Alex Davisabout this book: This is the story of my struggle, after losing my third child. Who would have thought that something like this could happen. The only thing I could do, as a former pastor and still a believer in the power of God, was to seclude myself and spend some quality time on my knees talking to God. This book needed to be written. God helped me to learn how to overcome the grief and I walked out of seclusion a changed man. I have to share this because so many other people are hurting the way I was and what I learned and put in this book can help them to overcome the grief and pain of loss.
Although it sounds up front like this book would be depressing, its actually very inspiring. The beginning of the book talks about the children and their lives and the latter part is teaching on the things I learned while spending time in seclusion, just me and God. I almost used a different title because tragedy didn't seem like a strong enough word. I wanted to call it a disaster. Losing one child is a tragedy, losing a second child is a greater tragedy, but losing a third child is a disaster. I was, however, convinced by my daughter that the title was fine the way it was. I believe this book was written to help people, who are suffering loss, to overcome and will help others, who are not suffering loss to get an understanding of how we feel. There's nothing worse than someone coming up and saying, "I know how you feel" and you know that's not true. I believe the book will help the reader to feel the hope that it brings and they'll be able to share this with others.
