Overview

Comforting words and inspirational ideas for living a new life after loss

Lori's sudden and traumatic loss of her mother sent her into a deep grief she'd never experienced and didn't know how to manage.

In Garden of Grief, Koidahl offers readers a look into her busy life as a mom and how losing her own mother and becoming a midlife orphan became a catalyst for rebirth and navigating the world in a new way. She encourages and supports others in their journeys through loss by sharing her own evolution of love, loss, and self-discovery during the most vulnerable time in her life.

Koidahl is familiar with grief and the sudden loss of loved ones. Her mother, father, and uncle all died in car crashes. Her father; before she was born, when he fell asleep at the wheel, her uncle when she was 13 by a distracted driver, and her mother was hit in a crosswalk by a red light runner.

As you turn the pages of this book you may:

  • Be shown a path forward
  • Experience encouragement, hope, and healing
  • See how opening your heart can shift pain and suffering
  • How honoring your feelings can help you through grief
  • Read stories that make you laugh, cry and take action
  • Encounter personal transformation in spite of pain
  • Discover you want to share your story

Each chapter opens with an inspirational quote, setting the stage for the chapter's quintessence, which highlights an area of deep reflection and learning.

In just a few minutes you'll read how Koidahl's writing style feels like a dear friend whose story is inspiring and makes you realize life is truly too precious to waste.
