Best book on grief ever. Why? Because it’s real. Because it tells you you’re not crazy. Because even though you’re in the midst of grieving and there’s all this noise and confusion in your head screaming at you, this book is the sweet whisper from Heather and Stu saying, “I get you. You’re not crazy. It’s gonna be ok.”

When Heather Wallace lost her father, all she really wanted was a book that could make her laugh, feel less alone in her grief, and would help her feel a little less crazy. She couldn't find that book. So she decided to write it. 

The end result is Faith, Grief & Pass the Chocolate Pudding, a book some might compare to a manual on what not to do while grieving, or the idiot's guide to not losing your mind through loss. The self-proclaimed "Princess of Chocolate Pudding," Heather's brutally honest, humorous approach to dealing with grief and her ability to share the story of her journey through the loss of her father is both refreshing and hilarious.

In Faith, Grief & Pass the Chocolate Pudding, co-author Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Rubio shares the loss of his younger brother Jamie from a guy's perspective. And because he considers himself slightly less weird than his friend, Heather.

Editorial Reviews

"MUCH NEEDED . . .Faith, Grief and Pass the Chocolate Pudding is not a traditional book on grief. It is a book about life that happens in the midst of grief and all the other stuff that happens along the way. Heather and Stuart provide a much needed perspective on coping with grief from a Gen X perspective." -REV. DR. ROBERT ERICKSON "A MESSAGE . . .Finally a book about grief so real that you actually find yourself laughing out loud when you thought you'd never laugh again. Heather and Stuart so unselfishly share their experiences as a message for all of us that we are not crazy, that everyone grieves on a different time schedule, and that eventually, things really will start to be ok." -AMY LOGAN, Author of A Girl With A Cape"EXTRAORDINARY . . . This book is an unconventional, educational, extraordinary, quirky, genuine, authentic, laugh-out-loud look at grief.  Heather and Stuart courageously tackle both the dark and humorous experiences associated with the death of a loved one." -PASTOR KAREN AKIN
