Where do you go when life as you know it is turned completely upside down? It happened to me. The life I knew and loved vanished on August 7, 2013 when my college sweetheart and husband of 33 years chose to end his life. There are not words to describe my shock and devastation. Though I was surrounded with wonderful, loving people, none of them could restore the half of me that died that day. This was a God-sized task! This is my journey through shock, grief, mourning and healing. It is the very personal and profound journey I took to ultimately discover that no matter how deep your pain…God is always there and He is enough. If you are grieving, God Is Enough will give you hope. I understand what you are going through, and I am here to share my message of hope, healing and faith.

I don't know why God did not save my husband from suicide. All I know is that He is God and He acts accordingly. I still miss my husband
very much. As much as my heart aches and as deafening as the silence is in our house, I am so thankful for the wonderful precious memories I was able to create with the love of my life.
God is Enough
While I am still on planet Earth I will trust God. The desire to trust God doesn’t erase my sadness or my fear about the future. It is a decision I have to make each and every day. It does not come naturally and often is very hard. Will I trust God even as my life feels shortened by sadness? Will I surrender my future into the loving hands of God?
