Abstract
 
Description
A young adult reflects eloquently on the losses we seldom mourn and the joy these changes can bring We often think of loss as a part of later life, but in truth, loss shapes us from the time we are born. In this book of story and reflection, Elisa explores the realities and redemptions of loss that are unique to a young adult. What do we grieve in our twenties? We grieve the loss of expectations, time, relationships, and opportunities. We grieve our understanding of God, as our faith develops and changes. Every decision we make -- marriage, parenthood, career, friendships -- ushers us into change as we give up what we once held so tightly so that more life might come. Ultimately we realize that loss itself can be a profound catalyst for inner healing, containing the seeds of growth and transformation. This book presents a thoughtful look at the grace and joy that come through the unique losses of young adulthood. - from Amzon
