Publisher's Description

The loss of a loved one is devastating, and the grief that follows is often crippling. While modern Western culture has adopted an aren't-you-over-it-yet? attitude toward death and the grief it brings, the grieving process can take years.

Weeks and months go by with no visible improvement. We might even wonder if God has forsaken us. Then one day it happens: We laugh. We feel connnected, restless, maybe even hopeful. We're no longer consumed by our loss, and our thoughts turn outward. These are the first signs of healing.

Though the tendency in our fast-paced society is to suppress our grief or ignore it all together, Grieving God's Way inspires a different course of action. In this 90-day devotional Margaret Brownley provides the framework for a methodical grieving process that follows God's plan.

Grieving God's way requires us to trust that He will lead us through the darkness, heal our pain, take away our weariness, and fill our hearts with hope, peace, and new purpose. From defining what grief is to validating its importance, Brownley gives us the components necessary to find God within our sorrow and grieve with Him.

Divided into four sections, Grieving God's Way offers insight into healing our grieving body, soul, heart, and spirit. Infused with scriptures and inspirational haiku by Diantha Ain, this book motivates us to shift our grieving from man's way to God's way. . . slow and often invisible but with truly amazing results.

So how long does it take to grieve? As long as it takes God to heal.

    Grieving God's Way

    I requested this book to review as part of the BookSneeze program with Thomas Nelson Publishers. I received this book free and my obligation is to write an honest review.

    When I requested this book I had a particular friend in mind and wanted to read the material before passing it along. When the book came and I read the first couple of days, it is a 90 day devotional, I was totally unimpressed. In my mind I determined to force myself through and give it to our church library. While there was nothing doctrinally incorrect I was just "not feeling it" as my millennial children would say. But about day three I began to read carefully through each devotional day and found myself falling more in love with Margaret Brownley and her journey.

    Now, I would say it is the most practical thing I have seen in a very long time. You see, while not an expert on grieving and how to do it "best" I have had my share of personal grief with the loss of both parents, a brother and loss of my life as I knew it prior to April, 2001. I found each devotional day to be encouraging in God's word and also a practical application or practice to begin the healing process. While we know God does the healing, it may take some length of time before the feelings catch up with our spirit.

    I would highly recommend this book and will be purchasing some to give as gifts for those who are in the depths of grief. I know God had a plan for me when I ordered this book and I am grateful.

    Margaret Brownley's son died after a prolonged illness. After three years of not writing a word, she wrote this lovely book , a 90-day devotional to help others facing grief and loss.

    It's been seven years since my dad died and I haven't experienced intense mourning since then. And yet, this book ministered to me. I found myself underlining beautiful quotes on each page and taking notes in my journal.

    Her daily entries are short, perfect for those overwhelmed by emotion and unable to tackle long reading assignments. She's both highly practical and spiritually wise, giving encouragement and grace-filled challenges along the way, all from the perspective of someone who has been there herself. Divided into four sections, the book addresses healing for the body, soul, heart and spirit.

    I never expected to love this book as I much as I did. I thought I'd read it quickly and then give it away, maybe to a hurting friend or the church library so others could enjoy it as a resource during their grief. And yet, now I want to keep this copy for myself and buy copies for others. As a resource for those suffering loss, it's powerful.

    But it's also a great resource for friends, family members, and church leaders who are helping others through grief. It's the perfect opportunity to gain understanding, learn what to say and what not to say, what to do and what not to do. Too often, we don't really get it. We say the wrong thing or fail to say anything at all. We come on too strong or pull away too much. We spew opinions about what grief should look like and how long it should last. This book was a teaching tool for those of us who want to love others like Jesus and avoid the common pitfalls of clueless onlookers, observers of another's sorrow.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.

    Grieving God's Way: The Path To Lasting Hope And Healing, written by Margaret Brownley, is a book designed to carry its reader through the difficulties of grieving by drawing them closer to God.

    Margaret's 90 day devotional is purposefully divided into four sections: Healing the Grieving Body, Healing the Grieving Soul, Healing the Grieving Heart, and Healing the Grieving Spirit. Each of these sections are designed to move the grieving person from the moments of feeling alone and disconnected from the world into the understanding of God's presence and purpose, even within that which they had experienced.

    These devotionals have the power to change our understanding of the grieving process. They carry us from our faulty system of grieving into a process that is inspired by and filled with the Word of and presence of God. Thus, this is a recommended read for all who are grieving and those who want to help another through the grieving process.

    Grieving God's Way: The Path to Lasting Hope and Healing by Margaret Brownley is a 90-day devotional. This book was born out of a tragic loss experienced by the author. She lost her oldest son to an illness. Three years after her loss she penned this book. I am grateful that through her own pain she has chosen to bring healing to others. This book was written to assist people during the grieving process and is broken into the following four parts: healing the grieving body, healing the grieving soul, healing the grieving heart and healing the grieving spirit.

    I thought this book was very well written and it was easy to read. Each devotional consists of two pages. Although short, the pages are packed with powerful information. The brevity of each devotional allows time for reflection and provides just the right amount of information. Although this book was written for the grieving soul, I believe people who are experiencing other forms of loss may benefit from this book as well. I say this because as I read this book I thought of people who are going through really difficult times right now. They may not be grieving a person but they are grieving a loss. I believe some of the lessons learned in this book could help them while they are on their road to healing. This book may not be for everyone as we all grieve differently but I do recommend it as I believe it will help many.

    Having recently lost both of my closest grandparents in less than a year's time, I thought it might be interesting to get another Christian's perspective on the grieving process, so I picked this book up.

    While the author does have some excellent advice for the grieving Christian, such as turning your focus onto others, keeping yourself active and healthy, dealing with survivor's guilt, and making a conscious effort to learn and grow in your faith through your grief, I have to say that I wasn't terribly impressed with this book.

    Yes, grief is an ugly, brutal, complicated thing that doesn't go away over night and is tough to deal with. But there were several instances while reading this book when it seemed like I was being encouraged to dwell on my grief, analyzing and bisecting it rather than actually healing and moving on. The entire book wasn't that way, but a few sections of it definitely gave off that impression.

    Some of the author's statements seemed overly poeticized, making grief and bereavement into some vague, almost mystical idea. In my experience, there is nothing mystical about grief. The writing was beautiful, but not always meaningful. There were several times when I felt like quoting Cap Rountree from The Sacketts: "Now ain't that purdy? I don't know what it means, but it sure did sound elegant."

    "The stillness of grief is an invitation to sail into the inner self and explore the harbor of forgotten goals and still-cherished dreams..." (Pg. 4)

    Lovely writing, I'll be the first to acknowledge. But someone please explain to me exactly what that is supposed to actually mean. My personality and upbringing are both very much geared towards keeping it real, and this book fell a ways short of that mark. I'm just not that touchy-feely.

    As I said, there was some very helpful content in this book. I had been my grandmother's primary caretaker for seven months when she passed away, and I've struggled with survivor's guilt as a result. This book did offer some very practical advice on how to deal with that in a positive way.

    But on the whole, it was just too poeticized and touchy-feely for my tastes.

    I received this book free of charge from the publisher in exchange for my review.
