Ebook – The Joy and Agony of a Parents Life by Elsabie vd Westhuizen

R100.00

ISBN: 978-0-6399281-4-2

Summary of content

The purpose of this book is firstly to honour God by describing the wonder of His involvement in our times of trauma and loss.  I also endeavoured to portray the miracles that we experienced before, during and after our son’s death to bring hope and encouragement to all those who are currently mourning.  During a recent course that I attended with the journalists of “Skryfgeheime” the need for such a book was discussed.  Apart from the need, I felt the urge in me to write a book about the death of our son.  Relationship with God in the family and also in the life of a child is a very important aspect covered in the book.  I also shared the experiences of each family member as well as the mistakes we made during our time of mourning.

 

In the end I dedicated a chapter to the process of mourning.  This was written from our own experience as a family, but also confirmed and strengthened by research on the subject of mourning the loss of a loved one.  I added photos where it was needed in order to visually make reality a greater truth.  I wanted to use our own experience to help people in despair to focus once again and accept help during their time of mourning.  After an interview on Radio Pulpit in the months after our sons death, the cry for help from so many people was clear.  The book may also serve as another resource with other books on the same subject.  Every person is unique and so is every story.
