EL DORADO SPRINGS, Mo., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A loss of a child is a life-changing trauma that many may not be able to bear or even move on from. For J. Brent Bland, it inspired him to write a book and share his experience to all, so others may find hope and inspiration as well. Everyone will feel the emotions behind his tragedy in his book, Spiritually Speaking. There's courage through suffering – and this is what the author hopes readers will appreciate as they read through this book.
Inspired to write this book, following a terrible experience in life, the author reveals how the loss of his 17-year-old child transformed into positive energy, destined to help and encourage countless other families. A Divine God is the only true Source, and this writing is evidence of that.
This book was only just a lifelong dream. Strangely enough, it had taken this tragedy to spurn him to write. Through this experience, he discovered, and so will everyone else, that fears from a nearly unbearable loss turned into words can enable everyone to see the real focus and meaning of life.
This book gives more than hope; it gives proof and assurance that a Divine Creator helps and heals in ways that people cannot fathom if they only give God the chance.
