Are you wondering how my book is going?
Several months ago I told you I was writing a book about my journey of surviving the death of a child. My son, David Glasser, was a Phoenix Police Officer who was killed in the line of duty on May 18, 2016.
The book is about halfway edited and on target to be published sometime in March. I’m excited to see what God is going to do with it.
The working title (it may change) is “Picking Up the Pieces – the story of one parent finding hope in their worst nightmare. Here is my picture for the back of the cover. I’m glad I got the picture taking done – it’s definitely not my favorite part of this process.
I have two main prayers for this book. First, that it will help parents who have lost a child find hope and not feel so alone. Second, that God will draw people closer to him through my story.
The fact that I have been blogging about this journey for the last 6 years has been a big help in remembering the wide spectrum of feelings I have experienced. I wasn’t prepared, however, for the overwhelming emotions that came from writing it all down. There are many parts of my story that I never included in a blog. Blogs are more of a ‘thought’, so some of my experiences never fit.
Losing a child is the worst thing that can happen to a parent. I never imagined that this would happen to me. I realized early on that God was writing this story in my life and someday I would be putting it in a book.
He gave me a purpose for the pain.
