Even in Darkness: A Guided Grief Journal and Daily Devotional
to Uncover Raw Authenticity During Grief, Loss and Depression
Rest in the embrace of God’s love. Even in Darkness is a grief journal, created to share the light during the darkest moments of suffering. Written by a Christ follower and grieving mother, Morgan Cheek refocuses her pain and suffering using a profound knowledge of the Bible, and inspires Christians to grip onto their faith during difficult times.
Throughout her own struggles, Cheek manages to hold onto faith and is continually comforted by God’s grace. As she documents her deepest thoughts and rawest conversations with God, the feelings that she shares are real, honest and unquestionably inspiring.
Watercolor Floral Hymn Print: “No Tears In Heaven”
I created this watercolor art piece as I was grieving my miscarriage. I dove into the avenue of creating things every day as it became a therapeutic way to process what I was going through in that time. This hymn is based off the passage in Revelation 21:4-5, “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.””
We seek to provide unwavering care to women who have experienced the loss of a baby prior to 20 weeks of gestation. By gifting flowers, as well as creating a community of support, our hope is to help grieving mothers feel seen and assured their babies are remembered and loved.
Birth Flower Remembrance Print
These miscarriage keepsakes are such a special gift idea for any parents who have had a recent pregnancy loss. This print comes with your child's birth flower month as the background photo. (Use code WILDE10 for 10% off birth prints & memorials)
