Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Hope, help, and healing for grieving children.

My grandfather's death was a mystery to me.  One day he was there...the next day he was gone. All I knew was that now when I knelt down to say my prayers before bed, I asked God to bless Grandpa in heaven.  But heaven can be a pretty hard concept to grasp, especially when you are five years old. I didn't know where heaven was or what it meant to go there.

In this practical, faith-based guide for parents of grieving children, DeTurris Poust seeks to help parents deal with the mystery and confusion surrounding death and grief.  Threough the wisdom of seasoned parents and advice from professionals, DeTurris Poust offers strategies for leading children successfully through the grieveing process toward healing and happiness.

"...a breath of fresh air in the genre of grief and grieving.  This is a work that grasps the reader's attention from the get-go and never lets up." --Ron Wooten-Green, author, When the Dying Speak

"One of the most informative working tools for parents who are struggling to help their child cope with grief. I highly recommend it as a practical 'how-to' guide for bereaved families as well as professionals working in this field." --Susan P. Cox, executive director, For the Love of Christi, Inc.

Format: Paperback
The writer's personal approach makes this an easy and insightful read. Rather than another book full of only "expert" opinions, she has gathered stories from her own family, as well as others, showing how parents and other adults can help children cope with loss. I wish I had had this book last year--it would have helped me understand my teenager's reaction to his grandmother's death. This is one I'll keep on my bookshelf and plan to send a copy to my sister as well.

Format: Paperback
This book can serve as a practical guide for helping children through very difficult situations. However, after reading this book you realize it is much more than that. It is the way the author recounts her own experiences, as well as the personal experiences of others, that make for compelling reading.
