After the Crash | Living Fully after Loss in Light of Eternity

Jesus told us in John 16:33 that no one escapes pain in this life. “In this world you will have trouble but be of good cheer, because I have overcome!”

How do you go on when three of your children are instantly taken from this world? Do you question the goodness of God? Does your loss hurl you into a life of isolation and loneliness? In After the Crash, Debbie Mayer will answer those questions as she describes the events and emotions surrounding the tragedy that completely changed her world when her three daughters were killed in a car accident just two days before her son’s wedding they were to be bridesmaids in. 

She will take you on a journey from the temporal realm into the eternal, enabling you to view life and circumstances from an eternal perspective. The raw and revealing accounts of Debbie’s story will present you with a mirror to your own heart that will invite you to embrace your own story and relationship with a God who knows and loves you intimately.

You will be inspired to move forward on your own journey as you read how Debbie learned to embrace life with renewed hope. Read how Debbie learned to walk out her Christianity as God walked with her through her pain, and see that it is possible to live beyond yourself, your circumstances, and your feelings. Most importantly, you will learn that trusting God is more important than understanding everything that happens. 

Debbie found that there is no safer place to be than in the presence of a God that not only knows and loves us, but offers life eternal – beginning right here on earth.  You will be delighted to discover that there is no sorrow, loss, or disappointment that can separate you from the wonderful love of God.

I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live,
even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.”
John 11:25
“Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they shall see God.”
Matthew 5:8
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 2:3-5
