Here is what early readers have to say about Reflections of Hope.
I was ready to end my life because I couldn’t take this pain of living without my son. I have no support, so I was ready to quit. Then I started reading Reflections of Hope and making notes. This book is going to help so many people. ~ Dawn K.
I feel like a sponge, absorbing something I need each and every day. I have been stuck for so many years, pushing away God and people around me. Reflections of Hope gave me "food for thought" and I'll add, “food for my heart." This book is a much needed read for any newly bereaved parent, as well as anyone who has had years of tears behind them. ~ Michele S.
God has given Laura a gift to help other parents climb out of this incredibly dark pit. As I read these daily writings in Reflections of Hope, they are helping me to get through my grief. ~ Carolyn B.
I have shed tears reading through Reflections of Hope, but they have been tears of hope and tears of release at just the right time. There are so many powerful points in the entries that I have shared with my husband, which has been a huge blessing to him, too. Reflections of Hope helps us to see things in ways we have never seen before or even considered before. Sometimes all I can say after reading an entry is…” WOW!” ~ Melissa S.
My grief is years ahead of Laura’s, but I have learned so much from the daily entries in Reflections of Hope. I am thankful that it has opened my eyes and ears to what I could not see or hear. ~ Cindy
I love the balance of grace and truth in Reflections of Hope. We have this pain, and we will always miss our child, but we can move forward in life, and one day thrive again. ~ Yolanda R.
You can join these bereaved parents and many others, receiving a daily word of hope and encouragement for an entire year.

Through this book, Laura will also help you get on the path to having a life of meaning and purpose again, not in spite of your child’s death, but because of his or her life.
