Psalms for the Grieving Heart.

Amy at Raising Arrows is offering her e-book Psalms for the Grieving Heart, "a 30-Day devotional for those who grieve," for free! If you are struggling with grief over the loss of a loved one, I encourage you to download this book.

Amy lost her 7-month old daughter, Emily Sofia, in 2008. Emily's story is absolutely heartbreaking, and as a mom of a little girl, I cried for a good while afterward (my husband can attest) and then praised God for my healthy baby.

“I would not move forward if it meant leaving Emmy behind. I don’t know how anyone can pretend a child never existed, take down their pictures, remove their things…No, I do not leave her behind and “move on”, I move forward, with all 5 children–one running a bit ahead…just out of sight.”

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4

I hope Amy's blog encourages you as much as it did me.

Thanks, Money Saving Mom!
