  1. My name is Carolyn Schimmel & I met you at Eastside Nazareen church when your group came to sing. I told you we had lost my great grandson in July at only 10 weeks. The title of your book caught my eye & I had to buy it because that is how I feel like God has let me down. I am reading the book & you get how we feel which has helped me some because somebody actually gets how me & my family are feeling! My problem is I just cannot get past it & trust God again. I’ve believed in God my whole life & had faith & trusted He would always be there but with this loss it was the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through (& I’ve been through some rough things) but the death of a child just rocks your whole world! I will continue to read & reread your book until I too one day can look up & open my eyes to God again! I still pray & go to church but I feel like such a hypocrite at times because of the way I’m feeling. Thank you for writing this book & bringing it to our church I do believe God was trying to reach me I’m just not ready yet! Please pray for the Schimmel family that God will heal our hearts & souls & bring us fully back to Him!! God bless you & keep you!

  2. Carolyn I do remember you. My heart is broken for your loss. There are no words that would suffice to comfort you. Know that I continue to pray for you and your family. May God’s peace surround your heart as you grieve. There is no quick fix to sorrow. Give yourself time to grieve honestly. We have a patient and merciful God. His hand is over everything, which is a comfort, even though at times we do not understand why events happen as they have.

    Many of us have experienced the feeling of being forsaken by God. Isaiah 49:14 “The Lord has forsaken me, and the Lord has forgotten me.”
    Even Jesus felt abandoned by God as he cried out from the cross, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Matt. 27:46

    You are not a hypocrite for feeling this way. But remember, that God is there, waiting for you to find your way, calling to you through the fog of sorrow. He has walked this path before you and He will lead you through to the other side.

    “I, even I, am He who comforts you.” Isaiah 51:12

    When you cannot stand – fall on Jesus. Moment by moment you will get to a place of resolution. You will never be the same, but you can have peace.

    Love you dear Carolyn. I hope to see you soon.
