"Jaca's precious memories of her walk through the valley of the shadow of death with her Lawton will truly bless and inspire."-Patricia Cameron, beloved friend and sister widow.
After her husband, Lawton, is diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer, author Jaca DePriest realizes a difficult path lies ahead-widowhood. Together, they face his grim diagnosis with hope and courage, knowing it is God's plan for their life. Throughout Lawton's illness, Jaca sees their path lit with the brilliance of Jesus's love, the compassion of His heart, the abundance of His mercies, and the gift of knowing her husband will spend eternity in heaven. But most mercifully, Jesus gives them time to say goodbye.
In Blessed and Beyond: A Passage into Widowhood, Jaca compassionately describes the heart of a widow through the days, weeks, months, and years during Lawton's illness and following his death. With touching prose, she writes of how shattered hearts can once again find peace and healing through their grief. Above all, Jaca encourages you to embrace your loved ones today-do not squander your time with them here on Earth.
If you have recently embarked on the lonely walk of widowhood, let Blessed and Beyond help you navigate the difficult path ahead.
