Ever since Miles passed Mark and I have been consumed with reading books.
Specifically books that are based on LDS scripture, doctrine, quotes and journal entries of past prophets, etc. about death, the spirit world and the coming of the Lord.
It's amazing just how much peace and comfort they bring us.
It seems when we aren't reading these books, life is harder and our spirits are down.
They have helped us both so much.
It's funny that we are even sharing books and deep conversations with my Grandpa on the matter now.
He lost his sweetheart almost 5 years ago.
It's wonderful to hear his perspective as he is a very well verse man in the gospel.
Many people have asked for our reading list so here it is.

I'm also wondering if anyone out there has any others books on this subject matter that they would suggest.
