KANSAS CITY, Kan. (PRWEB) April 24, 2017
Author and pastor Jonathan Foster has released his sophomore book, “Death, Hope and the Laughter of God,” which walks readers through grief and loss. The book uses examples of Foster’s coping methods he used to grieve the death of his daughter, Quincy.
In the book, Foster explains the central message of going through loss, not around it. Readers will learn how to tackle their loss head-on, and develop the tools to live with it. Foster’s paradigm states loss is not something people can fix, but something they must learn to carry with them throughout their lives.
One major theme in the book is the idea that God does not abandon people through hard times. Conversely, he finds them through the worst. “I don't think anyone really knows why bad things happen to anyone,” said Foster. “I think the purpose might be that in darkness, we realize God is searching for us, and that's what he has always done.”
To honor Quincy’s goal to become a medical missionary in Haiti, Foster founded LQVE, a nonprofit organization focused on building structures in Haiti, and providing healthcare to impoverished Haitians. “My friend gave me a t-shirt with the name LQVE on it,” Foster said. “As soon as I realized its meaning, Q for Quincy, I knew I had to do something with this name.”
“Death, Hope and the Laughter of God,” along with Foster’s personal story, will touch and challenge anyone who has experienced loss in any way.
