Overview

The Widower's Toolbox: Repairing Your Life After Losing Your Spouse by G. J. Schaefer

The death of a spouse has a powerful impact on the widowed partner's life. However, there is a very distinct difference in the way males and females mourn the losses of loved ones. Most men work hard to keep their grief to themselves, maintain stoic emotional control and refrain from asking others for help.

The Widower's Toolbox: Repairing Your Life After Losing Your Spouse is a compassionate guide that equips the nearly half-million widowers who lose their wives annually with the tools to deal effectively with their sorrow and tackle the important tasks and issues surrounding the deaths of spouses. Author Gerald J. Schaefer shares his own personal experiences recovering and nurturing two sons after living through, coping with and ultimately healing from the pain of losing his beloved wife. Schaefer and expert grief counselor Tom Bekkers provide a take-action approach, reaching out to men in mourning around the globe by presenting over forty activities to pilot widowers through the process of bereavement:

Picking Up the Pieces

Healing From Within

Giving Back to Others

Loving Again

This insightful, inspiring book channels men's grief into constructive tasks and supplies the tools that will enable bereaved husbands to recreate fulfilling lives.

I found this book to be very helpful because it gave me a number of ideas to help me get my life on track again. Grocery shopping tips and trading help for help in return, helped a lot. It then goes on to show me how I could get a feeling of purpose again in my life by helping others with the lessons I learned through my loss. The author explains the differences on how men and women grieve and I found that interesting and true from my viewpoint. Highly reccommend for a man or a woman who loses a spouse.
