We need the waters of the sea to heal us and yield the creation of new life, and to help us in getting back in the river when we are experiencing the pain of death or significant loss and little makes sense to us. We need the restorative, buoyant, able to be salt again, depths of God's unimaginable healing and love, known to us as relationship with the Word of God made flesh, Jesus Christ.

About the Author
Sara D. Brouillet, Ph.D., is a mental health provider, corporate health care consultant, and writer who is thankful for her deep faith in God. Getting Back in the River emerged via a prompting to share how faith guides the process of mental and spiritual, and often medically associated healing of loss. Nine deaths of beloved family and friends reinforced for her the importance of grieving, the imperative of being well, and the desire to be present in life on what can be the most difficult part of one's journey. In her work with over 10,000 clients, Dr. Brouillet began to realize the presence of ungrieved loss in each person and its prevalence throughout the world. In multiple experiences of grieving death, she began to understand that a process emerges in which faith, mind, and emotions actually work together for healthy restitution of diverse relationships, the soul's healing of loss.
