Finding Purpose In Grief And Suffering

Everyone knows someone who has lost a spouse, a child, and undergone great agony and hopelessness. In Finding Purpose in Grief and Loneliness, Pastor Lutzer helps us navigate the pain—whether for ourselves or someone else who needs direction and a shoulder to cry on. 

  • Discover the difference between "good grief" and "bad grief." Escape "bad grief" traps.
  • Find out what to say—and what not to say—in comforting someone grieving a loss.
  • Learn from the lives of people Pastor Lutzer has helped, including a woman in such deep grief at the loss of her husband that she wanted to take her own life. Hear what he told her and the difference it made.
  • Gain insight from Pastor Lutzer on the danger—especially for men—of remarrying too soon after losing a spouse.

Let's prepare for when grief and loneliness invade our lives—and be ready to bring real comfort and solace to others.

Sparkling emotion became liquid on his cheeks. … Read More >
