Help through the mourning process using self-healing methods. How do you make sense of loss and tragedy?

It is a tangible and personal self-healing method for whatever obstacles arise; a unique, new wellness tool for healing and self-discovery. The Name Work also includes: • Affirmations, self-guided questions, meditations, and practices • An A-Z dictionary of qualities to help create your own affirmations • Life hacks for addictive behaviors and moving though trauma and loss • A first-hand account of the author’s personal healing journey If you benefited from books like Finding Meaning, It’s OK That You’re Not OK, or Healing After Loss, then you’ll be inspired by Giving Grief Meaning.

Grieving with Hope by Samuel J IV Hodges,Kathy Leonard Summary

Practical and straightforward, yet warm and compassionate, Grieving with Hope clarifies the popular misconception that people move through stages of grief. This will be an encouragement to many, as grieving people often think something is wrong with them when their grief doesn't proceed neatly through stages. The reality is that grieving people jump back and forth between different emotions, sometimes wrestling with multiple emotions at once. This book is packed with short, biblically based, gospel-centered, topical chapters addressing the issues grieving people face but are often hesitant to mention to others. It helps readers accurately interpret the message their emotions are sending them and gently guides them to determine whether they're grieving in a way that leads to hope and ultimate healing. Developed from interviews with over 30 well-respected Christian counselors, teachers, and authors, as well as numerous personal testimonies, Grieving with Hope helps the bereaved discover how hope and peace are available amidst their heartache and pain.

Bearing the Unbearable by Joanne Cacciatore Summary

If you love, you will grieve—and nothing is more mysteriously central to becoming fully human. When a loved one dies, the pain of loss can feel unbearable—especially in the case of a traumatizing death that leaves us shouting, “NO!” with every fiber of our body. The process of grieving can feel wild and nonlinear—and often lasts for much longer than other people, the nonbereaved, tell us it should. Organized into fifty-two short chapters, Bearing the Unbearable is a companion for life’s most difficult times, revealing how grief can open our hearts to connection, compassion, and the very essence of our shared humanity. Dr. Joanne Cacciatore—bereavement educator, researcher, Zen priest, and leading counselor in the field—accompanies us along the heartbreaking path of love, loss, and grief. Through moving stories of her encounters with grief over decades of supporting individuals, families, and communities—as well as her own experience with loss—Cacciatore opens a space to process, integrate, and deeply honor our grief. Not just for the bereaved, Bearing the Unbearable will be required reading for grief counselors, therapists and social workers, clergy of all varieties, educators, academics, and medical professionals. Organized into fifty-two accessible and stand-alone chapters, this book is also perfect for being read aloud in support groups.

“Compassionate, poignant, and practical. . . . Transcending Loss will be a great blessing on your lifetime journey of recovery.”—Harold Bloomfield, MD, psychiatrist and author of How to Survive the Loss of Love and How to Heal Depression Death doesn’t end a relationship, it simply forges a new type of relationship—one based not on physical presence but on memory, spirit, and love. There are many wonderful books available that address acute grief and how to cope with it. But they often focus on crisis management and imply that there is an "end" to mourning, and fail to acknowledge grief’s ongoing impact and how it changes through the years. “This is a book about death and grief, yes, but more important, it is a book about love and hope. I have learned from my experience and interviews with courageous people about pain, struggle, resiliency, and meaning. Their stories show over time, you can learn to transcend even in spite of the pain.”—from the introduction by Ashley Davis Bush, LCSW

Prayer Against Untimely Death by Tella Olayeri Summary

Untimely death has caused disaster to families and nations at large. Bread winners, loved ones, and people loaded with talents often lose their lives before they know it. The agony is much if weighed on scale. It is high time we put check on wicked spirits behind such acts. It is time to say, "Thou spirit behind sudden death your cup is full, surrender and disappear from the corridor of my life." What stories have we not heard? Kidnappers terrorize lives on a daily basis. News of disaster of different dimensions never seizes. Loss of lives as a result of motor accident is rampant. Witchcraft and wizards are finding it comfortable to kill and maim captives. The cause of untimely death is on and on, and on. Life is no longer safe, as untimely death has taken grip of society. This book stands out to give both practical and spiritual remedy to this nonsense. It builds hope against sudden death and keys to destroy terrors of life. This can be achieved through case studies, and loaded prayer points vomited by the Holy Spirit in this book.

Special chapters advise how to comfort a friend whose loved one died in a catastrophic event; how to acknowledge your friend's grief on holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries; and how to reassure and console young children.
