When Mountains Crumble: Rebuilding Your Life After Losing Someone You Love by Danita Janae [REVIEW]


How do we make sense of what feels senseless?

Grief leaves us with empty arms and fistfuls of questions. If we don’t get help processing our loss, we can easily get stuck there. But take heart—there is hope to be found for the way ahead.

When Mountains Crumble offers you an interactive, healing journey through the big questions and emotions of grief. This book serves as your companion and guide, providing practical wisdom and thought-provoking questions that will help you wrestle with the pain you’re feeling.

Danita Jenae, a survivor of loss herself, helps lighten your load of sorrow with gripping honesty, reassuring gentleness, and a mild case of dark humor. She braves topics like doubting God’s goodness and wondering why this happened. Danita will help you:

Grieve in your own way at your own pace
Make peace with the big emotions of sorrow
Process your doubts and questions
Find peace and laughter, even in the heartbreak

When Mountains Crumble isn’t a formulaic how-to book because there’s no right or wrong way to grieve. In fact, you’ll find the freedom and permission to feel what you need to feel and ask what you need to ask. Through vivid word pictures, poetry, and illustrations, you’ll begin to understand your grief in a fresh way. By sifting through the ashes alongside Danita, you’ll uncover peace for now and hope for the future. And as you begin to embark on this difficult journey . . . you’ll no longer feel so alone.


This is hands down the best book I have ever read about living in and through your grief.

The author is careful to explain that there is no set formula for proper grieving. It looks different for each of us.

Whether you’re looking for a devotional to guide you through the rock slide of personal loss, or you want to be able to appropriately support someone who is, When Mountains Crumble can be that tool.

I received this book FREE from the author, publisher, distributor, or other source. My only obligation is to provide a fair and honest review.


  1. This sounds like a very helpful book for dealing with grief. There are no easy answers. A devotional guide through the process could be very beneficial. It is a personal process, and you take it one day at a time.
