Life offers plenty of rewards, adventures and opportunities. It also presents us with setbacks and challenges. Eventually, we all must come to terms with loss. In a new edition of her acclaimed book, If I Could Mend Your Heart (Shorehouse Books, 2017), St. Paul author and retired pediatric hospital chaplain Mary Farr walks readers through sorrow and back to a path toward wholehearted living.

Farr comes to this thorny topic of grief from her years of experience as a hospital chaplain listening to the needs of families, children, healthcare workers and caregivers as they faced difficult life moments.

“Years ago, when I was training to become a hospital chaplain, my supervisor offered a startling observation,” noted Farr. “You will learn that the art of caring for another during the times of grief have little to do with a job description and everything to do with the interruptions. This book is about those interruptions.”
