Loss of our Child - Recommended Grief Books
and other Resources


One of our children as well as our parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles have all passed away which is a sad feeling if we stop and think of all the losses in our life. Our faith and trust in Jesus Christ and serving Him ... as well as knowing without a doubt that we will see our daughter and other family one day in Heaven is what lifts us up and keeps our hearts filled with joy.

We can personally recommend the book entitled "Confessions of a Grieving Christian" by Zig Ziglar. It helped us greatly during our grieving process. It is one of those books you can't put down after beginning to read.

Confessions of a Grieving Christian

Losing a loved one is never easy. Our daughter, Brandi, was in her twenties when she passed due to complications of Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes. She had two young elementary age girls.

To help children through the grief process, we recommend the book "Tear Soup" by Pat Schweibert. You will find more information on the book by clicking the book cover link below.

In addition to our church and our faith in Christ, we list two places below which helped each of us; adults and children through grief. I pray this information will help you as well if you are experiencing grief and the loss of loved ones in your life. May God bless you and may you feel His comfort, love, and peace.

  • - grief classes available in your local area to help adults and teens dealing with grief. In addition to resources in your local area, they also offer a grief help e-mail which comes to your inbox every single day for one year only. There is no spam involved and no costs, plus they do not contact you otherwise. You will only receive the one short email on dealing with grief. I especially recommend taking this step as I always looked forward to those e-mails. You can always unsubscribe if you do not enjoy them.

  • Camp Good Grief - for children grieving the loss of a parent, grandparent, or other significant person.

"Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning." Psalm 30:5
