Item description for Roses in December: Comfort for the Grieving Heart by Marilyn Willett Heavilin...

A mother who has lost three sons helps readers understand the grieving process, support family members, give insight into sibling grief, and maintain a marriage during hard times.

Publishers Description

Used for years by individuals, grief counselors, and support groups, "Roses in December" has helped readers understand the grieving process, support family members, give insight into sibling grief, and maintain their marriages during difficult times. This newly revised edition offers the same compassion and encouragement plus chapters on losing loved ones under special circumstances, such as suicide and AIDS.

With deep empathy, Marilyn helps those who are grieving find God's comfort. Having lost three sons, she knows the tremendous sorrows and struggles that come with the death of loved ones. Yet she shares how even in the winters of our lives God provides roses--special occasions, special people, and special memories--to give us strength and draw close to Him.

Reviews - What do customers think about Roses In December (Repack)?

Excellent book  Jan 9, 2007
Grief has a life of its own. You don't know this until you are faced with it. Unless you are able to talk with someone who has experienced it or read a book such as this one, no one can understand what you are feeling. I appreciated Marilyn's candidness of all she was feeling and how she came through it. It was a comfort to find that I was feeling some of the same things she was feeling. That brings healing in itself.

I recommend this book highly to anyone who has lost someone and is grieving. You will find yourself connecting with Marilyn and it will help you know that what you are feeling is normal. I would also like to add that her Christian perspective is vital. Because it's times like this when we see our need for the Lord; his grace, strength, and presence in our lives. Many would ask: "How could God let this happen?" Well, it happens to all of us at one time or another...that is reality. The question should be: "How can God help me?" And He will.
Help For The Grieving   Sep 8, 2006
So far, this has been the best help for me after my baby boy was stillborn 12 weeks ago. The author is very compassionate. I'd recommend it to anyone who has experienced the loss of a child.
A thoughtful and thought-provoking understanding of God and the remarkable empathy and healing power of God's comfort  Jun 7, 2006
Roses In December: Comfort For The Grieving Heart by Marilyn Willett Heavilin presents readers with an thoughtful and thought-provoking understanding of God and the remarkable empathy and healing power of God's comfort. Providing an expansive introduction to the living grace of God for those who grieve the loss of a loved one, Roses In December presents readers with a comprehensive and easy-to-follow mapping of God and the special attributions of such an accepting deity. Roses In December is very strongly recommended for all readers hoping for an accessible guide to a more spiritual response to the inevitable disappointments of marriage, sibling conflicts, familial disputes, as well as support and understanding the grieving process brought on by personal tragedy or the death of loved ones.
Help Through Grief  Nov 11, 2005
In August 1987, I went through what is medically referred to as a missed abortion...the miscarriage didn't complete, and thus I was left carrying a dead baby for another month until she was born. After her birth, I was in the Family Book Store and happened across this book. I promptly purchased it, took it home and read it at one sitting. In this book I learned that it is okay to be angry with God, to vent feelings of anger and frustration. There had been several books on the list given to me at the hospital, but nothing to compare to this book. I actually went back to the store and purchased a second copy which I gave to my doctor. Found out later that he too purchased several copies that he gave as gifts to some of his colleagues. Also he had this book added to the list of reading material given out by the hospital. Bacause of people like Marilyn who was willing to share her deepest feelings with the rest of the world, we have this very wonderful book. Grief is something that each of us handles in our own unique way, and this book is definitely a help in getting through the grieving process.
Healing  Oct 24, 2005
After losing our 11 month old son suddenly in 1999, I found this book to be very helpful in my healing process. It is really a wonderful guide for all those involved in the grief process. It really is a "must read" for clergy and leaders in the church.
