Words of Comfort for Times of Loss

Words of Comfort for Times of Loss

By Liz Allison and Cecil Murphey

My grandmother used to say, “Good things come in small packages.” That’s certainly true of this book. There’s a lot of wisdom packed in these pages, and the fact that it’s brief is part of the beauty of the message. If you’ve ever wondered what to say to someone who has lost a loved one, you’ll find the answer here. If you’ve felt helpless in the face of someone’s grief, this book delivers practical advice on what to say and how to offer real comfort.

Words of Comfort for Times of Loss isn’t just for those who desire to reach out to someone who has suffered a loss, either. If you’ve lost someone close to you, the experiences of authors Liz Allison and Cecil Murphey will resonate with you. With eloquence and understanding they open their hearts and share the deep pain of their own losses. The comfort they offer is real, and their words will bring hope and encouragement to all who read them.

Liz Allison was married to NASCAR driver Davey Allison until his tragic death in 1993. Widowed at 28 with two young children to raise, Liz faced the long journey of pain, loss, and grief with great faith. Committed to encouraging others, she returned to her work in TV reporting, has published eight books, and hosts a weekly radio show.

Cecil Murphey is an international speaker and bestselling author who has written more than 100 books, including the New York Times’ bestseller 90 Minutes in Heaven (with Don Piper). No stranger himself to loss and grief, Cecil has served as a pastor and hospital chaplain for many years, and through his ministry and books he has brought hope and encouragement to countless people around the world.
