Carolina Comfort
     During grief sometimes God is the last person that you may want to talk to. Some people choose to blame God for their personal loss. Others may simply ask God, “Why me”? Once I made the decision to stop asking questions and give everything I felt to God, my burdens were lifted immediately. I poured my heart out to him in prayer and he gave me peace, comfort and his love. This was a spiritual moment of God giving me direction on how to fully recover from my personal grief and loss. 

About the Author

      Those who have read the book identify with Thompson’s personal insights and realize themselves the path to recovery after grief, loss and despair. “Phyllis manages to use ordinary life experiences to reveal the extraordinary powers of God,” says Deidre Haggar Mooring. “This book tells the secret of many children and silent adults. It gives a voice to their pain and rejection”, says Shirley Moore. Greg Manora expresses, “I have also felt the indescribable pain and sorrow of rejection. The lonely search for identity and self-worth is often paralyzing to the human spirit. Yet when society counted me as a statistic; black, fatherless, poor and without redeeming merit: God said, “I will take him”. We can all find solace in the journey. Pain is the cousin of joy and regardless of how difficult times may seem joy comes in the morning.”
