Very helpful book  Mar 30, 2009
This book really helped me where I was at with the grieving and loss of being near my children and grandchildren. A must-read for parents of missionaries
 
A bedside companion for parents of missionaries  Dec 26, 2008
We just put our kids and only grandchild on a plane headed for southern Africa. It was our first time to say such goodbyes. We received this book the week they were to leave and it gave us the helps to make that first goodbye less painful, more supportive, and with a perspective of hope and grace. A mere week later we got to meet the authors at a meeting in our home city and they were welcoming, warm, and encouraged us personally, along with some 75 other Parents of Missionaries (POMs) This book will serve us well for years to come. It is our bedside companion to not only direct our hearts, prayers, and actions, but offers us perspective for ourselves and our view of our children's work and their needs overseas. Looking over all that is available, which is next to nothing, this is the best available. Its balanced, even including sensitivity to parents who are not Christian who have said goodbye to kids who are off to serve for the sake of their faith. I have ordered multiple copies to give as a gift to fellow POM's. You not only hear from the author's studies and personal experiences but also other POM's. Find prayers, activities, means of communications, and hope.
