Shirley Granger I truly enjoyed this book by my friend. It has great information. Everyone should have a copy of this book to prepare for things that will happen in life. Please share with Family, It will surely make things a little easier when life changes - whether planned or not. I encouraged everyone to get this book. It will be a great help. Thanks Lynette. 💗🙏

 

I learned a lot about you. I was touched by how personal it felt. I told my cousins they should read it.  These are things everyone should prepare. It can be a rough discussion, but it is necessary.  I think you delivered the information in a way that is easy for someone who is squeamish to digest.

But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. (1 Tim. 5:8, KJV) (My addition)

The quote cited above from one of the Pastoral Epistles, generally attributed to the Apostle Paul, very easily applies not just to provisions in life but can very easily extend to those provisions that continue to speak from another dimension-- beyond the grave.                                                                                                                                                                    And that's precisely what the author, booker ml, had in mind when she penned this book. It's not about the deceased... it's about those who remain. It's about leaving a blueprint for them to follow in the short timeframe they have to publicly celebrate the life of the deceased and continue to carry on as the departed one would want. (My assessment of your writing: Taken from Synopsis, and pgs. 6-9).

Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. (Mat 24:44, KJV) (My addition based on your statement on pgs. 4, 5; 11-12, 16, etc.)

Just as planning for the end of life celebration is greatly facilitated by the documented desires of the one who has just transitioned, so also is the dispensation of worldly possessions in accordance with the wishes of the deceased. At such a time, the absence of such legal documentation can also be burdensome for those who have to make such a dispensation. And as Scripture cautions us, no man knows the day or the hour when he will draw his last breath so it behooves us to make preparation well in advance, as It's Not About Me, It's About Them posits (pgs. 11-14, 16, etc.)

The author, however, goes beyond the need for pre-planning and includes an exhaustive list of considerations (pgs. 12-14, 16, 17, 19-20, 23) for the various stages of the pre-planning and execution processes. Further personalizing the book, the author intersperses real life snippets of some of her experiences with the sudden passing of persons with whom she had a close relationship (Prophetess Thelma, a co-worker, etc.).

It's Not About Me, It's About Them is a must read before the reality of life takes center stage and it is also a valuable resource for when it does. (My conclusion, which I am allowed in such a review.)
