Marlene Burling on The Books of the Month with Bishop O.C. Pringle of Preach The Word Network

Celebrated Author, Marlene Burling, appeared in the TV Show, “The Books of the Month”, hosted by Bishop O.C. Pringle of Preach The Word Network, a promotional television show that spotlight authors to the viewing audience.

The guest appearance highlighted Burling’s work which deserved a closer look for its inspiring devotions, prayers, and thoughts. In her book, A Daily Walk with God Burling uses her God-given talent in writing to tell a heartfelt and fearless story about her grief after the death of her spouse, her in-laws, and the year and a half following his husband’s diagnosis, illness, and passing. This book powerfully demonstrates that writing can be a companion in bereavement. Integrated with poetry, and reflections is a therapeutic process for Burling. The author unflinchingly explores several of themes that are underrepresented in existing resources: how one deals with anger associated with loss, continuing conversations with God, among others.

She tears up talking about her husband’s last days in the hospital, “We had our Christmas miracle that day he said goodbye”, she added emotionally before stopping to collect her thoughts.

Burling successfully combines a personal story, heart-rending poetry, biblical stories, and grief. A Daily Walk with God is uniquely valuable for those grieving a spouse or other loved one, those supporting others in bereavement, and those interested in the healing power of God and life writing.

“We are victors in Christ and we don’t have to be victims of our circumstances”, a phrase that spontaneously received a high-five gesture from Bishop O.C. Pringle. The book will also benefit from reading this resonant resource on God’s powerful love and loss. It is also a story of real love, to which many people will relate. It is rhythmic, accessible, theoretically, and socially aware, and sensitive to the risks of representing life as it is experienced. We all have something to learn from Marlene Burling’s work.
