Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth. The first heaven and the first earth disappeared, and the sea vanished. And I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared and ready, like a bride dressed to meet her husband.
I heard a loud voice speaking from the throne:
“Now God’s home is with mankind! He will live with them, and they shall be his people. God himself will be with them, and he will be their God. He will wipe away all tears from their eyes. There will be no more death, no more grief or crying or pain.
The old things have disappeared.”
"I do NOT read, I have always hated to read. I have bought several books in my life with good intentions and I would NEVER finish it. This Book I finished in 1 seating! I could not put it down until I was done. I cried, I laughed and prayed. I prayed for the writer and her family and will continue to pray for them. She has had so much heart ache in her life that no one should ever have. But she overcame it and kept her faith. Anyone that buys this book will love it!! I know it will touch their hearts like it did mine. Many Blessing to the writer for opening up something so private and personal. Thank you for writing this book and showing me even through hard time, Faith will help you through anything. Love to you!"

"This memoir is so honest, it felt like Wendy ( the author) was in the room talking to me. Wendy would share a funny story or one liner even through the heartaches and sadness and cruelty she endured. I loved the format of the book, it is filled with quotes, inspiration, song references and signs from her loved ones from heaven. I am literally " Holding onto the Good" because I cannot put it down. This book will stay at my bedside for inspiration."
- Janet Coffman
"I received my copy yesterday and could not put it down. I finished it last night. Wow! what a great read. The style of writing puts the reader right there with the author or at least it did me. I was having one of "those" days yesterday both professionally and personally and this really put it all in prespective. I can see how this would have been so cathartic for the author. This a must read for everyone."

"Holding onto the Good… is the story of a woman’s journey thru Hell, and how her perseverance and faith sustained her. During her life the author experienced numerous losses of people close to her. The death of her son, Billy, in a car accident at the age of 20 was the impetus for her writing. What began as a journal became a journey of the soul. The author shows great courage, and an open heart as she writes this brutally honest account of events. The loss of a child is one of the most heartbreaking experiences a parent can have. I strongly recommend reading this book with a box of tissues beside you."
- Beverly Buxton
"Anyone who has ever lost a loved one, this book is a must read. The writer went through more heartaches than anyone should ever have to and found her way back to her faith. I’m going back to read it one more time after just finishing it because I couldn’t put it down the first time and want to take my time reading it again."
- Renee Martin
"I highly recommend this book!"
"Wow! This is such an inspirational book. The author pours out her heart writing about the pain and heartache that she experienced after the loss of her son, mother and sisters. I believe this book will give hope to anyone who is struggling with the loss of a loved one, battling cancer or who is in an abusive environment. You will be so drawn into this book that you will not be able to put it down."
- Kim H
"This book is a heart wrenching story of love and loss. I applaud the author for sharing her life with the readers. The writings are raw and honest and filled with so much emotion. I could feel her heartache while I was reading. I recommend for anyone who has lost a loved one, especially a child."
"I absolutely love this book and recommend it to everyone, especially if you have suffered the lose of a loved one. I grew up in the same town as the author and still cried through it. Wendy has poured her heart out in this book and not only is it masterfully written but she is a woman with a heart of gold that has been broken over and over again, yet she somehow never loses her relationship with God, so inspiring!!"
