Consumer Critique: Earth and Sky

Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 

Guy Delcambre was living a normal life with his wife, Marianne, and three young daughters when Marianne passed away suddenly. In "Earth and Sky," Delcambre chronicles his journey through grief to find God's grace sufficient. He also shares the difficult conversations he had with his daughters and things he did to help them cope with the loss of their mother. Furthermore, Delcambre gives encouragement and practical advice to grieving readers, such as detailing how to use a grief journal.

I have never had to experience the loss of a spouse. But I still found this book helpful. We recently had two family friends pass away, and some of the ways that Guy shared conversations he had with his daughters helped me share with my own daughters about how people can die even if they're young, and what happens to them afterwards.

The book does have an element of sadness, but is overall positive and hopeful, a good way to read about grief from someone who has been there - especially someone who is finding themselves in the difficult position of grieving with a family.
