Denise Gordon

“I want readers to become recipients of my insight, how I was and am able to press through tears born from adversity and laughter that often comes from reflection."

Within the pages of Denise Bristol-Gordon’s new book, In Pursuit of Purpose: Lessons Learned While Mother Was Away, ($14.99, paperback, 9781545617625; $7.99, e-book, 9781545619483) readers will follow the author’s journey coming to terms with the overwhelming grief of losing her mother as a young child. Forever coloring her view of the world, she had to bury her mother on Christmas Day while still bewildered with loss.

Written with raw honesty, the author crafts an intimate look at how she learned to lean on God for strength. God ordered her steps toward wholeness, helping her grow into her walk with the Savior in loving obedience.

“I want readers to become recipients of my insight, how I was and am able to press through tears born from adversity and laughter that often comes from reflection,” states the author. “Dealing with loss early in life inadvertently prepared me to present life’s lessons with empathy and compassion. In today’s society, we are about instant gratification and resolution, but it is not so with those who of us who have suffered loss. The book will empower readers to navigate the challenges on the journey called life.”
