9781932902518: The Undertaker's Wife: Wisdom and Musings; Life in a Small Town Funeral Home

The fascinating life journey of the wife of an undertaker will help those who are running too fast to pause to consider their own life journey. Through these wonderful stories readers will find a new appreciation of life as a gift to be celebrated now, and death as something to view without fear. A helpful and engaging story written by a woman who lives and ministers from the small town funeral home she and her husband own. A celebration of life through the lens of a small town funeral home and a woman’s journey of faith. Written in a James Herriott/All Things Bright and Beautiful style makes The Undertaker's Wife both engaging and readable just for its pure story. There are few authors with Celia Hastings' credentials which include both the actual running of a funeral home and an advanced theological degree. Delightful and informing, full of wit and widsom.
