Since the release of Inheritance of Tears, my life has been quite a whirlwind. Very little of the craziness, however, has been a result of the book! In truth, there have been many days over the past two months that I've completely forgotten that something as wonderfully exciting as publishing a book, has taken place. Regular life--the joys and insanity of caring for a household of 6--has been more than enough to occupy my time, thoughts and energy.
And so, as reviews for the book have started to filter in, I've been in a constant state of wonder at God's willingness to use me to serve the church in this way. I'm so happy to see Inheritance of Tears being well-received and pray that it will bear much fruit as it falls into the hands of women who need it.
I'd like to send out a huge "Thank You!" to every single person who has shared about this book. I'm hopeful that your kind efforts will lead to many women being encouraged in their darkest hours.
Recently, I've had the wonderful opportunity to answer some very practical questions regarding miscarriage and how to lovingly serve those who are mourning the loss of their children.
At this time, there are two separate interviews (more to come!) that I would like to share with you. I hope you find them helpful as you seek to minister to those who are suffering:
The first was an interview over at Melissa Afolter's blog in which I shared some very practical ways the church body can love those who miscarry. In this interview I also talk about how we can help cultivate an open environment for women to share about their losses.
The second interview was hosted a little while ago on Christina Fox's blog, To Show Them Jesus. In this interview, I had the opportunity to share how we can thoughtfully council a grieving mother without doing more harm than good.
I'm so grateful to both Melissa and Christina for allowing me to share with their readers on the topic of miscarriage. I truly hope that the practical insights I was able to offer are a benefit to all who read them.
