"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.

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.

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.

Reading this Blogged Book


Jean Ann, August 2015

It's been too long since I posted. After having health problems over the last year and with solutions to them, I'm now able to pick back up more of my writing duties.

I wanted to explain how to read this blogged book "God's Mercies after Suicide." For some it is understandable. But for others who are in fresh grief, I may need to explain.

Scroll down on the right side bar and under Blog Archive there are the month dates for when I started and concluded the book. If you go to March 16, 2015, this is the first post introducting "God's Mercies after Suicide." You may click on March 16, 2015 and read chronilolgically from there until the last post of Wednesday, August 5, 2015.

I'm still waiting to hear back from the publisher that is interested in publishing "God's Mercies after Suicide." It's my understanding the book is to begin the process of production in spring 2016.

I'll let you know when I hear for certain.

Until next time . . . know our God sees all which goes on and cares.
