Baker Standing in the Shadow: Help and Encouragement for Suicide Survivors

Grief counselor June Cerza Kolf is repeatedly asked for specific guidance in helping suicide survivors function and heal. Their grief is unique in that the trauma of suicide leaves them in such a devastated state that the typical coping mechanisms no longer work.

With deep sensitivity, Kolf leads readers through mourning to acceptance. She helps them realize the tragedy was out of their control, release their guilt and anger, and gain the power of prayer. Standing in the Shadow covers the heart of thirty-four topics, including depression, forgiveness, and the salvation of those who commit suicide. The gentle, honest writing provides answers, hope, and comfort for the bereaved.

This book helped our family through the loss of our son. It explains so well how he must have felt before he ended his life. It will make you cry because it touches the heart of a grieving loved one with the truth of it all. I have recommended this book to many already. So glad we found it, honest, open and healing.
