Lyrics of a Broken Heart: A Father’s Journey Toward Wholeness

Turning his private journaling into a book, Jim Mueller shares with the reader the deepest emotions a father can experience from the loss of his child. Through lyric prose, he plumbs the depth of his journey from devastating loss to emotional recovery.

Mueller writes: The loss of Luke was dissociating and unhinging. I was groping in the darkness, in sadness, with no sense of how to move forward in a life without my son. The writing was the key to my sanity. As I continued to write, I discovered I was creating a pathway through grief toward emotional wholeness.

This book addresses often-overlooked aspects of parenting: a father’s perspective and love for his child. Jim Mueller’s insights and reflections are worth their weight in gold. This short book is packed with words of wisdom for all dads and especially those who may have a child with special needs.”
