This book greatly helped me through the grieving process when my mom passed away. The book contains short devotions that cover all aspects of grieving and provides helpful advice in the process of grieving. You can pick up the book and start reading anywhere. You don't have to read it in order. This book covers aspects of grieving that you don't even know you are experiencing and provides wise counsel in going through the grieving process. The authors are excellent in their approach and counsel. I have given several copies to others and each person has said it was a tremendous help to them. Highly recommend!
I received this gift after a death in my family. Since that time I have always given it. Without a doubt it is the most helpful book to help someone get over the grieving process. Down to earth, easy to read, helps you understand what you are going through is normal. Great book I would recommend.
This book is the most helpful book I have read on dealing with personal loss. The daily readings are short but impactful. The insights are practical, but not overwhelming, making it an easy read for those already dealing with a difficult situation. I have given one to each friend dealing with loss.
I bought this book for my cousin who lost her Dad and was going through a very difficult time. I read it through before sending it just to be sure. It provides helpful meditations with inspirational quotes.
I was expecting the book to provide more specific suggestions on what to do to cope with the various stages of grief but overall I would say it is useful.
I was blessed with a copy of this book from a friend just after I lost my husband to progressive Multiple Sclerosis in April, 2009. I can't say enough about how wonderfully written this book is for someone who is deeply hurting after losing a loved one. Since that time, I have passed along several copies to new widows and even to one widower. Many have told me how helpful this book has been and how much they appreciated it. You don't have to read the entire book but rather search for a specific chapter title which "speaks" to you and then read it. An excellent & tenderly written book for any person who is suffering the devastating lost of a loved one. It truly makes a lovely and thoughtful gift, too.
