The Good Grief Devotional Excerpt :

A wise, honest companion for the journey through grief Whether you are struggling with your own grief or walking with a friend or family member who is grieving, you know the journey is not smooth or straightforward. The Good Grief Devotional offers wise, honest companionship to those who are struggling with the death of a loved one, a divorce, the loss of a job, or another major life transition. Pastor Brent D. Christianson's fifty-two devotions follow the ten stages of grief outlined in Granger Westberg's helpful book Good Grief, published in 1968. Millions of people have found in it validation for their grief, understanding of their feelings, and a way to live through grief and into a new reality. Christianson begins each stage with a reflection on that aspect of grief and then considers what the stage means for the reader's self-understanding and relationships with other people, creation, and God. Each devotion ends with questions to think about and talk about with another person, healing actions one might take, and a prayer. The Good Grief Devotional provides pastoral care, faces the reality of loss, and points the way to hope. Readers will want to return to this collection year after year as they are changed by their journey.

I Will Carry You Excerpt :

In 2008, Angie Smith and her husband Todd (lead singer of the group Selah) learned through ultrasound that their fourth daughter had conditions making her “incompatible with life.” Advised to terminate the pregnancy, the Smiths chose instead to carry this child and allow room for a miracle. That miracle came the day they met Audrey Caroline and got the chance to love her for the precious two-and-a-half hours she lived on earth. Upon receiving the original diagnosis, Angie started a blog (Bring the Rain) to keep family and friends informed of their journey. Soon, the site exploded in popularity, connecting with thousands who were either experiencing their own heartbreaking situations or simply curious about how God could carry someone through something so tragic. I Will Carry You tells the powerful story of a parent losing her child, interwoven with the biblical story of Lazarus to help those who mourn to still have hope—to find grace and peace in the sacred dance of grief and joy. Endorsement "This is a beautiful and tender book that would touch any woman's heart, no matter her age or realm of experience. It is about a relationship so intimate with God that it carves a safe place for crises of faith, for faith proved genuine and for divine callings willed, sealed and fulfilled. Yes, this is one mother's moving story. This one mother also happens to be a true writer. We will hear more from her. Angie, I am so proud of you. May Christ continue to tip the ink jar toward your gifted quill." - Beth Moore Best-selling author and speaker

100 Days of Grief Excerpt :

Daily Devotional and Three Month Grief Journal "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." -Matthew 5:4 What happens when your loved ones die? Death happens to everyone. We are all affected by the grief at one point or another. This seven day christian grief work devotional uses biblical stories and references to help you understand what the bible says about death, and your own feelings associated with the loss. Grief Work Diaries and Grief Work Journals are a recommended coping tool for exploring the grief cycle and emotions that arise after the loss of a loved one. When completed, grief diaries tell the story of daily life through the cycle of grieving, forever giving you a written account from your perspective.. Grief journals and diaries allow you to not only express the feelings that arise after death and loss, but to review your progress through the stages of grief. You need to take time to pause, reflect, and focus on yourself. It is important to express any feelings you may have during the grieving process. Grief work journals and grief work diaries allow you to record thoughts, emotions, and feelings that otherwise may be lost or overlooked. Death and loss can cause intense emotions. Many report feeling relieved or more at peace after expressing these feelings in a grief journal. Reflection through the process of grief is important. Reflecting on a previous state of mind allows you to understand how far you have come. The grief cycle is not always a fluid process, which makes frequent reflection all that more important. It is important to note the changes in mindset and yourself through your writing. ____________________________________ The Daily Grief Work Devotional features: - The Seven Stages Of Grief Daily Devotional - Personal Entry Areas - Reflection Questions The three (3) month Deluxe Grief Work Journal features: - Daily Mood Tracker - Daily Positive and Negative Tracker - Daily Entry area - Thought Provoking Questions - Monthly Revi
