Megan5 Stars Out Of 5A merging of practical and spiritual guide through griefJuly 11, 2022MeganThis book has been such a comfort to me. It helped me not to feel (crazy) going through all the ups and downs of profound loss. These kinds of insights and encouragement can only be given from someone who has walked through deep pain and grief and is willing to relive it all and use it to encourage others. I am deeply grateful for the author sharing her brokenness.
Elizabeth O.5 Stars Out Of 5Practical & hopeful resource on griefJuly 11, 2022Elizabeth O.Instead of treating grief as a thing to be dreaded or avoided, when faced with the tragic loss of her husband, Clarissa befriends grief as her companion. And she invites us to do the same. Her warm and honest way of writing welcomed me into this practical, emotional and spiritual journey through grief. She truly served as a gentle guide, encouraging me to make room for grief and ultimately to allow Jesus to become my companion in suffering and hope. As a Christian, she challenges the church to embrace grief and lament for the very real part they play in the life of the believer. As a mother of four, she writes about the unique needs of children and their journey with grief as well. Throughout the book, Clarissa writes honestly about pain with an undergirding of joyful hope. I highly recommend this book and audiobook to both those who are experiencing grief and loss as well as to those who may walk alongside them.
Brad Belote5 Stars Out Of 5A Joyful, Deeply Satisfying bookJuly 11, 2022Brad BeloteI've read a number of books on grief and this is one of the best. Clarissa's eloquent words and personal story take you by the hand and lead you down a trail of enlightenment on the path of grief. Her writing is effective and efficient, painting pictures and tugging at your heart with each page. (I highly recommend the audio book - her voice reveals the deep sorrow and longing for anyone dealing with grief feels.)
Her guidance extends beyond just practical notions like self-cafe; she speaks to spiritual and emotional growth that are possible while also recognizing the uncertainty and pain of grief. Her playbook for churches to become more "grief aware" is worth further exploration.
I suspect this book will resonate more with those who've been on their grief journey for a least a few months. You have perspective and can identify with the experiences and emotions Clarissa so keenly describes.
Whether you are a few months or a few years into your grief journey, you will find great hope and comfort in Clarissa's word. ***** - Highly recommended
Colleen5 Stars Out Of 5Kind and CompassionateJuly 5, 2022ColleenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Clarissa Moll has written a book that explains so clearly many of the aspects of walking in grief. As I read the book, I nodded my head to agree with her wise words, laughed and also sobbed as the concepts reflected what I have personally encountered in grief.
I am also so blessed by her intention to continually direct us to Jesus as the true source of our comfort in all hard things that cause us to grieve.
You will be as well.
