About the Book

For as long as Kathy Schuster can remember, she’s wanted to be a mom. God fulfilled her dream as she and her husband raised their family of two daughters and two sons. The children meant the world to her, and nothing brought her more joy than witnessing their lives as they grew up. But Schuster’s life changed drastically when their oldest child was suddenly killed by a drunk driver. Nothing prepared her for the paralyzing devastation she felt as she grieved the loss of her daughter.

In She Was ... God’s Joyous Messenger, Schuster shares her personal story of growing through grief and coming out on the other side as a whole person. She testifies to God carrying her through agonizing days and sleepless nights as she struggled to find hope, peace, and joy in her life again.

She Was ... God’s Joyous Messenger offers unique but universal insight for those experiencing the heartache of loss, especially that of a child. She hopes her story will offer the encouragement and comfort a grieving parent needs as well as give understanding to those who find themselves as part of the support system to someone experiencing bereavement.
