Wonderful resource for those needing comfort May 6, 2005
Often, grief looms as a complicated process requiring individuals to move at their own personal pace. For some, the journey is long and arduous; for others, a brief moment in time. No matter how you handle grief, a book like The Twenty-Third Psalm for Those Who Grieve is a great resource. The beautiful book cover alone is enough to begin to soothe your soul, even before reading the tender stories inside. Carmen Leal's words speak to the heart and caress with a gentle hug. This inspirational book makes a wonderful gift for those in need of comfort.
Perfect for those who grieve, and those who offer comfort. Apr 5, 2005
Carmen Leal's second book in The Twenty-Third Psalm series is one of those books that speaks directly to the heart. Told through the honest lens of true-life experiences, it carries a message of hope: "The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.--Deuteronomy 33:27"
When my mom died unexpectedly last summer, it felt like my world suddenly stood still. Although people offered comfort the best they knew how, a book like this would have been wonderful to curl up with in those quiet middle-of-the-night hours when I couldn't sleep.
I love it because it's not your typical "grief book". It doesn't dish out advice, or discuss the various steps of grief. It simply offers candid accounts of people just like you and me who lost someone precious in their life, yet with the Shepherd's help, found the strength to continue on.
It makes good sense to keep several copies of The Twenty-Third Psalm for Those Who Grieve on hand as a ministry tool. That's what I intend to do.
Perfect gift for your hurting friends Apr 4, 2005
Carmen Leal's newest Twenty-third Psalm book is the perfect gift for those who are hurting. It is a sensitive reminder that in Christ we have a Shepherd who cares about us, who provides for all our needs, who gives us hope and peace and courage to face the difficult times in our lives. I recommend it highly.
