Reviews - What do customers think about Perfect in Weakness?

(RAW Rating: 4.5) - A Personal Account  Jan 4, 2006
It takes a selfless person to candidly share their most painful moments so that others can benefit from their experience. This is exactly what Tina Bryson and her husband Sebastian do in the book PERFECT IN WEAKNESS. Tina delivered her twin boys, Ethan and Elliot, 17 weeks early, and by the end of a long, emotionally draining five months, both of children died. The book is as much a biographical piece as it is a self-help book. In each chapter Tina, drawing from entries of a journal she kept at the time, writes about her experiences, shares scriptures and sometimes hymns that encouraged her during that particular period. At the end of each chapter, she includes a section titled "Think About It," where she she lists questions and activities for readers going throuh their own periods of grief to complete.

One of my favorite chapters in the book was called "Men and Grief." This chapter includes Tina's thoughts on how the illness and subsequent death of her children impacted her husband and their marriage. She explores how her husband Sebastian grieved diffrently, and her struggle to understand and accept those differences. In addition, a passage written by Sebastian himself is included, so readers are privy to his thoughts and feelings. The chapter concludes with Tina commenting on their continued struggle as a couple to cope with the loss and move on with their lives without forgetting their common loss.

PERFECT IN WEAKNESS is a moving account of one family's loss and it highlights the spiritual and emotional journey that resulted from it. In addition, it provided general information about the grief process (specifically the loss of a child), activities, scriptures and general encouragement for readers experiencing similar situations. Most importantly, the book is a fine resource that will be extremely useful for those looking to take a difficult situation and grow as a result of it. Having lost my mother when I was a child, I recall hearing my grandmother recount that there is no loss like losing a child on any number of occaisions. When I became a mother myself, I thought I better understood what she meant by that, but after reading Tina Bryson's book, I now realize that my understanding was limited. She presents the experience with such heartfelt intensity that I couldn't help but empathize in a much deeper way. As such, I would also recommend this book to friends and extended family members of persons grieving the loss of a child.

Compelling and Thought-Provoking!  Jan 25, 2005
No matter what your beliefs,you WILL walk away from this book with a renewed spirit. Tina recounts her personal tragedy in an honest, candid voice. She makes you feel like you're sitting across from her in her living room as she struggles with her feelings and her faith. Tina asks thought provoking questions to guide you through your own grief. This is not only a must read but a must share! Pass it On!
 
Great Book - worth reading  Jan 14, 2005
If you've ever had any type of loss in your life; be it divorce, death of a loved one, friendship ended, etc. then this is a must read. Tina Bryson and her husband teach through their own personal struggles and triumphs how you can begin the path to true healing after a great loss and they talk about the lessons they learned in the process. I highly recommend it. But make sure you keep a box of kleenex close by, because Mrs. Bryson engages all the emotions. This ones a tear jerker.

Thanks for reading,
Kelly
