God Really IS There When it Hurts - How does one cope when the worst of tragedies hits? Melody Richards lost her 20-year old daughter in a fatal car accident. Melody's book, Collision with Joy, is the gripping story of her journey through grief after losing her daughter, Danielle. It is an intricately crafted blend of scripture, helpful information on grief, and deeply inspiring fictional heavenly scenes, alternating between her personal reflections on the difficult questions of loss and fictional scenes depicting Danielle’s dramatic and beautiful welcome to her eternal home. This enables the reader to grasp an eternal perspective, which transforms their outlook on suffering by offering them hope, not just in the future, but right here and now.

When suffering enters our life, it is critical to have a vision that keeps us from being swept away by despair. Many people suffering loss experience hopelessness when they tell themselves that this life we have here is all there is.  This book vividly shows that this is not our final destination, and brings the reader to the point where they can truly grasp an eternal perspective.

Collision With Joy is a book that will appeal to anyone who longs to see a practical reason why the anticipation of what awaits believers in Heaven can be such an amazing comfort here on earth.  It is a refreshing and faith-filled picture of hope.
