This is just what I needed after losing my husband a month ago. Going through the grief process is so hard and different for everyone. This book has helped me so much. I really thought I was going crazy until I started reading this. It ties in scripture a little bit but not too much. Every day is different, it pin points on all the aspects of the grieving process. I bought it on my Nook and I my only complaint is that I can't get the type size to enlarge. Makes it hard to see. Can't figure it out!

This book has nice short chapters with short quotes in each one. It is great to know that different things that I do and feelings that I have at times is normal and that others have the same feelings or things happening with them during their grief process. It has very helpful as a resource and reference during my most difficult times and does not need to be read in sequence, you can pick and choose chapters for help when you need it! I have worn out the edges of my book and it comforts me a lot.

I was fortunate to have been given this book when my mother died. I don't know how I would have survived without it. It was tremendously helpful to learn that what I was feeling was normal. The scripture references are understated and not at all preachy. I have given this book to many grieving friends in the years since it was first given to me.

After I lost my wife in an airplane crash, this book helped me regain my sanity and equilibrium. Recovery would have been much tougher without this book. I have given it to other friends who have lost a loved one and have received many thanks for sending them the book because it helped them.

A dear friend gave me a copy of this book when my husband died. It was a tremendous help for me with the grieving process. Whatever I read was exactly what I needed at that particular time. Even 7 years later, I still pull it out on occasion to help ease the pain as I continue to adjust to my loss. It also reminds me of how far I have come. I can't remember the number of books I have given away in hopes that it will help others as it has helped me. As a matter of fact, I am writing this review as I am preparing to order more books to bless others. I highly recommend it!

When my Daddy died, I went to the bookstore and pulled every book on grief off the shelf. This is the one I kept and bought and it helped me get through some very tough days. Afterwards, I found out that my church used this book in a grief class! I highly recommend this book and have bought many copies for others.

A friend gave me this book when my dad died and I found it so encouraging and helpful that I have given at least a dozen copies away to other friends who have lost family members. Most have them have said they appreciated the book. Helps in coping with grief or recognizing feelings or reactions that you have. Short readings are easy to read but very good!!
