 15-year-old daughter Karen was riding on a motorcycle with a friend when they were struck by a truck. Karen died as a result of injuries received in the accident. Norma was devastated, paralyzed by disbelief and shock. Life isn't supposed to be like this; normally children bury their parents, not the other way around. After years of working through the grief process, she decided to reach out to other grieving parents to share how she survived the most difficult period of her life. Her books help bereaved parents to move from the experience of shock and denial to that of affirming reality. She emphasizes patience, prayer, and the support of  loving family and friends. Norma has also written books from the outlook of those struggling for answers to life questions. In facing her own grief, she had to ask the basic questions that plague many people, such as: Is it wrong to doubt or to question? Why would a good God allow evil and suffering? For those who are struggling with such issues, she provides a starting point from which they may continue their search. It is obvious that Norma has done considerable research for her books, as she quotes numerous other authors who have written books on subjects of both grief and real life questions. Published work by Norma includes four books, a contribution to an anthology, and articles in magazines and journals. She is a graduate of American Christian College, Oklahoma City, where she received the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies. She is a grandmother of three and lives with her husband John and her dog Lady Diana in Southwest Missouri.
