Not Alone in Grief ~ Giveaway!!

Published by at 3:04 pm under Faith,Grief,Reading,Suffering

THE GIVEAWAY
IS NOW CLOSED!!

This is a first, I think, for Joyful Domesticity ~ a giveaway!!
Please share this giveaway by sharing this post’s link,
especially if you know someone suffering the grief of miscarriage.

P1030402

…~…~…~…

In this you rejoice,
though now for a little while, if necessary,
you have been grieved by various trials,

so that the tested genuineness of your faith—
more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—
may be found to result in praise and glory and honor
at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 1:6-7

My two favorite go-to books for gifting to someone suffering a miscarriage are Samuel Rutherford’s The Loveliness of Christ and Nancy Guthrie’s The One Year Book of Hope. I don’t even know how many copies of those books I have bought and shared with others through the years, but I always figure if the person I give one to already has a copy, at least now I’ve given them a second copy so they too can pay-it-forward and continue the line of encouragement for those who are suffering. When we are in grief, we can feel so isolated & alone ~ but please remember, you are not alone.

Bear one another’s burdens,
and so fulfill the law of Christ.

Galatians 6:2

To enter the giveaway for a chance to win one of these two books, please leave a comment simply sharing whether you would prefer to receive a copy of Rutherford’s book or Guthrie’s book, and whether it would be for yourself or for someone you know.

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up
1 Thessalonians 5:11

I will leave the comments open through this week, and randomly choose a comment (blindly picking a number) on Sunday, August 30th ~ I will update the post with the winner, and contact the winner by email so I can arrange to ship your new book to you right away.

Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.
Romans 12:15

    I would love the one year book of hope to give away.
    I had a friend have an ultrasound last wed and everything was perfect with her 16 week old baby boy as healthy as can be and the next morning she went into labor which they could not stop and she delivered a perfectly formed little boy and they named him Job. They will be having a grave side service for him today and I know they are greiving and hurting so deeply and would love to send her this book as it has helped me so much through my pain!

    I would like “The Loveliness of Christ” to give away. I was given two copies last year when we lost Francis. Since then I’ve had 3 close friends lose babies, and that was always the book I thought of when I wanted to send something.

    I would like The Loveliness of Christ to read and then give away to a dear friend who has been through some of the same circumstances/situations/grief/loss that I have been through. Thank you for the giveaway; how fun!

    I would love a copy of Nancy’s book. I’m going to a conference with her as a speaker in September. :)

    “The Loveliness of Christ” sounds amazing. I’d love to read it then pass it on.
