New title shows how God used her grief to turn tragedy into a positive.

Grief is something that people in every walk of life experience, even though every story may not be the same. In Jodi Flom's experience, God used her grief to turn a tragedy into something positive. After the loss of her 16-year-old son, Travis "Jak" Flom, due to a tragic snowmobile accident, she witnessed how his loss impacted both his family and his community, bringing everyone to an understanding that God has created us to be overcomers and has given us the power to have victory even over death. Chronicled in her new release from Xulon Press, Jak's Legacy (paperback), this story is a true account of God's love and how the strength of a mother's love can't compare to the love our Heavenly Father has for His children.

Says Flom, "Even in times of great trial, God sends His Holy Spirit to comfort and guide us through our struggles, and [He] promises He'll always be by our side and never leave us. When we don't feel we have the strength to go on, God is always there to carefully carry us through even the lowest moments in a parent's life."

While working as an EMT, Flom witnessed many people who suffered from similar situations, and after her family's loss she has been able to comfort others and be an example of God's love. She hopes Jak's Legacy will similarly inspire others to realize that their suffering in this life cannot compare to the glory that will be revealed to them (Romans 8:18).

Jodi Flom currently resides in Thief River Falls, Minnesota.
