Subtitle: A Journey of Healing Through Grief and Loss
Champion of Hope describes a journey of healing through grief and loss. It is about choosing the light of hope and forgiveness over the darkness of despair and bitterness. In the wake of grieving the death of a mother who suffered from heart disease; a husband who fought and lost the battle with cancer; the tragic diagnosis of a son’s schizophrenia; and a father who struggled with a bondage to alcohol leading him to suicide, seeds of faith were being planted in Connie’s “field of heartache.”
I invite you to open up this book and walk step by step with Connie through her tundra and through her triumph. With this book in one hand, open up the other for Christ Jesus Himself to hold onto while you experience the life-giving hope He is able to provide.
“Little did I know that at the tender age of eight, my mother would suddenly be taken from me in death, while a grade three teacher named Miss Dufour (now Connie Hale-Duncan) would offer a heart filled with Jesus and a hand filled with hope to that little red-haired student of hers, who forty years later writes this in earnest. Perhaps I was the first that was to receive the gift in Connie’s grief, for in losing her own father to death at the same age, she saw herself in me as a little girl. I thank God that she was given the strength and will to streamline her suffering into empathy and compassion for the hurting. This was the beginning of choosing hope over despair.
“Champion of Hope is accessible to those who do not yet know the unseen tangible love of Christ and profoundly accessible to those who already do. It is a book that celebrates a God who comes to save, deliver, and transform us—He turns victims into victors.”
