Customer Reviews

I've purchased extra copies to give away to those I know who've lost a loved one.
Michael D. Rose
It is well structured and contains very helpful advice for those supporting others through the grief journey.
Keith
The book is short, easy to read, and is small enough to be tucked inside a condolence card.

My pastor gave this book to me after my son died. After reading it, I HAD to purchase additional copies to give away. After the death of a close friend or family member, there are so many feelings we go through, and this book describes and addresses all of them I went through! Even one I didn't realize, from my Father's passing two years prior to reading this.
It gives the reader understanding of tumultuous feelings of loss, regret, guilt, AND release from any guilt, plus encouragement for the future. I highly recommend this book for yourself, a family member or friend; it will be one of the best things you could do.

This book describes the many different feelings grieving people have and offers assurance that healing will come but not according to some preset time table. The one who is grieving will better understand that his experience is normal and those who want to help will have more empathy after reading this book.
The author writes from a Christian perspective and includes some Scripture references, but the approach is gentle and should not be offensive to a non-Christian.
The book is short, easy to read, and is small enough to be tucked inside a condolence card. I plan to buy several copies.

Format: Paperback
This book is excellent. I read it about 1 month after my 3 year old died and I loved it. It is short, and a very easy read. Many books can be difficult to absorb in the fog of grief. Helped me understand places I was in, emotions I was experiencing, gave practical ideas for healing, and helped with expectations to come in the grief journey. this is very practical and I believe would be an excellent gift to anyone in grief, and at any point from the first day of mourning on. I would pay 3x the cost for the item!

After the deaths of my 15-year old daughter Elizabeth in February of this year and my Mom in May, I have been searching for a good book on grieving. After starting and tossing aside a number of books on the topic I found what I was looking for in this short, concise, powerful book. Grief can be overwhelming, even for a mature Christian, but this book helps us come to grips with our random thoughts and feelings and allows us to navigate our way through grief with God's help. I cannot recommend this book highly enough! If you've lost a loved one buy it for yourself. If you know someone who's lost a loved one buy one for them. They'll thank you for it. I've purchased extra copies to give away to those I know who've lost a loved one.

Format: Paperback
I received this little book following the death of my husband. It answered so many questions and quelled so many fears, all the time letting you know you aren't the first to feel them, or to be brought to your knees by them. It gives a suggested guideline as to how to approach life once again. I have since bought many copies and give them to friends and acquaintances in their time of grief.

The first faith based, realistic book about grief I have found. A simple, to the point book, which is what a new griever needs as it is difficult to concentrate in early grief.

This book was a great help when we suddenly lost our daughter in a motorcycle accident 3 years ago. I have given it to others since then who have lost loved ones.

This book walks the griefing person through the darkness of their despair and back into the light. I would recommend this book to anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one.
