The grief of miscarriage, stillbirth, and newborn loss is often misunderstood and frequently ignored. In Little One Lost: Living with Early Infant Loss, Glenda Mathes writes of her own experience and shows from Scripture that these littlest ones are not really lost. Several couples share personal stories about a variety of losses, including the pain of infertility. Additional sections deal with acknowledging loss, finding comfort, grieving with hope, and healing pain. Steeped in biblical wisdom, this book will resonate with mourning parents and assist anyone who longs to comfort those who grieve a little one lost.
Glenda Mathes is an author, editor, and poet who regularly writes for Christian Renewal magazine. She lives in Iowa with her husband David. Their greatest joy is witnessing their children and grandchildren walking in the truth.
"Helpful for those struggling with the questions that occur and reoccur following infant loss, and hopeful because of Christ, Who loses no little ones.”
