To most people, death is a heart-rending, mind-boggling, terrifying experience. However, according to the Bible, we should not be fearful or sorrowful at the departure of a loved one because physical death is not the end of life. While it is natural to mourn the departure of a loved one, there is a difference between mourning (which is a normal, temporary emotion), and grief (which is a demonic spirit of oppression). In this illuminating book, Dr. Moore exposes the subtle way that satan uses the death of a loved one to cause guilt, sorrow, depression and hopelessness. Dr. Moore also reveals the keys to overcoming these attacks of the enemy: - Know the difference between grief and mourning - Understand the biblical definition of death - Realize that God is not responsible for your loved one’s death - Learn how to walk in the peace of God - Allow the joy of the Lord to be your strength - Receive the comfort of the Holy Spirit - Embrace the new life that awaits you Your life is not over because your relationship is over, and when you discover how to overcome grief, disappointment and loss, you will realize that the best is yet to come!

This book is about fourteen women, some who will remain anonymous. Each has lost a child, either through early death, miscarriage, or abortion. Although these women are all from one church, these testimonies could come from many women across America. The central theme is not the loss of a child, but how God's grace and mercy brought comfort and healing to each mother. It is their prayer that those who have experienced such loss, including all the family members, will be comforted by the comfort they have received.

My book is a story of restoration; it is a memoir of my life, the journey of pain, loss, grief, life’s challenges, widowhood, and God’s intervention. It is a story of how at a young age my home was destroyed by divorce. My mother left home when I was only thirteen and died when I was eighteen from cancer; she was forty years old. At the time of her death, she was working as a nurse midwife in Saudi Arabia. My siblings and I had to live through the pain of a broken home, a loss of a mother, and the conflicts of three stepmothers. Most of my teenage years were filled with pain, not knowing who I was and not understanding what real happiness was. I married the first man I met to escape from my home; but not too long after my marriage, my husband died in a motor vehicle accident, and I became a widow at the age of twenty-three with a nine-month-old daughter. The African culture is hard on women. I went through the primitive traditions of the widowhood practices. I lost my self-esteem and self-worth, and I did not have the will to live. My life was slipping away, but by the grace of God, someone told me about Jesus, and at that moment I began my journey of transformation, restoration, and change. My book talks about my transition to a new country and how I started a new life, the challenges I encountered, acculturalization, the paradigm shifts, the problems of an immigrant, and the return to school to get an education. I talked about how I remarried, what we went through together, and where we are today. I am healed in my emotions to love again, and am walking in restoration. God used my pain and my healing process to open the door for me to help others in their time of grief. I wrote this book dedicated to my mother, to shed light on the havoc of a broken home, the widowhood practices in the African culture, and the unfair treatment of women. I want women to be empowered no matter their religion, ethnicity, social/economic status or race, who may have gone through a similar situation. I want them to keep hope alive, I want to let them know they have a voice, and I want to help women walk into a place of freedom through forgiveness. I want women to understand the depth of God’s love and how He can heal and change any situation.

Overcoming Loss is a photocopiable resource that addresses childrens' feeling of loss, which can arise from changing communities, schools, moving house, divorce or the death of a parent or grandparent. Children are limited to a vocabulary of broad emotions like 'happy', 'sad' and 'angry', and are often unable to articulate their grief in words. This can impair their long-term emotional development. The activities in Overcoming Loss use the power of play and creative arts to give the grieving child the language to identify subtle feelings, such as shame, despair and jealousy. Designed to encourage social and emotional learning, these exercises employ play, art and story-telling to access the ways in which children naturally express their feelings, and offers opportunities for parents and professionals to direct the child towards understanding their emotions. Parents, teachers, counsellors and anyone working with children between the ages of 4 and 8 who are dealing with a loss will find this resource a practical and effective tool.

For anyone who has experienced a significant loss, this wonderfully informative and accessible book is a guide to understanding and overcoming grief. The death of someone close -- a familiy member, spouse, or partner -- can result in feelings of overwhelming grief. At the same time, society unrealistically expects people to recover from grief as quickly as possible. I Can't Stop Crying looks at grieving as a painful but necessary process. The authors emphasize the importance of giving permission to grieve and suggest steps for rebuiliding life without the one who is gone. They also look at how such a loss affects relationships with family and friends, as well as lifestyle, work habits, and hopes for the future. The book includes an appendix with bereavement groups, resources, and other self-help organizations for grievers. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Life with the Akester takes you through the journey of a son when he loses his beloved father (Larry "Akester" Akley) very unexpectedly to a heart attack. Author Steve Akley takes us through the darkest emotions following this family tragedy and how he begins the healing process of grief in an unexpected way. The book is broken in to two distinct parts. The first part walks the reader through the process Steve went through told via first-person narrative. The reader sees the perspective of Steve who begins to establish his "new normal," as he states, via a series of happenstance events in his life. The second part of the book Steve savors the good times with his father by sharing some of the truly funny moments from his life. It was an ongoing family source of non-stop laughs to reiterate the unbelievable capers Steve's father got himself in. Whether it was bathroom humor, public humiliation or a completely head-scratching decision, the Akester always kept his family and friends in stitches with his hijinks. Prepare yourself to laugh out loud as you read the unique moments only the Akester could have gotten himself into! The end result is a loving tribute to a father by a son who can't have another moment with his father, but can relish his life by sharing his story.

Faces of Grief

Overcoming the Pain of Loss

Many books are written about grief: what it is and how to deal with it - but no loss is the same. The intensity of grief depends on many different factors. Grief varies between young and old and between cultures and religions, and depends on levels of existing dysfunction and on the nature of death (if the death was expected or sudden). It depends on previous experiences with death and attachment styles, and, of course, interpersonal factors play a very important role, as well. Grief also depends on the personality of the bereaved and the type of relationship the bereaved had with the deceased. Unprocessed emotions in that relationship, conflicts, repressed feelings, and unspoken words all come out in grief and weigh heavily upon a grieving person, often complicating recovery. In Faces of Grief, I share many stories of grief from my psychotherapy practice and explain how grief can be anticipatory, disenfranchised, or complicated. I also discuss the common myths about grief. All stories reveal the extensive work that the bereaved has to go through to enable them to come to terms with guilt, self-reproach, and the pain of grief. I also provide practical information on how to help yourself or your grieving loved one, how to talk to children about death and grief, and what not to say to a person who is grieving. This book will be useful for anyone going through bereavement and grief, and for those supporting them.
