Happy Release Day! Dancing through the Storms 365 Day Devotional-Surviving the Loss of a Child

For my beautiful, butterfly girl Ashley Michelle
September 11th, 1985- May 27th, 2013
I love and miss you more with each beat of time.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Psalm 46:7 NIV

The loss of a child is destructive to a parent’s heart and soul. My daughter Ashley Michelle was twenty-seven when she died from AIDS related complications on May 27th, 2013. In my mind, I knew she was dying, but my heart refused to believe the reality. I did not want to turn loose of her beautiful soul. My faith was shattered. Although her suffering was horrendous, my daughter’s faith in the Lord never quelled.

Since her death, I have shared my personal story with other grieving parents. In writing this book, I wanted to take on a different perspective. We all grieve differently after losing a child. However, the only thing that is constant in our grief is how we cope with the emptiness we feel on a daily basis.

Dancing through the Storms 365 Day Devotional: Surviving the Loss of a Child takes you on a daily journey of healing and hope.

How do you feel today? At the end of each day, I want you to take out your journal and write your feelings down. It’s okay to feel angry, sad, or depressed, but it’s not okay to keep those negative feelings bottled up inside your soul.

My prayer for you, as it is with me; is that the Lord heals your broken soul and revives  your hurting heart.




Writing the book has been a long and very difficult journey. It has taken me over a year to complete the devotional. Writing words of encouragement for other grieving parents helped me heal and gave me hope. The Lord was my complete guidance and strength through my daily struggles with finding the right words to share with you.

I pray that the words in the devotional will help you heal and give you hope.You are in my prayers.
