Melissa Zaldivar is the author of a new Christian grief book, awesomely titled “What Cannot Be Lost: How Jesus Holds Us Together When Life is Falling Apart.” I spoke with Melissa about her life in New England, the story of losing her best friend to cancer and what she learned through the grief and loss of that experience.
Melissa is an incredible and insightful writer whose words are full of wisdom. At a time when loss has become familiar to all of us in some way, shape or form, her book and this interview speak to the emotions of so many. Whether is loss of a person, a dream or something else, you’ll be sure to resonate with Melissa’s experience.
She also did the coolest thing, by weaving in the story of Little Women (which is set in the town she lives in!) and the loss of Beth in that story (which is true!), into her book. In other words, Little Women lovers will get an extra special treat. I really enjoyed this conversation and know you will too!
