Houston, TX – WEBWIRE

In her deeply moving book, “Finding JOY in the Midst of Grief: Continuing in God’s Loving Grip Through Loss of a Loved One,” author Kay E. Thomson invites readers on a heartfelt journey through the raw and often overwhelming emotions of grief. This poignant memoir chronicles her journey through the harrowing experiences of her husband’s battle with Parkinson’s disease, compounded by a later diagnosis of Stage 4 Colon and Pancreatic Cancer. Thomson provides a ray of light and a monument to the continuing strength of religion by drawing on her own experience of losing her spouse of 44 years.

More than just a story, “Finding JOY in the Midst of Grief” is a lifesaver for anybody attempting to wade through the turbulent waters of bereavement. Because of Thomson’s persistent confidence in God’s love, her story is both intimate and universal, conveying the particular anguish of losing a loved one while also providing comfort and wisdom. She sheds light on how to find happiness and meaning in the midst of grief as she describes the agonizing process of coming to terms with her husband’s passing. It is evidence of steadfast faith and fortitude. Thomson invites readers to walk alongside her through the rollercoaster of emotions that accompany prolonged illness and inevitable loss. It is a true story of how she and her husband, Dale, navigated these treacherous waters with the steadfast belief that God had a greater plan for them, despite not receiving the answers they desperately sought for Dale’s healing.

Reflecting on her motivations, Thomson shares: “My husband was ill with Parkinson’s disease, and seven years following the diagnosis, the doctor discovered he also had Stage 4 Colon and Pancreatic Cancer. The book is a true story of how we dealt with all that God had left at our door. It is a journey with us through the ups and downs of over several years of illness. It shares our walk with God and how we learned to trust Him even though we were not getting the answers we wanted for Dale’s healing.”

At its core, “Finding JOY in the Midst of Grief” is about faith and trust in God through His Son, Jesus. Thomson emphasizes, “The answers are not always what we want in life, but God sees the bigger plan. I pray that others will find the peace and comfort that I found in my journey through dark, lonely days and nights, back into happiness when I thought I would not have any happiness again. God has the plan, and our job is to trust and follow Him because He knows the end game.”

The book takes readers along twists and turns, leading them through the tunnel of grief that Thomson herself walked. She shares her struggles, her moments of doubt, and her ultimate realization that God’s plan, though often mysterious, is always rooted in love and protection. Through her story, readers will discover that God’s grace is a constant companion, offering strength and comfort even in the darkest times. Thomson’s message is clear: while grief is an inevitable part of life, it does not signify the end of joy. Instead, it opens us up to new possibilities and deeper understandings of God’s will. Readers will learn that the will of God will never take them where the grace of God will not protect them, providing a powerful reminder of the divine support that is always available.

In today’s world, where grief and loss are universal experiences, “Finding JOY in the Midst of Grief” serves as a reminder that faith can be a powerful source of strength. “Life and death are in every society, and with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, we can find peace and comfort in the worst of situations that life can throw at us. We can find ways to Rejoice by Choice,” Thomson explains.

Thomson’s goal in sharing her story is to reach others who may be struggling with their own traumas. “My desire is to help others who struggle with traumas in their life, find the peace and comfort that only God can give,” she says. She hopes to provide comfort and a glimmer of hope to anyone going through similar struggles with the publication of this book.
