This spiritual companion for mourners affirms their need to mourn and invites them to journey through their very unique and personal grief. Detailed are the six needs that all mourners must yield to and eventually embrace if they are to go on to find continued meaning in life and living, including the need to remember the deceased loved one and the need for support from others. Short explanations of each mourning need are followed by brief, spiritual passages that, when read slowly and reflectively, help mourners work through their unique thoughts and feelings. Also included in this revised edition are journaling sections for mourners to write out their personal responses to each of the six needs. This replaces 1879651114.

A well written collection of poetry and journalings about the grief of a young woman, and her very real, inspiring journey through that grief. Of how she came to realize exactly that, it was a journey. That the grief she suffered was so much more than the loss of a loved one, it was the loss of faith...the loss of a way of life...and the discovery that you can live beyond it. Grief in one form or another is an inevitable journey that each person will go through at one stage or other on this road called life. It is the author's hope that this book help people along their 'road'. To perhaps help them find words they struggle to find and voice emotions they hold deep inside. That maybe, the lessons she has learned will help them not only through their grief, but beyond it.
Toward the end of 2012, just over three years after my Mum passed away, the depth of my grief began to surface, and once again, I 'found my pen'. Following is a 'Journey'. It is a mixed journey, like a stormy sea, tossing to and fro.

When a loved one dies it can seem like life will never be normal again. The world can become a blur of flowers, relatives, cards, and well-meaning visitors; and the griever may feel that he or she cannot come up for air. But there is normalcy after death, say authors Zonnebelt-Smeenge and De Vries; it just takes some time--and help--to get there. Traveling through Grief takes readers on the journey toward life after death, focusing on five common tasks of grief: accepting the reality of death, embracing all the emotions associated with death, storing memories, separating oneself from the deceased, and reinvesting fully in one's own life. This book is the perfect gift for a grieving friend or tool for a loved one in need.
We want to say a word that may have some healing power and to cast a vision of a life that can be fulfilling and rewarding again once a person has completed their journey through grief. Reading a book on grief can be difficult because ...
