Heartbreak to Joy

 

CAN A GRIEVING HEART FIND LOVE AGAIN?
This is the true story of a woman, twice widowed, who finds fulfilling love again. After grappling with loneliness, Shirley entered a hasty courtship, and is crushed by a broken engagement just before the wedding. One again, Shirley’s dreams have been destroyed. In her grief, she fully surrenders to God, faces her challenges and learns to trust Him more deeply.
CAN GOD TURN HER UNTHINKABLE LOSSES INTO JOY?

Beyond Second Chances: Heartbreak to Joy continues the chronicle of God’s faithfulness in Shirley’s life begun in her book, Second Chances, at Life and Love, With Hope. Her life adventures beyond loss are also shared, including early marriage struggles, the heartbreak of a stillborn child, the challenges of extreme outdoor adventures, and surviving a near-death experience in a sports car. Through these and other traumatic experiences, Shirley learned to recognize God’s ever-present nearness and open her heart to a new love story. She says, “We can trust in the God who loves us more than we love each other or ourselves.”

“This story of two true loves, related with honesty and telling detail, chronicles the writer’s journey through the highs and lows of normal family relationships (thankfully there are none of the ubiquitous stories of abuse in this memoir) in the loss of those loves, always with her sense of God’s loving presence. The old phrase, ‘grace abounding,’ describes what she learned through her ordeal.”

Second Chances

At Life and Love, with Hope

 

When Shirley and Bill set out on a dream trip in the beautiful northwest wilderness to celebrate their 40th anniversary, what develops is a nightmare that has no end. Mysterious pangs turn into a vicious virus that makes its way into Bill’s body. Shirley finds comfort through her Savior during the six months of Bill’s illness—an illness which eventually takes his life.

After a time, Shirley’s heart aches for companionship. Little does she know that living a few miles from her home, a widower mourns the loss of his wife of 32 years. They meet and fall hopelessly in love, and their love takes them on a two-year journey of joy and adventure until once again overwhelming heartbreak rocks Shirley’s world. This is a story of faith and courage to strengthen your own soul.

“I just finished reading Second Chances. Thank you for sharing your story with authenticity and candor. One of the words that kept coming to my mind was bravery. You are a brave, brave woman. But I know where that comes from–you trust in a powerful God. I know there have been many times that you haven’t felt brave and that you must have wanted to crumple under the weight of your trials. But your trust in our kind Father has been your bedrock. Truly God gives us grace to help in the time of need, and you have certainly been an amazing example of that.”

– Diane Stevens
