"To read My Sunflower Girl is to overhear the soliloquy of Dyfan Williams, husband, father, and pastor, as he walks through the dark valley where shadows fall around him from the death of his beloved daughter Megan. As in King David’s great psalm there is a confession of deep faith (‘The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want’). But at times these pages also become conversations between a bruised but trusting soul and the Lord whose presence holds him fast in the dark (‘you are with me, your rod and staff they comfort me’).
Personal loss is profoundly individual. Yet here, in the poetic soul of Dyfan Williams, you will find an honesty combined with faith, an understanding nourished by experience, and a compassionate and gentle pastoral wisdom. My Sunflower Girl is a profoundly moving testimony to God’s presence with his people in their darkest hours." ~ Sinclair B Ferguson
Pastor Dyfan Williams allows readers an insight into the heart of suffering as he shares his experiences of walking through the Valley of Death. His story his real, raw, and readers will be moved by his openness to the brutal reality of grief. His book also addresses the questions often asked by those suffering, and begins to answer them in a sensitive and Biblical way. Pastor Dyfan Williams' honesty is very helpful; whether we too are facing suffering now, or know we will all at some point in our lives face the devastating reality of death too.
This is a beautifully written but deeply sad account of the loss of a young daughter. It is short and easy to read, so would be accessible to someone in the midst of grief who couldn’t take on board anything deeper. Dyfan is painfully real in sharing how his grief made him feel and how he communicated that with God. But it is a book full of hope too. I will be buying more copies to share with others who have been bereaved.
