Unmet expectations and conflicts arise, when a person is hurting and doesn't know what they need, and their loved ones don't know what to say or how to help.

By the time author Erica McNeal was thirty-two years old, she was already a three-time cancer survivor, and had experienced the loss of five children, two of which she held in her arms. Those close to her were not sure of how to console her, and some well-intended comments only served to hurt Erica and her family in their healing process.

For example, imagine being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, at twenty-two years old, and having your best friend tell you that she wished she had cancer too, so that people would like her. Or imagine being pressured to hold a friend's baby-a child that was born the same day you buried your daughter, in order to "prove your love" for the couple.

These statements represent only a fraction, and not even the worst, of the painful words spoken to her family while they struggled through cancer treatments and grieved the loss of their children.

Good Grief! is a book filled with tangible solutions for determining what to say, what not to say, and what to do, in order to love others well, through difficult times!

About the Author:

ERICA MCNEAL is a military wife and stay-at-home mom, with fifteen years of experience in Youth, Marriage and Women's ministries. A graduate of Hope International University, Erica received her B.A. in Church Ministry. Erica's undertaking is to challenge the Christian line that states God will not give us more than we can handle, because she believes that God will allow us to be stretched beyond our human capabilities, in order to show us our need for Him, to deepen our faith and to show us that His strength is limitless!

Review:

"The truth of God that has been experienced in the life of another is a foolproof guide. Erica McNeal has just this expertise from a life of perseverance in areas that may comfort us all."   Tommy Nelson, Author and Pastor Denton Bible Church, Denton, TX

"All of us will eventually have to walk through the valley either personally or with someone we love. This book will prepare you for that journey." Ken Davis, Author, Speaker, Comedian and Speaking Consultant

"The title of this book tells it all. Even God can use our deepest grief for His ultimate good. If you are going through suffering, have gone through suffering, or know someone who is, then this book will be a tremendous guide and comfort for you." Sean McDowell, Speaker, Educator, and Author of GodQuest

"Good Grief! should be required reading for every pastor who wants to truly minister to the people of their church!"  Kevin Baker, Senior Pastor, Martha Road Baptist Church, Altus, OK

"Good Grief! is a book that must be read!  It comes straight from the heart and deals with the reality of pain and grief, but in a way that leads to hope and healing. It is a must for anyone looking for hope and meaning in our fallen world."  Dr. Doug Munton, Senior Pastor First Baptist Church, O'Fallon, IL
