About the Author

LORRAINE PETERSON graduated from North Park College with a major in history and has taught at junior high and high schools in Illinois and Minnesota as well as at American schools in Quito, Ecuador, and Guadalajara, Mexico. Lorraine currently resides in Juárez, Mexico, where she works with young people and is developing a Spanish youth curriculum. Besides teaching, she also has a gift for ministering to people who have recently experienced the death of a loved one. By analyzing the ways she and her friends have handled grief, Lorraine has discovered how the time-tested words of Scripture apply to dealing with the emotions evoked by grief. Lorraine is one of the authors interviewed on the video course called 'Grief Share' (www.griefshare.org) which is sponsored by Church Iniciative (1-800-395-5755).

Format: Hardcover
In Restore My Soul: A Grief Companion, Lorraine Peterson presents an informative, "reader friendly" guide for Christians needing to face and understand their feelings in coping with the loss of a loved one. The emotions arising from the death of a friend, family member, or colleague can be devastating as unresolved grief threatens to result in emotional, psychological, or spiritual isolation. The thirty-one short, easy-to-read chapters compassionately and articulately address ways and means to cope with life after loss. Each chapter presents a brief reflection on the issue of loss, followed by carefully selected Scripture readings and a suggested prayer. Restore My Soul is urgently recommended reading for anyone (regardless of denominational affiliation) whose soul has been savaged by the loss of a parent, spouse, child, relative, friend, companion, or colleague.

This is one of the best grief books I've ever found. They are sometimes very difficult to find because it's fairly old, but I always try to keep several on hand. I find it invaluable. It carried me through the bottom of the pit when I lost my husband, and I try to share it when others I know have lost loved ones.

This book allows for gentle healing in the grief journey. It contains short, but so specific feelings - that encourage the reader to find their strength. I work in a counseling role and highly recommend this book to all - at any stage in grief - it will help move them forward so they can continue to grow.

I love the book! I think it is a wonderful book to give a friend who has just lost a child or soon after to help them begin to grieve in a gentle loving way. I lost my son almost 6 years ago and I enjoy reading it. God's word has always been my saving grace through the grief of my son. His love can give comfort that no one else can.

As far as spiritual books dealing with grief, this is by far the best I've found. After the loss of my husband, this book brought me great comfort. I have since bought copies for grieving friends. I highly recommend it.
