    Changed my Life

    I am 38 and an only child. I lost my mom to cancer two years ago. I am a Christian, however, I became a Christian many, many years ago. I was a lost one and especially so in the past two years. I started to try and pick myself up again and went to Prestonwood Baptist in Dallas a few weeks ago and spotted Zig Ziglar himself a few rows down from me. I admired him greatly throughout my sales career and had read many of his sales books, so I thought I would go up to him after the service and just ask if I could shake his hand. He laughed and said he only shook the hands of men, but for women as pretty as me (ha) he liked to hug them. He introduced me to the famous 'red head' right then to. I was beaming. I headed to the Prestonwood book store afterwards just to see what was new on the shelf and saw this book for the very first time. I grabbed it off of the shelf and started reading it that afternoon. I have read this book completely now and my book is literally outlined, highlighted as well as pages torn down for quick reference. I was lost in so many ways and this book helped picked me back up through scripture in a way that I could understand, relate to and rely upon. I confirmed via Zig's words as well as scripture that I would in fact see my mother again in Heaven and we would know one another as well. I also recommitted my life on this Earth to God while reading this book one night. There are NO words to fully explain the impact this book has had upon me. I only wish that the people in this world that were in so much pain from loosing someone they love dearly could have this book beside them right now to comfort them as well as give them hope in more ways than just one.

    Most helpful of 25+ books on grief I have read, I share it with those in Need of comfort!

    After our daughter's death in 1996 I read many books on grieve and death and how others have coped. The book by Zig was a breath of fresh air as I learned than even a respected and grounded Christian struggled in the same ways I did and was not ashamed of his struggle or his Savior. I order 5 to 10 copies each time so that I can share with friends who are experiencing the tragedy of missing a love one's presence.

    On Track

    As a Christian, I found losing my mother- in-law and brother exactly one month apart, stressful, when I suffer from depression and other health problems. However. this book, though I took a long time to read, had exactly the comforting words at the right time and quidance for my actions. I would definitly buy, give, recommed this, book to everyone suffering a lose. Thank you Zigler family for sharing.
