“Our culture fails to show us how to grieve. Just look at any company’s employee handbook. Three days of bereavement for a death in the family? No, grief isn’t a box to be checked. We never get over it. Every loss is new sorrow layered atop all the others. So, who teaches us to grieve, let alone brings much-needed solace? Thankfully, the answer is in your hand. The chapters in this book offer treasures of comfort, encouragement, strength, joy and peace. Buy a copy for yourself, and other copies for loved ones and friends. They will be deeply blessed, and so will you.”
