Guy Delcambre writes, “In grieving, grace strengthened me every sinking moment, every day. Steadily, the pain dissolved.” Earth and Sky is the story of a traveler walking through the deepest valley and the highest mountain, through great heartache and unexpected joy. It is not a book about grief, but a book about grace and the goodness of God in the darkest night. With a refreshing frankness and raw emotion, Guy shares his journey from happy husband, to grieving widower, to single dad and victorious believer. It is a journey filled with great spiritual insight and hope. It was not a journey he chose for himself and his three young daughters, but one in which he declares, “God reframed my life with His truth and grace.” If you have experienced great loss you will find here a reason to persevere and find peace through the storm. You will be inspired to learn how God descends into the messiness and loneliness of life, and grows faith watered by grace.
Guy Delcambre shares his own story about losing his wife, Marianne. A natural storyteller, the author puts the reader right in the hospital, right in the room, right in the moment as he has lived it. It’s agonizing and personal, yet not so much that the reader feels like they’re intruding. Woven into his story are insights and Bible verses that could encourage anyone who is in a place of grief.
I could relate to some of what he wrote as I lost a parent. However, I think those who will respond the most will be those who have lost a spouse. The person might not be able to read it right away if the loss is recent, but when they do, they will be comforted. And blessed.

I have a princess at home. She loves pink, sparkles, tiaras and singing out her words because life is a song to her. She’s had a hard life in a short amount of time but because of that, she knows she’s God’s girl. I can’t wait to share this book with her. Honestly, I plan to hide this in her Easter basket because the book contains treasures far richer than peanut butter cups.
I believe this book is a great one to read with your daughter. There are hands on things to do to grow your relationship with her. There are also ideas she can do with friends. The book is full of Scripture to help navigate your princess through royal choices so she can live like the princess in Christ she truly is.
A fun guide book for God’s little princesses.
