Resources (Stuff I Like)

I have a few go-to resources to help me deal with losing Neil and grow in my relationship with God. Here are my favorites so far:

Proverbs 31 Ministries is a non-profit Christian ministry that supports women in their daily lives and their relationships with God by daily devotions, Bible studies, daily podcasts, resources, and conferences. My sister-in law introduced me to the site,  and  I subscribe to the daily devotion, reading it each day at lunchtime. Check it out here at

Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence, by Sarah Young, is a book of daily devotions written as messages from God, with themes like gratitude, trust, joy, rest and prayer. It was given to me a few years by my Mom, and I have read it almost every day since, usually before I even leave the house in the morning. It is available here at

My current theme song is See you Again, by Carrie Underwood:

                    Sometimes I feel my heart is breaking,
                     but I hold on and I stay strong, because I know
                     I will see you again. This is not where it ends.
                     I will carry you with me till I see you again.

Healing after Loss: Daily Meditations for Working through Grief, by Martha Whitmore Hickman, is a book of daily reflections given to me by dear friends who also suffered a great loss. The book is an inspiration, and so are these friends, whose faith in God gives them the courage to accept His will, even when it is so very hard to do. Its available here at
