Mattie Cody Releases THERE IS ANOTHER LIFE! to Help Cope With Death and Grief
"The darker the night, the brighter the stars. The deeper the grief, the closer is God!" Such are the words of Fyodor Dostoyevsky in his powerful classic novel "Crime and Punishment." These words are further exemplified by debuting author Mattie Cody in a new self-help book about death, grief, and bereavement that she has personally published after a harrowing murder stole her son away from her. Despite its painful origin, Cody's book is inspiringly titled There Is Another Life!.
The story is about a mother who lost her only son because of murder. The main characters are God, the orchestrator of all things, and Cody as the primary witness. It then talks about her brokenness and the fight to live and heal. It is an amazing journey that testifies to the miraculous healing by God and the hope for eternal life. It is a suitable companion for anyone constantly seeking answers to loss, grief and bereavement.
Death and taxes are the only things certain in life according to Benjamin Franklin. This is why Cody's book is highly relevant at any period in time. What particularly inspired her to write her own book, aside from her own experience is the simple desire to preserve the moment and memories. Initially, this was her intention, but it naturally progressed to embody a bolder mission: to help others and to glorify God.
Genuine, evocative and glorifying God, There Is Another Life! is a book dedicated to the loving memory of Cody's own son, Watanabe "Wat" Cody. Not only is he the subject, but also the inspiration for its existence. Cody addresses her son in these moving words, "Wat, Mommy loves you! Thank You for saving my life!" These very words, her testimonial, and her new book have become a refuge for parents who feel the same.
