DALLAS, June 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Losing a father is difficult enough on most ordinary days, but with Father's Day approaching, the absence is intensified for many. Rebecca Parker, author of "Remembering My Father: A Journal of Precious Memories for the Healing of the Heart" (Brown Books Publishing Group), understands this more than most and offers a tangible way for grieving families to begin the healing process.
A number of years ago while praying in a small chapel near her home, Parker was inspired to write and publish "Remembering My Father." While her father was alive at the beginning of her journey, Parker believes that her experiences preparing the journal allowed her to survive his unexpected passing two years later. "Because of my own studies of grief and healing, my heart was strengthened to make it through that difficult time of loss," Parker tells her readers.
Parker's beautiful, leather-bound journal includes pages for cherished photos and documents, geared toward families working through the grieving process together after the loss of a beloved father. Whether this journal is given as a thoughtful gift or purchased by the family itself, "Remembering My Father" provides comfort for the family and preservation of the father's precious legacy.
As families fill in each page, Parker hopes "Remembering My Father" will help in individual and group healing. According to Parker, "Working through the journal allows you to focus your thoughts when it can be difficult to focus at all." With pages designed to include fond memories, such as "The Lessons My Father Taught Me Through His Actions" and "One Word That Describes My Father," the journal will benefit both present and future generations of a family.
Between sections of the book, Parker includes quotations and verses from a multitude of texts designed to console families in all stages of grief. According to Parker, "All were chosen because of their beauty and their relevance to fathers everywhere."
"Remembering My Father" has brought peace to readers of all ages since the time of its release. Ann Curry, co-anchor from NBC's TODAY, tells Parker, "You comforted me. Thank you with all my heart. Your book is just what any grieving child needs."
