Publishing God's Mercies after Suicide: Blessings Woven through a Mother's Heart

Me and Joshua when he was age six

God's Mercies after Suicide will be an official book by the second week in October.

The print and e-copy will be offered on Amazon, CreateSpace, and in wider distribution.

Joshua, age twelve
Even though God's Mercies after Suicide began as a blogged book here, it has underwent numerous hours of edits, therefore many changes. 

My goal was to write a book which shines so the reader is in the moment as the story unfolds.

Thank you faithful followers for the years you've stuck with me as I wrote the true account of my son's death by suicide and how God stood by me in a myriad of actions and ways. 

God bless each of you and know you are not alone in your grief.

In our Lord and Saviour,

Jean Ann Williams, mother of Joshua who died on March 16, 2004.

"God's Mercies after Suicide: Blessings Woven through a Mother's Heart" Releases November 19, 2016 in Print and Kindle Version

Joshua, on the right, Senior Prom

Announcing my upcoming book of devotions for mothers, which releases on November 19, 2016 and will be available in print and in e-copy. And will be free on this date on Kindle.

As some of you know, "God's Mercies after Suicide" started as a blogged book here on my site. With the book going to print in a few months, my hope is readers will find comfort within its pages. 

The chapters will begin with the true account of what happened beginning on the day our son, Joshua, died by suicide. Also, included are my mother memories of Joshua, and a journal page for readers. 

The journal page has three headings for which to write under and will be formatted as such with space for notes: 

~Your Mother Memories~

~Your Prayer of Praise~

~A Scripture of Encouragement~

If anyone reading this would like a free copy to read before the November release date in exchange for your review on Amazon, please include your email address for me to contact you in the comment section. To protect from spam, please leave your email address written something like this: jeanann_wATyahooDOTcom.

I'll be posting news on the book's progress as the promotion company and I get the word out about "God's Mercies after Suicide".

In the next post, I'll include a link to Book Fun Magazine which will feature my monthly articles from September through January. In the September article, I summerize how God helped me to cope in the early grieving years after the loss of Joshua.

Here's the book trailer: 

Until next time . . . keep leaning on Christ our Savior.

From Darkness to His Light ~A Poem by Geannie Powell

From Darkness to His Light.
By Geannie Powell

I’m sitting here feeling sad and blue,
Unsure of what next to do.
Intellectually I know,
God is in control. 

He will bring me safely thru.

It’s these pesky emotions that get in the way.
They keep me from having a bright, cheery day.
They take me down so low,
Up is the only way to go.

But it’s so dark, I cannot find my way.

The Lord is my light,
From this valley of blight.
His truth I will follow,
In despair I’ll not wallow.

He will set my path aright.

When I’m filled with strife,
As oft happens in life.
I search to find the right way,
I recall what the scriptures say…

I am the truth, the way, and the life.

Life would be so much better if all,
On His righteous hope would call.
He is there for you, too,
Jesus will see you safely thru.

As He does for me, when on His name I call.
