Reviews - What do our customers think?
the most helpful book to me that I've read on grief  Dec 22, 2006
A couple months after my daughter died, my pastor gave me the book, A Grieving Mother Shares Her Heart: Treasures in Darkness. I read it in a couple days, finding in its pages validation for the way I was grieving and how I felt. The process that Sharon Betters had gone through mirrored my own. It helped to know that I wasn't the only one who had experienced the overwhelming heartache that comes with the loss of a child.

Then I read the book again, highlighting parts that I wanted to come back to.

As Sharon quoted extensively from the journal she wrote in the first months after her son Mark died in a car accident, I watched her struggle with God and then accept her life's circumstance. Sharon embraces God's promise of eternal life for His children. She rests in the shadow of the Almighty's arms, finding treasures of hope in the darkest moments of grief.

The hymns and Scripture she includes in the book were the same passages I had already gone to repeatedly for comfort.

I am worn out from groaning;
all night long I flood my bed with weeping
and drench my couch with tears.
My eyes grow weak with sorrow;
they fail because of all my foes.
Away from me, all you who do evil,
for the Lord has heard my weeping.
The Lord has heard my cry for mercy.
~ Psalm 6:6-9

I think that anyone who has experienced a significant loss can benefit from Sharon's book. She allows grief and points the reader toward healing and comfort in the Lord.

The book is also for those who want to help and minister to people who are grieving. In a chapter titled Who's Bearing Whose Burden, Sharon writes,

The challenge of Paul in Galations 6:2, "Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ," teaches us that God expects us to not only need each other but also reflect the love of Christ by helping each other. Grief is not a pathway we should attempt to walk alone.

She addresses what she calls "echoes of mercy" which are the little things in life that God sends our way to encourage us. Such a God of grace we have. She shows us how to get through the ugly grief and live life.

 
compassionate truth  Aug 18, 2006
This book combines the validation of grief with the truth of Scripture.This needs to be read by anyone whose child has died whether recently or years ago.The book is an excellent resource for those who are friends of the parents and want to gain insight on the roller coaster of emotions that a parent continually goes through.
 
Hope in the Darkness  Jun 6, 2006
It is hard to put into a few words what this book is about. I am 23 years old and 10 years ago I lost my older brother. When I got done reading this book, I looked at it again and was in awe at how truly amazing it was that though she lost her son she could write in her journal and praise God like she did. I loved the book! There were many places that I related to and felt again the pain and the grief. But then there was also the hope. And that is what this book is all about. A mother's struggle but also a hope that beyond the darkness there is light and with that light you begin to find those treasures that God has laid out.


 
HONEST perspecitve on heartache  May 30, 2006
Using personal journal entries and exposing her personal struggle with God, the author demonstrates how people can deal with the agonizing heartaches of our lives. All through the book, the reader can relate to the questions and longings that many of us go through when faced with life-changing challenges. The honest and open writing helps ease the often lonely confusion that someone in grief experiences. Read the book and give it!
 
Must read for those grieving  May 7, 2006
Treasures in Darkness really spoke to my heart. Sharon deals in a unique way with the daily work of grieving. She guides the hurting person through Scriptures that speak to the deep emotional needs during the dark days of grief. As she leads us through traditional hymns and to unusual verses, the message of God's love rings true. She has experienced tragic loss in her own life and shares her journey through the terrible days of survival to the place where she is living victoriously again. Even through the darkness, Sharon leads you to God's promised treasures. Highly recommended for those struggling with grief.
