Larry Barber is a man you should meet if you have not already done so. He made a promise to God, has been given the opportunity to fulfill it and has asked the pertinent question that so many fail, when they make a promise to God; “Examine me LORD, and try me; test my mind and my heart.” Psalms 26:2.
Discover the promise and God’s opportunity given Larry to fulfill it by reading his book.
Love Never Dies: Embracing Grief with Hope and Promise encourages the mourner to embrace grief as the normal expression of love for a person that died. Grief resides in the community of 1 Corinthians 13:7 where love is described as “bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.” This is an important book for all mourners, and their counselors, therapist, ministers, pastors, chaplains and friends to allow the grief experience to be a healing one and not a fearful one.
Larry pilots the mourner and care giver through understanding the dichotomy of grief.
While it is normal in what it expresses it is unique in how it is experienced by each individual. The mourner is liberated from the societal requirements of compliance with a standard process and set time frame in which to “deal with it and move on.” Care givers will find relief from thinking they must be the advisor to recognizing companionship is significantly more valuable to the mourner.
Larry Barber joined ChristianWorks for Children in April of 2007 as Director of GriefWorks and CounselingWorks ministries. In his work thousands of all ages have received comfort and care in navigating their own grief journey. He is the one God had prepared to fill this position to honor a promise made in prayer.
