What I Thought:
When I received Dance With Jesus: From Grief to Grace, I must admit I was surprised. I expected a bigger, wordier book. Grief is a big issue, and so I guess I expected a big book. But after reading the book, I realized that people in the midst of grief cannot handle a big book, with long chapters.
Dance With Jesus is broken up into 22 chapters, each short at only a few pages, and some with not many words on them. It works. The author, who lost her son Kyle, shared her story, her thoughts throughout that time, and her grief. It isn't all sad-there are plenty of uplifting, humorous stories. I applaud the author for opening up her deepest feelings to help others. There are scripture verses throughout the book.
I have not lost someone close to me, but have watched friends who have. The heartache is overwhelming, and I felt like I wish I could do more. Now I have this resource to pass on when needed. Join Susan Mead in the dance at www.DanceWithJesus.com
