  • A Creative Healing Path Through Grief.   “All told, probably more women have lost a child from this world than haven’t,” (Barbara Kingsolver, p. 81 in Empty Arms Journal). Yet thousands of would-be mothers more often than not suffer silently, alone. Pam Vredevelt invites those who have lived through pregnancy loss to walk with her on a healing path through grief using a creative journaling experience. This unique book offers five daily practical steps that address healing for the whole person--body, soul, spirit, heart and brain, with space to respond to prompts by writing or drawing. As a professional counselor, Pam has expertise in the psychological methods of dealing with loss; as a mother, she has personally been there, having lost two children; as a Christian she has strong personal faith and relies on prayer and the comfort of Scripture. Her compassion, wisdom, and hope come through in her kind, beautifully crafted words of healing.

  • Thank You For This... My wife has had four miscarriages. We wish this had been available when she was dealing with this. Her faith carried her through, but this journal could help women walk through the emotional process of dealing with the loss of a child. Journaling is a great idea to have something to look back on to see how far God has brought you. Journaling shows your journey. This is a beautiful idea! Thank you for writing it!

  • An Essential Companion Through Grief.   Having had the privilege of working closely with Pam while she wrote this powerful volume, I know how deeply she understands the grief of losing a child and the process necessary for healing heartache. "Grief tends to hinder our ability to sense God’s presence," she writes. "We wonder where He is, and why He didn’t show up to write a different ending to our story." Surely this is a universal response to such a devastating loss, and Pam has been there. Both her book, Empty Arms, and now this companion journal are essential companions through the complexities of the grieving process. With deep compassion and hard-won wisdom, she walks alongside those whose hearts have been crushed and offers insight, comfort, and hope.
