MoonpiePRYORAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5HELP THROUGH THE JOURNEY OF GRIEFAugust 11, 2015MoonpiePRYORAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Having lost my mother and my husband within a year of each other, I found myself reading as many books as I could on grief. It is an uncharted territory each of us must face at different times in our lives. We have no clue what is ahead, how we will respond, nor what is expected of us. As a Christian I wanted insights and guidance from the scriptures, and the opportunity to learn from the experiences of others. Yes, our experiences and how we deal with our grief differ, but there are similarities that tie us all together.
Dr. H. Norman Wright is a not only a writer but a Christian therapist. In this book he shares his expertise and biblical knowledge to being to begin your journey through the sorrow. This book is for everyone. He includes valuable help in the loss of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, friend, pet and more.
I was so overwhelmed and consumed that it was hard for me to step outside the box of my pain and see anything else. This book helped me do that. It was a beginning, a first step. I was amazed at how the author described in detail many of the feelings and experiences I was encountering. Most of all the many scriptures and Bible truths strengthen my anchor to the only One that could help me heal. My journey is far from over, but I am thankful for the support and counsel I received from this book.
I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have stated are my own.
Victory GirlNW WashingtonAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Understanding grief from a Christian prespectiveOctober 8, 2014Victory GirlNW WashingtonAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I began reading Experiencing a Loss of a Family Member by H. Norman Wright, I was thinking this would be a good book to have on hand to give to someone who had experienced that loss. In addition, I thought it would be good information to know so I might be of help to someone else, or possibly in dealing with a future loss.
This book covers topics like the loss of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, friend and even pets. The author gives insight to how to help children deal with grief and gives practical examples of ways to answer those tough questions that they might have. There are also areas in the book to answer questions that are targeted at helping you to identify feelings that may keep you from moving forward after a loss.
What really caught my attention was that much of the advice could also relate to the grieving process as the result of a loss of relationship, even if that person is still alive. Although the author doesnt discuss that aspect, many of the feelings he includes in the book I could relate to from a personal experience.
I think Im going to hang on to this book for myself. If I have someone I know that I think would benefit from it, Ill get them a copy of their own.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
cmwinnerHalifax, Nova Scotia, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A great encouragementSeptember 15, 2014cmwinnerHalifax, Nova Scotia, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleDr. Wright does a wonderful job at explaining what the world of grief can be like for some people. While I myself have not experienced a profound lost, I have many friends who have, and this opened up my eyes to understand what they are going through.
He was able to share personal experience when it came to talk about the loss of a spouse or the loss of a child. In each and every section when talking about the loss of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, friend or pet, he talks about how we are not alone and God is with you every step of the way. He walk talks about the pain people feel in the loss of a loved one who are often forgotten. The grandparents who loss a grandchild. The sibling who lost a brother or sister. The person who lost their best friend.
The last chapter, and through each chapter, he gives wonderful insights on how we can be there for someone who has lost a loved one.
Dr. Wright is a grief and trama therapist and knows what he is talking about. While reading through his book, I couldn't decide who I wanted to share this book with more, a friend who recently lost a child or someone I know who lost their spouse.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has lost a loved one or know someone who has lost a loved one.
I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers for the sole purpose of this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expresses herein are my own.
