"This book is more about living than about being brokenhearted. It's more about life than death, more about hope than heartache." - Paul O'Rear
Everyone has experienced – or will experience – the death of someone they love. How do you go on living when it seems your heart will never be whole again? How do you get back to a place where your life doesn’t feel completely broken and shattered? Is that even possible? And how do you help a friend who seems hopelessly adrift on the dark sea of grief?
In Living with a Broken Heart, Paul O’Rear offers hope to fellow grievers, and practical advice to those wanting to help someone who is grieving. When his 14-year-old daughter Ashley died of cancer, Paul’s grief journey did not unfold quite like he thought it would. Nor did it align with other people’s expectations concerning how he should grieve. He began taking notes about his experiences, and offers his insights in this book. His prayer for you is that you will find peace in the midst of heartache, blessings in the midst of trials, and hope in the midst of despair; and that you will once again reclaim the joy of loving, and laughing, and living … with a broken heart.
