New book encourages, enlightens, and entertains those who have lost a loved one

There is nothing new under the sun!

Some people say that one doesn’t really get over losing a loved one. He or she just learns to cope, but the heartache will always be there. Whether or not this ache will become lesser, only time can tell… Author O. Chuck Olsen reaches out to those who have experienced loss, offering comfort and hope through his book, Good Grief God!

When the author lost his wife in 2002, the loss was so unbearable that he enrolled in a bereavement program. He could not imagine life without his better half. Taking small steps at a time, the healing process began and he learned to face each day with hope. He has written Good Grief God! not only to ease his pain but also for others in the same boat.

Losing a loved one is never easy. Still, Olsen believes that God brings good things out of something bad, that there is a rainbow of hope after the storm of tears. When a loved one dies, people are too grieved to understand that God works all things together for good for those who love Him. Even in the case of a loved one, God is able to turn things around to make suffering more bearable.

Filled with insight, humor and experience, Good Grief God! is Olsen’s way to encourage, enlighten, and entertain those who have lost a loved one. Death is not the end but the beginning of a new chapter in life that one must face with God by his side. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
