The end of a precious life has come unnaturally. You may wonder how you can possibly survive your loved one's suicide. Anger, guilt, hopelessness, and unanswered questions may swirl wildly around in your mind while you try to hang on, searching for a sign that you will come through this trauma in your life. 

With deep sensitivity, June Cerza Kolf, a veteran of hospice work, addresses the uniquely painful issues you are facing right now, such as forgiveness, depression, and the search for answers. Standing in the Shadow will lead you through mourning to acceptance and will help you release your guilt and anger and embrace the mighty power of prayer.

"Think of your grief as a journey," Kolf writes. "Like any journey, you must take it one step at a time. Travel slowly and allow plenty of time to pause and rest along the way." With her help, you can travel the road back to purposeful and meaningful living. Though it may be hard to believe, you can eventually move out of this dark shadow and back into the sunlight.
