Orange Moments is the true story of the tragic death of Laura's eleven-year-old son and how she was able to lean into God rather than turn away at a time when there were no answers and explanation for how or why God let it happen. On a typical Sunday afternoon, following morning mass, the day after Tristan's eleventh birthday party, Laura and her husband found themselves living their worst nightmare. Laura and her husband kept their boys safe; as parents, it was their top priority and responsibility. After years of swimming lessons, wearing helmets, setting boundaries on the driveway so as to not go into the street, and discussing rules about not talking to strangers or wandering off, they had not prepared for this. A must read if you have ever found yourself in a situation that has left you broken in a thousand pieces on the floor, asking God, "Why?" Laura states, "It's not if-it's when something like this happens to you." We all have family and friends we love, and death is inevitable. Laura claims her faith is the single most important reason why she's still standing and encourages her readers to develop a relationship with Christ for endurance and perseverance. Overcome with grief, Laura's writing is honest, vulnerable, and raw as she offers a glimpse into the daily struggle of losing a precious child. Follow Laura along the path she and her family endured for the first year following her son's death. Grief's stages do not happen in order, and there is no checklist to get through it. Laura navigates through her grief and all its ups and downs with her faith, the support of friends, family, church, and exercise. Orange Moments provides hope and inspiration for anyone suffering a loss. Laura believes God does not cause bad things to happen. It's easy to blame God, yet He's the one working within our circumstances while the evil one continues to break us down and tear us apart. Fight back, endure, have hope, and find your orange moment.
