PARKER – Author Jada D. L. Hodgson knows how crippling grief and loss can be. In “A View from the Fog” (published by WestBow Press), she shares her journey of healing, inspiring readers to discover a deeper understanding of grief and moving closer to God’s grace and loving embrace.

This book recalls one woman’s struggle to accept the loss of both parents in a single automobile accident. It is an account of grief and hope, darkness and light, love and loss. As a lay minister raised in the United Methodist Church, Hodgson still felt like a three-time orphan. Her mother and father are dead and God has gone silent. With prayer support and loving friends, Hodgson heard God speak again, “I love you and will never leave you.”

“I share some pretty dark moments in the process of grief. Yet, there were also moments of joy. Each grief experience is unique,” Hodgson says. “By sharing my experience, I hope to invite others to take their time and spend time with their own experience.”

An excerpt from the book:

If I have anything to offer you, it is the assurance that there is hope. There is tomorrow. Prayerful friends and a loving God will carry you. You are not alone even in those moments when it feels most that you are. Life does go on. And life will be good again.
