About the Book

After the sudden death of their only son, Corey Russell and his family faced unbearable pain and loneliness. God carried them through the ensuing five years with promises from five specific psalms, comforting and awakening them.

We are all shaken by loss. God promised us His presence when we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, but questions remain. Can I recover? Will my family survive? And is there an eternal purpose? As Corey clung to the Psalms, he heard God’s voice invite him from tragedy to inheritance, promising, “The greatest places of your warfare will become the greatest places of your inheritance.”

Corey’s honest journey through these five psalms will help readers discover how the Good Shepherd heals His people, makes us into shepherds after His own heart, and calls us to believe in a God who turns the worst circumstances into a profound and eternal inheritance.

“Watch an exemplary family wrestle with agonizing grief and search to unlock God’s purposes in suffering. Because when you’re the Lord’s inheritance, everything in life is bathed in divine purpose.” —Bob Sorge, Author & Speaker
