Traveling Through Grief

Susan Zonnebelt-SmeengeRobert De Vries

Traveling through Grief takes readers on the journey toward life after death, focusing on five common tasks of grief. A perfect gift for a grieving friend.When a loved one dies it can seem like life will never be normal again. Whether grieving the loss of a child, spouse, parent, sibling, or friend, it may feel like there is no end to the road of grief you have been forced to take. These authors have been there, and in Traveling through Grief they provide concrete ways to help you or someone you know through this difficult time."It is refreshing to find a resource that has both a strong spiritual component as well as an abundance of practical and useful suggestions for the grief journey. This is a welcomed resource."--H. Norman Wright, grief and trauma counselor

"In a culture that prefers grievers 'get over it' and 'move on' as quickly as possible, two authors, well acquainted with grief, challenge such thinking. You will find grief-changing wisdom on every page: wisdom that can help you and can help friends and family members traveling through grief."--Harold Ivan Smith, grief educator, author of Grieving the Death of a Friend

"The dynamic duo has given us yet another fine book by grabbing hold of the fracturing impact of grief. This book will inform, equip, comfort, shield, nudge, and hug you."--Richard B. Gilbert, executive director, the World Pastoral Care CenterSusan Zonnebelt-Smeenge is a licensed clinical psychologist working for Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services.

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.
