Waverly, Iowa, USA – WEBWIRE

Lyneva Hook’s story will do more than just inspire people of her resilience and positivity; she will bring more people to understand about losing an adult child.  

What is it like to lose an adult child? How does one keep going after losing both adult children? The book “Why I Was Chosen to Be the Mother of Angels” (Balboa Press; 2018) by Lyneva Hook tells of a mother’s pain and struggles after losing her son and her daughter and the faith that helped her heal from grief and find her new calling as a “mother of angels.”

The Minnesota born and current Iowa resident lost her son Andy, then 19, to an auto accident in 2001 and her daughter Christy, then 35, to an aggressive form of cancer. A double tragedy it was for Lyneva but beneath it is a story of her incredible faith and trust in God who bestowed on her the courage and willpower to get through every stage of her grief.

Some time after losing both Andy and Christy, Lyneva came to a beautiful realization. “The whole while since losing Andy, I saw God every day, in one way or another. I feel like it was a learning time for me to help me realize I never lost them but gained two angels. They continuously let me know they’re around. They show me signs all the time, which can be what you least expect from what I have learned. They are there whenever I call on them and never any farther away than a whisper. They are comforting and funny at times. I love when I hear them laugh, it is one of the things I miss the most. Our relationship is very different from what it used to be, but it’s very pure, honorable and all truth and heart. Who could ask for more than that.

“What I learned is, everybody has the opportunity to have what I have. It is a gift from God.  By never giving up, always believing and asking them to cradle me when the pain was too much was I able get through the unthinkable. I now live my life and honor them every chance I get which is usually through something every day. As they are an everyday part of my life and always will be. My journey now continues in helping people to realize they too have the same gift from God.”
