One of the most beautiful and deeply-moving stories you will ever read! A wonderful book for those who are grieving, but also a wonderful book for all of us who suffer loss in so many different ways. Kathy writes with honesty through her own pain to speak to that place in all of our hearts that often wonders what God is doing and longs to see how He will show up in our pain each and every day.

Only someone who has suffered this much could write a book this helpful for those who grieve. The author shares her own journey in a way that will bring hope to others also. I highly recommend this book.Lovely Traces of Hope

    Read this story of a woman who is learning to trust the God of Love through the process of life… which for her is through the process of death.

    Behold this story and trust the slow work of God.


  • Deb Nevergall, Author of The Heart Never Forgets:

    Sometimes I feel stuck and purposeless … But today I heard ‘Deb, I have called you to a specific purpose. Don’t fret’ 

    Your words are heart wrenching, yet inspiring. As a mother, and especially one walking the same broken road, I feel every sharp pang of despair. Yet there is hope hope in a brown and muddy world. Thank you for being a light to all of us walking in battle worn and tattered shoes. God bless.
