—SARAH PHILPOTT, author of Loved Baby: 31 Devotions Helping You Grieve and Cherish Your Child after Pregnancy Loss
“Much like the beloved allegory Hinds’ Feet on High Places, Danita has invited the reader into a transforming journey by the goodness and mercy of God. I was moved to tears more than once, not just because of her immeasurable heartache—rather, due to the powerful, poignant way she artistically wove God the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit into everyday struggles. This book is a priceless friend in print, drawing the reader into their own story.”
—MARY JO PIERCE, intercessor, speaker, and author of Adventures in Prayer and Follow Me: An Unending Conversation with God
“When Mountains Crumble is thought-provoking, honest, challenging, and outright good reading. As a widow, I readily identify with the fog, the shock, the sorrow, and even the dumb decisions she experienced. It helps a widow navigate through her grief by answering the personal questions posed and lets others better understand and pray for anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one.”
—QUIN SHERRER, author of Hope for a Widow’s Heart
“We’re from different generations; I’m older, Danita is younger. Our stories are different, yet the same. I lost my precious daughter to liver cancer while she lost her amazing husband in a climbing accident. Our pain hurts the same. In When Mountains Crumble, Danita is vulnerable and heart-wrenchingly honest, giving both practical help and spiritual wisdom gleaned during her walk through the Valley of Weeping. I highly recommend this book!”
—LINDA DILLOW, author of Calm My Anxious Heart and Satisfy My Thirsty Soul

—BISHOP KEN ROSS, Anglican Diocese of the Rocky Mountains
“I wholeheartedly recommend When Mountains Crumble to all my GriefShare participants! Danita is truly a gifted writer. I love how honest and vulnerable she is with her own grieving, as well as the questions for self-reflection at the end of each chapter. I wish I could have had this resource when my husband died of a brain tumor.”
—DEBBIE BEATTY, hospice nurse, GriefShare coordinator, military widow
“As a trauma-trained counselor, I have seen many walk the journey of grief, loss, and trauma. Danita has written a powerful, beautiful book, the perfect wise and gentle companion for anyone walking through grief. Offering a practical vulnerable peeking into her own grief story laced with Scripture and hope and a safe space to feel all the feelings—this is a treasure for those walking in deep darkness. This book is a seasoned guide, a refuge, and a journey toward step-by-step healing. I will be giving this book out to any client/friend going through grief.”
—JENNIFER HAND, Executive Director of Coming Alive Ministries; author of My Yes Is on the Table: Moving from Fear to Faith

—BECKY HARLING, conference speaker and bestselling author of How to Listen So People Will Talk and Psalms for the Anxious Heart
“After losing our son, a Lieutenant Colonel in the US Air Force, the grief was overwhelming. Danita has captured the journey through grief eloquently, lovingly, and truthfully.

—PAUL AND ANITA, proud Gold Star parents

—CARLIE KERCHEVAL, author and cofounder of Marriage Legacy University
“As a recent widow and still very fresh in my grief, this beautiful balm of a book is so soothing to my sad and hurting heart. Danita’s writing is filled with a raw honesty—the kind that makes you nod your head without realizing it—and she blends in wisdom with a touch of humor that is so badly needed when in the midst of grief.”
—TRICIA MARCHAND, young widow and mom of two
“I lost my first husband at twenty-three and my second at thirty-one years young. If only there had been this kind of hope written down for me! Danita’s book is certainly helping demolish the mountain of aloneness in pain and grief for the widow. These devotionals will paint the words He wishes any young widow to know: I AM HERE.”
—RACHEL FAULKNER BROWN, director of Be Still Ministries and Never Alone Widows

—DARLENE LARSON, author, Life Purpose Coach®, Grief-Loss Coach, Recovery Coach, founder of Hearts with a Purpose
“Unfortunately, I’ve lost friends in all branches of the military, and recently lost my father, a Vietnam Veteran Marine, and have learned I can do much to heal by learning from others and trusting in God’s unfailing love. In When Mountains Crumble, Danita has done a wonderful job presenting practical ways to help anyone experiencing grief rebuild by explaining much about what grief is and isn’t, letting them know some of what to expect, and using devotional stories about her personal experiences with examples and questions to help guide those experiencing loss move forward with God’s unshakable peace and unconditional compassion.”
—JOE LEWIS, USAF, Lt. Col. (Ret.); founder and CEO, Angels of America’s Fallen

—SARAH, headmaster and award-winning school teacher
“Danita Jenae’s words have been like a friend who understands, a balm. I can’t wait to share the grief-birthed wisdom she’s penned here with others. Danita has tossed out convention and in its place shares tested comfort about loving well to the end and about more than just-getting-by with God at our side.”
—RACHEL VIRGINIA, law enforcement widow
“Because Danita was in a new community without a support network, she walked through the valley of the shadow of death leaning on Jesus. She will hold your hand through the valley with vulnerability. No religious platitudes or ‘should’ves’ here. She shares transparent emotions, pain, courage, and hope.”
—TERRI BROWN, The Table Church
“Danita Jenae is a woman on a mission to comfort God’s people in lovingkindness.
