Synopsis: “Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.”
—Buddha

The loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult things a person can endure, and it is all too easy to lose sight of ourselves in the experience of grief. Yet it is in these times of trouble, when comfort is most needed, that it seems hardest to find.

When I Look to the Sky is a collection of thoughts, prayers, and poems, carefully selected to provide those who grieve with much-needed strength and support in their darkest moments. Serving as a source of both emotional support and personal guidance, When I Look to the Sky helps put things in perspective, allowing each of us to come to terms with loss in our own way, and in our own time.

When I Look to the Sky mixes hope with introspection, sorrow with beauty, and loss with love. Its timeless quotes and captivating verses belong in the hands of anyone who looks to the sky for answers.
