Love, Loss, and Something Good Out of it.

The beautiful Terri has had her book published! I am thrilled for her. She has allowed the Lord to make something for you and me out of her pain. She and her family lost their precious 12 year old son Trent in an accident last year. I have followed her blog posts for awhile now, and when I saw the news there I was just sick. I couldn't believe it. I had to read it and reread it. It just wouldn't sink in. Since then she has courageously shared and bared her soul, in agony at times I have read and followed along in her journey of healing. She has remained faithful to God  through it all.

This is my favorite picture. As you can see her son Trent was a handsome young man- full of life and love and adventure. His loss is an enormous one. Heaven's gain, for sure, but still...hard for the people left behind. Maybe you have experienced a loss. Terri invites you to share. You can visit her blog, visit the book's site, buy the book, and read Trent's story.
Maybe you are curious how a mother can continue to put her faith and trust in God after such a loss. What does she believe? Can she really endure terrible grief and yet rejoicing for her son all at the same time? How is it possible to be okay after such a devastation? I mean, some people never get over a loss like that. Life ends for them when it ended for the one they loved and lost. Good questions. I'm going to order the book myself right now and read all about it.
Go to Renee's blog and read about the radio blog interview with Terri coming up here on November 29th..


  1. Dalyn,

    I had the same reaction as you did when I heard the news, unbelief. Terri has touched my heart these last 10 months in an amazing way. She will be on my Hubby's blog talk radio show on Nov. 29 (the media player on my top right side of blog will have it) Listen in as Terri talks about her book coming out and their story.
