    Do You Dare?

    I opened Dare to Trust, Dare to Hope Again with high expectations¿and I was not disappointed. The subtitle intrigued me, ¿Living with Losses of the Heart.¿ Released in September 2001, this book by Kari West helps fill the void in our hearts after the events of 9-11 and puts loss in perspective. It is a must read for anyone wanting to move out of dark despair and into the daylight of hope. Not all of us have been personally affected by catastrophic loss, yet if not us, we all know someone whose life has been touched by the dark side of loss and the out-of-control spiral that usually follows. West has written this book to focus on ¿¿ losses for which you were not responsible and over which you had little or no control.¿ The book is assembled into 12 sections of seven chapters, each two to three page in length. Every chapter begins and ends with a thought provoking verse or quote and each ends with a personalized prayer pause. Woven into its 256 pages are stories of real people who have struggled with life¿s lessons. The focus in on moments in our lives when we have the opportunity to reflect on pivotal, emotional, soul-searching, unavoidable, spirited, decisive, daring, elastic, courageous, glorious, nurturing, and mind-boggling moments that challenge us. Although we cannot change the challenges life throws at us, we can choose our direction and our response. By reading how others have dealt with loss, the reader is invited to reflect on how they would respond. My only criticism of this book is it¿s labeled as a ¿women¿s¿ book on grief. Many men will overlook it and so most men will miss its healing power. I read the book and was touched by how it applied to me. I want to wave it in front of men and shout, ¿Read this! We deal with loss too.¿ Whether you buy Dare to Trust, Dare to Hope Again for yourself or for a friend, this book will inspire us with hope. If you or someone you know has been touched by loss or your heart is heavy with the pangs of despair or loneliness, the question becomes, ¿Do you dare to trust and hope again?'

    For those who hurt

    When life turns into a tornado, leaving us emotionally or physically wrecked, we don't need pats on the back. What we do need is what Kari West offers in her devotional guide for those experiencing losses of the heart, Dare to Trust, Dare to Hope Again. People reeling from loss have little patience or stamina for lengthy works. But West takes her readers through twelve weeks of healing through gentle reminders of the Bible's comfort and encouragement, tips for healthy grieving, and suggestions for 'prayer pauses.' Though her personal 'tornado' was an unwanted divorce, West includes stories from people who experienced other types of losses. A helpful resource index in the back of the book will connect readers with agencies specializing in chronic illnesses, sudden deaths, death of a child, suicide, and grief support. The title of her last chapter, 'God, grant me courage to plant my hope in You,' well summarizes her desire to plant hope among those who have lost it. If you have experienced loss, this book is one you need to buy for yourself. If people you love are hurting, giving them this book will communicate your care and give them the tools to deal Biblically with their loss.

    Valuable Insight

    This book is a life changing account speaking out of someones broken hearted experiences and emerging victorious with God's help.An articulate and humble author who is as the woman at the well receiving something from the Lord and sharing it with many others, so readily.This book ministered to me personally in giving me hope for the future and better days to come.This is a most timely book to minister healing to a more than hurting world at this time.The clarity and pure wholesomeness of the authors words washes over you again and again its its comforting assurance and hopeful stance as you journey through, with her in her personal walk through painful times.I would recommend this book highly to someone who has lost hope and needs a jumpstart on life.

    You need this book!

    Loss is a fact of life, and Kari West gives us hope in the midst of our pain. Never does she offer platitudes or cliches, but rather she offers validation of the very real pain that this life offers while also showing that there is life after loss. This book is a soothing balm for everyone who has suffered loss or major disappointment. Two thumbs up!
