JEROME, Idaho (PRWEB) June 14, 2013
In her new book “A Mother’s Right to Cry” (published by iUniverse) author Alice McLaughlin takes readers through the journey of her life, sharing both tragedies and triumphs, and teaching them that even the most staggering events can be overcome with God’s comfort.
Her book, McLaughlin says, is about “losses in life and God being there to comfort and sustain us. Sending people to comfort and minister to us through great sorrow.”
An excerpt from “A Mother’s Right to Cry”:
“Soon, James was again without a job. He assured me this was temporary. I knew James was deeply troubled, and I began praying as I never had before. Although I had no idea at the time, God was preparing me for upcoming sorrows.
During our Wednesday night services, my pastor preached a series of sermons titled ‘God’s Grace Is Sufficient.’ The message was that God’s grace encompasses all situations. Those sermons seemed like a pipeline between the pastor and me. I absorbed every word.”
“No matter what has happened God doesn’t leave us to go through this by ourselves,” McLaughlin says. “He places people in our lives along the way to help carry the load and pray for us.”
