A Blessing For We Who Grieve

I am amazed and inspired by this little book. Every short chapter, written in a daily devotional style like a Christian or 12-step recovery book, has reaffirmed the thoughts and feelings I hesitate to express openly to some people at church. My sister Andrea died unexpectedly 1 week ago (today is 1/6/02) and it's been...hard (and it's hard to find the right word to describe how it's been). I found this book "by accident" at a used book store. Now I am ordering copies so I can give this one to her husband and son. Thank you Jesus for the openess and honesty and truth in this little book, it's going to help with a lot of healthy grieving and healing in the next few years.

Very Helpful

My husband died totally unexpectedly four weeks ago and a friend pressed a copy of this book into my hand about a week later. Even though I was shell-shocked it was very easy to read - you can pick up and put down easily - skip the chapters that do not yet pertain to how you are feeling and repeatedly read the ones that do apply to the myriad of emotions you are experiencing. I am returning the book to my friend but will buy at least three more copies, one for myself and the rest for friends/family going through similar experiences. The book provides hope when you feel things are at their most hopeless.

Excellent for the immediate grieving period after death

My father-in-law was killed instantly in a motorcycle accident. This was the only book that my mother-in-law could concentrate on right after it happened. The chapters are short, very specific, and include a short scripture reference. I've just ordered it for a newly-widowed woman at our church.

Most helpful book in guiding me through the grief process

After the loss of our baby at 13 weeks pregnancy, the death of my father 1 month later, and the death of my grandmother 2 weeks after that, I needed the help and support that this book gave me to guide me through an intense period of grief. The authors helped me to realize my feelings were normal, and that I wasn't going crazy. I have since given this book to my mom, my brothers and sisters, and my best friend who recently lost both her mom and dad within a three week period. Everyone I have given this book to has said how helpful it was to them, also.

A practical way to cope with grief daily

When my Mom died, I experienced grief for the first time. It was a very odd experience. A friend gave me this book. It helped me to understand my feelings and to cope with them. I have given it to each friend since who is experiencing grief. Although written from a Christian world view, my non-Christian friends have appreciated the practical approach the authors take.
