Sunlight in December
A Mother’s Story of Finding the Goodness of God in the Storm of Grief
Released: July 2021
If God is good, why is there so much suffering in the world?
If God is good, why did my babies die?
Kristin Hernandez found herself asking these questions countless times as she walked through the bitter storm of grief and loss. After years of unexplained infertility, Kristin and her husband, Chris, were thrilled to be pregnant with their first child. Their elation turned to concern when a routine anatomy scan revealed their miracle child would be born with a terminal condition. In the wake of their newborn son’s death, Kristin began to wrestle with God’s goodness and the purpose of suffering. As she and her husband walked through the loss of four more babies, Kristin discovered the unshakeable truth we can cling to when physical storms linger and all seems hopeless.
In Sunlight in December, Kristin shares the raw emotions that come with grief and invites readers to journey with her as she wrestles with God and discovers His goodness in unexpected places. This powerful memoir dives head first into difficult topics such as death, doubt, and seemingly unanswered prayer, all while leaving the reader with encouragement and hope.
