    The Tender Scar

    Life After the Death of a Spouse


    Offering hope and healing for the broken-hearted, The Tender Scar addresses the heart-wrenching pain of loosing a spouse. Using journal entries written after the death of his wife, Dr. Richard Mabry uses his own journey as a stepping-stone to a practical discussion of the grief process, offering help on such topics as:

    • Finding a support group
    • Resigning your commission
    • Combating funeral flashbacks
    • Reviewing the souvenirs of a lifetime
    • Facing holidays
    • Remembering an anniversary

    He connects with the reader in a way that makes them say, “Yes, I feel that way,” and “That might work for me—maybe I should try it.” He shares the emotions and situations he encountered, and acknowledges his own mistakes as well as his hard-won victories.

    “These are powerful words won in the conflict between heartbreak and healing. They are authoritative inasmuch as Dr. Mabry speaks from the trench and not the pulpit.”

    —Dr. Dan L. Griffin
    Pastor of Christ Fellowship Baptist Church
      Arlington, Texas
