“Moving From Broken to Beautiful Through Grief” by Yvonne Ortega

When I heard that my son had cancer for the third time, my attitude wasn’t very good.  I was angry with God and Satan and everyone who annoyed me in the slightest.  So when I found this book was available to me, I decided to read it.  Hey, what could it hurt?  I was feeling grief (among other things) over what my son was going through.

I would say Ms. Ortega had every right to write this book.  Seven years ago, she suffered the loss of two aunts, her mother, and her only child within a seven-month time period!  Can you imagine?  So I’d say she is an authority on grief management.

Yvonne put a lot of work into this book.  There are activities, affirmations, Bible readings, prayers, music recommendations, and moments she shares with the reader.  She wants so much to help you through your grief, you can’t help but appreciate her giving spirit.

You learn to identify the “Wound Salters” from the Comforting Angels.  You learn how to handle the anger, tears, and regret.  You learn how to make it through the holidays without your loved one at your side.  You learn to not fight the new normal.  You learn the dangers of self-medication.  You learn to hold on to your faith instead of allowing it to fade.  And you see how you grow through grief.

I recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with grief.  It’s easy to feel alone in your despair, but Yvonne has been where you are right now.  She longs to take you by the hand and lead you through this valley. (Jesus will take your other hand!)

The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through BookCrash.

I've been a Christian since 1991. I enjoy Beth Moore Bible studies and books about using your gift for God. I've been writing since high school. It is what I came to this earth to do! I also love reading books. I'm never without one! It is my wish to inspire others through my writing.
