How to Deal with the Pain of Grief and Let God Take Over

Losing someone can bring immense pain. Tune into today’s episode with Guy Powell and learn how to cope through this difficult time and lean on God’s love so grief doesn’t take over you completely.

Guy R. Powell is a marketer, part-time historian, Christian and author of the new historical fiction, The Only Witness: An History on the Shroud of Turin.

The Shroud of Turin is the most valuable yet controversial relic with theories and science proving and disproving its validity as the true burial cloth of Jesus Christ. Powell builds a compelling history of the burial cloth beginning with its witness to the most significant event in human history, the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Powell’s history describes how the Shroud travels from Golgotha in Jerusalem to Edessa, Constantinople, France and finally Turin, Italy. If you are interested in a Christian story intertwined with a possible history of the Shroud then this story, The Only Witness will be of special interest to you.

What is your favorite scripture / lifetime verse (and why)

There are so many. Certainly, the very familiar, John 3:16 or Psalms 23, but I think the one most important is Micah 6:8.

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

The other verse that is an underlying theme of my book, is John 20:29.

Then Jesus told him,
‘Because you have seen me, you have believed;
blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.’

Meet the Publisher

I've been around Christian publishing since 1987 when I helped our ministry self-publish an important resource for Vietnam veterans and their families. That book went on to be picked up by a royalty publisher and has since sold over 250,000 copies with a million in print.

I'm glad you're here…stop by often and take advantage of all the information we make available.
