My sister Holly and I wrote a book called, Dancing On My Ashes: learning to love the One who gives and takes away. (You can go here to read more about what the book’s about: https://dancingonmyashes.com/about/ ) It is our story and a compilation of lessons learned through our desperate search for truth after the loss of our husbands. For me personally, I found something more precious than life itself, I found Him.
“There is a time for everything…a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance.
Ecclesiastes 3:1,4 (NIV)
About the book:
It was only supposed to take a few hours to scout out a good canoe route. But when James Brill and Scott Nesbitt weren’t back in time for dinner, their wives, sisters Heather and Holly Wall, started to pray. They didn’t stop—even when the bodies of their beloved husbands turned up a day later in the rushing river. Dancing On My Ashes is a true story that details the painful passage of two young widows out of the ashes and into their dance with the Almighty God.
When tragedy strikes, we often discover that we have been living with a false sense of who God is and begin asking questions like, Can Christ heal my wounds? Can He really take the ashes of my life and make them a source of beauty? Dancing On My Ashes is a call to stop living wounded and accept the presence of God’s hand in our lives. Are you ready to dance?”
