When Rebecca Tervo awoke on January 29, 2012 it seemed like just another lazy Sunday morning. What she didn’t realize was that her life and the life of her family had already been changed forever. Her 17 year old son, Trevor, was already dead of suicide in an adjacent room, she just didn’t know it yet.
The shock of another teen suicide was felt throughout the community and the schools.
This book tells how Rebecca reacted to the event that changed everything for her and her family. It was uncharted territory for her, her husband, the community and the school.
It describes the unrelenting and nearly unbearable grief and loss. There were so many questions and so few answers. Why would Trevor do this? Where were the signs that Trevor had been depressed? Did someone else know something about Trevor’s pain? Why would such a bright young man choose this?
How would she go on? She had so many unanswered questions. How would she care for her other three children and her grief-stricken husband? How would her 20+ year marriage survive the biggest trial it had ever faced?
These issues and the grieving process she lived through are all laid out with raw honesty, but are told as if she was sitting with you on the front porch with a cup of coffee.
After experiencing all the stages of grief and despite everything, Rebecca finds a way to dig her way back to life.She chooses to live a life with more happiness and purpose than ever before. This book tells how she uses various support groups and therapy sessions to cope, but ultimately does some major work on her own to enter life again.
Not as the same woman, but a new, more conscious and mindful mother, wife and friend. She depicts how her personal transformation helped her make the decision to leave her accounting career, lose weight, do major decluttering and forgiveness work, and set some big goals for her life.
This book shows how one woman turned her grief and the lessons she learned from it to a purposeful, happy life that she is now living on her terms.
Her hope is that anyone facing major obstacles in their life would find inspiration through her story.
Like millions of other parents, Dr. Kelly Barbour-Conerty was living a normal life, spending time with her daughters, watching them grow up and making plans for their futures. Then, in the blink of an eye, along with the screeching of tires and the crushing of a metal car frame, that normality came to a sudden and horrific end. Her 16 year-old daughter, Lexi, was killed in a car crash only 1 ½ miles from home on the way to a meeting of her church youth group, and Kelly instantly became the newest member of The Grieving Parents Club.
For years, Kelly has lived and struggled with a new normal-one that doesn’t include Lexi. Like so many other grieving parents before her, she has grappled with the big questions–Why did this happen to my child? How can I go on without my child? and the small ones-Do I hang a Christmas stocking? What should I do with her things?
Kelly knows first-hand of the darkness that comes with the grief after the death of a child, but with the help of other members of the Club who felt her pain and kindly offered advice at every stage of the grieving process, she has learned how to survive, cope and heal, and how to bring a ray of light, hope, and joy to other grieving parents.
If you are a grieving parent, or know one, Kelly’s new Amazon #1 bestseller, The Grieving Parents Club: How to Survive, Cope and Heal after the Death of a Child, can help. By sharing her journey through this hardest grief and the insights that she has gained over the years from other members of the Club, Kelly hopes to let other grieving parents know that they are never alone in their journey.
No matter what, members of the Grieving Parents Club will be there to help each other.
One thing has saved her: the heaven-sent hope found only in Christ.

You don’t always need a miracle to find light in times of darkness
Heartbreak is impartial. Tragedies–global and personal–strike every day. Destruction, anxiety, and catastrophe have become our daily companions.
Over his long career, Robert Wise has been on the front lines of disaster. From the Oklahoma City bombing to 9/11’s ground zero to the bedsides of lost loved ones, Wise has stood on tragic ground and ministered to those who have lost seemingly everything. Each of those hurting people asked the same questions: Why do the innocent suffer? Why doesn’t God deliver the light of miracles in the darkest times?
In the midst of his own questioning, Wise has discovered some surprising and encouraging answers. In this book, he shares those lessons, encouraging all those who struggle. You’ll learn some unexpected positive benefits of pain and suffering, and see how God is always behind the scenes working for the ultimate good–even when you can’t see or imagine how.
“With transparency and compassion, Wise delivers numerous illustrations of God’s incredible timing along with His grace, His mercy, and the unbelievable healing power of His love.”
–S. Bryan Hickox, Emmy-winning television producer
