Is your life joyless and you often wonder if it's worth the struggle?

When nighttime comes do you breathe a sigh of relief, thankful for a few hours of oblivion only to wake up and start the cycle all over?

If you answered yes to either question, then "Life Interrupted: Grief Recovery Guide and Workbook" is the help you need. This faith-based book pinpoints 9 stages of grieving: denial, chaotic feelings, anger, hurt, guilt, depression, letting go, saying farewell.

And where most books on grieving end, "Life Interrupted" continues by offering hope and encouragement with a section titled, Life Resumed, that focuses on 3 key areas:

  • Living in the Present
  • Discovering Your Passion
  • Planning for Your Future
  • Helping others (including children)

The author is well acquainted with devastating pain and loss as well as the joy that healing brings. God, always present in her life, became her anchor through her personal experiences with various tragedies including the loss of several family members and more recently 3 siblings in one year!

Paulina has a master's degree in Rehabilitation Counseling. She has worked with youth and families in various capacities including crisis intervention. She currently conducts "Healing from Loss" workshops and shares her story on a variety of platforms by way of offering hope and encouragement.
