Out Alive
A journey through loss with a heart alive
by Tammy Hagins

Overview


A book of hope and understanding for every moment of wondering, Will I ever truly feel alive again? When Tammy Hagins's husband died in a tragic accident at the age of 46, Tammy found herself on an unexpected and unwanted journey of grief. As she held her five-year-old daughter through long nights, navigated the endless paperwork surrounding Kevin's death, and learned the joys and challenges of receiving help from others, Tammy thought over and over, This is not the way life was supposed to go. Out Alive is the heart-wrenching, hope-filled story of Tammy's first year as a young widow. Writing for anyone experiencing shattered dreams, Tammy draws on her background as a counselor as well as her personal story to come alongside us in our own experiences of loss. Brutally honest about anger and fears, haunting regrets, and midnight wrestlings with God, Out Alive is a tribute to what it looks like to climb tenderly back to new life. As Tammy writes, despite all the unanswered questions, she holds a heart that is "alive and intact, possibly even more alive than it had been before my husband's death." If you are wondering how your life became something so different than what you had planned, find encouragement and companionship in Tammy's words as you embrace the beauty and the struggle of living with a heart alive.
