Sometimes Life Is Just Not  300x300 IP#184 Fr. Joe Kempf   No One Cries the Wrong Way on Inside the Pages

Sometimes Life is Just Not Fair
God understands… and will always be there to help us find a way.

For everyone, life can be really hard sometimes. But never fear: Father Joe Kempf and his furry friends, Big Al and Annie, are back with plenty of support. The best-selling tandem tackles some tough issues in this book in a way that a child will understand: If God is so good, why do innocent people suffer? What is our hope when someone we love dies? How do we go on when our hearts are broken?

When the heartaches come, these reflections, prayers, and activities will help every child find their way forward with God. In the back of the book, parents, grandparents, and teachers will find the coaching they need to love their children through the difficult times.

This wonderfully illustrated book meets the child (and the child in each of us) right where we are with just what we need. No one connects faith and real life like Fr. Joe and Big Al. Sometimes Life is Just Not Fair is the perfect book for when the difficult times come…and they visit us all.

Inside the book:




I Wonder What You Do on Your First Day in Heaven
by Phoebe Welsh

What would you do on your first day in heaven? Would you play?  Listen to music?  Fly?

Phoebe Welsh has written a new and beautifully illustrated book that deals with these questions and much, much more.

I WONDER WHAT YOU DO ON YOUR FIRST DAY IN HEAVEN is about birth and celebration, death and grief, wonder and hope. From the opening, “One day a child was born,” Mrs. Welsh’s simply written text and full-page color illustrations gently take her reader on a journey through life and death and grieving, enabling the reader to explore their own feelings about the loss of a loved one.

In introducing her book, Mrs. Welsh writes, “Death and what we believe happens after we die can be a difficult subject for many of us to consider and discuss.  Exploring the many thoughts and feelings we experience following the loss of a loved one can be an important step in the healing process.  I WONDER WHAT YOU DO ON YOUR FIRST DAY IN HEAVEN can open hearts and help begin this very important dialogue.”

I WONDER WHAT YOU DO ON YOUR FIRST DAY IN HEAVEN is intended to share with a friend, with your family or simply to read and reflect on your own. Readers of all ages will connect with the childlike wonderings found on the pages of this book.

Phoebe Welsh lives in Kirkwood, Missouri with her husband, Tim, and their 3 children.  Mrs. Welsh has a master’s degree in education and works for the Special School District tutoring middle school and high school students. (Item #86586) $16.95
 

“...a great tool to talk with children about death and at
the same time comfort adults dealing with loss. It is
simple and gets at exactly the feelings and questions that
are part of a response to death...”

Tear Soup
A Recipe for Healing after Loss
Text by Pat Schwiebert, Text by Chuck DeKlyen, Illustrated by Taylor Bills

In this modern-day fable, a woman who has suffered a terrible loss cooks up a special batch of “tear soup,” blending the unique ingredients of her life into the grief process. Along the way she dispenses a recipe of sound advice for people who are in mourning or know someone who has suffered a loss. The book is richly illustrated with poignant and detailed pictures.

Gift of the Red Bird: The Story of a Divine Encounter Gift of the Red Bird
by Paula D'Arcy
Paula D'Arcy's serene voice powerfully underscores the message of her inspirational true story. As she describes the tragic loss of her husband and child, her painful emotions are real and raw. While still grieving, she must prepare for a new life with her unborn daughter. The author depicts her struggle to find peace with genuine feeling, as she takes the reader through her depression and her failed attempts and ultimate success in gaining spiritual renewal. D'Arcy recounts her experiences, sometimes frightening and dangerous, in an expressive voice that blends her sorrowful remembrances with a steadfast hope of achieving new wholeness. J.J.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine

In Song for Sarah (1979), D'Arcy captured the primal pain of loss, and, since its publication, she has become a popular lecturer and workshop leader in the burgeoning field of grief counseling. Grief, she shows us in this new book, is an ongoing, never-completed process, one that becomes woven into the fabric of the grieving person's spiritual life. Now in midlife, D'Arcy realized that she must move yet further on her journey toward trusting the divine plan. A three-day solitary wilderness trip tested that faith, especially when a massive storm tore through her canyon home. But a red bird that miraculously survived the storm taught her to laud the tiny miracles of our earthly lives.  144 pages, Paperback. (Item #88724) $14.95
