Goodman produces well written, ‘roadmap’ to overcoming grief with God’s peace

In the Cleft: Joy Comes In the Mourning

'‘In the Cleft’ will offer hope to grieving souls, especially those who are walking through the painful process of a terminal diagnosis.'

Dana Goodman’s new book, In the Cleft: Joy Comes In the Mourning, ($16.49, paperback, 9781498408745; $8.99, e-book, 9781498408752) is a powerful, poignant, and utterly heart wrenching true story surrounding sickness, grief, and the inevitable mourning process. Dana Goodman shares, in the midst of devastating circumstances, her hope and the unrelenting trust that she placed in the Lord’s hands. At times, she admitted to being disappointed in God, due to the intensity of pain endured by all parties—who could blame her? However, she never stopped trusting, hoping, and walking by faith; her reward is in the supernatural peace of God, and in discovering Him to be the true Healer that the Scriptures promise Him to (still) be.

“We live in a society that expects us to get over heart pain quickly rather than lean into it, and voice it,” states the author. “When others voice their inner struggle, it becomes a road map for others going through their own painful journeys. ‘In the Cleft’ will offer hope to grieving souls, especially those who are walking through the painful process of a terminal diagnosis.”

Dana Goodman has bravely walked through the death of her first husband to cancer, and later, the simultaneous diagnosis of her son, second husband, and mother-in-law. Her son and mother-in-law both died. When asked about her credentials in authoring In the Cleft, Dana Goodman responded, “I suppose I am an expert on grief. Also, I have a Master's in counseling, a teaching degree and a B.A in English literature.” The author sincerely hopes to minister to the grieving through her book.
