Jun 2, 2022

Recent release “Five More Minutes!” from Covenant Books author Bambe Riker Johnson is an emotional guide for parents, from a mother, when a child passes away. Having lived the nightmare twice, Johnson shows how she prevailed and provides guidance for living daily life in the period following the loss of a child.

Bambe Riker Johnson, a voice for those who have experienced loss has completed her new book, “Five More Minutes!”:  an emotional guide to living through the loss of a child when moving on is not acceptable.

Johnson shares, “What happens when your worst fears as a parent come true, when you receive that dreaded phone call, the one you have always prayed you would never get? Your child has passed away, and now you are living a real-life nightmare. You suddenly beg God and bargain for just five more minutes with your child. You want to hold them again, tell them you love them, and that everything will be all right. In reality, you must now face the truth. You will never see them again.

Each chapter stands alone as a guide to handle daily life, including information on legal processes involved, living without your loved one, handling relationships with others and with God, managing your mental health, addiction, and even suicide. This book will help you in your darkest hours, and if you are seeking to help someone you love, this will give you insight. This has also been written to help mental health professionals as a means of trauma education.”
