The review for today is “Grieving the Loss of a Loved One” by Kathe Wunnenberg. This book falls in the genre of religion, Christian life, death-grief and bereavement.
This book dives into what we can do when we experience a loss. The beginning has a section on where to turn to in the book for certain events that can evoke an emotion of a loss such as events that happened on New Year’s Day, Easter Sunday and even up to graduation. It tells you the page to find in the book. I thought that was helpful if you are looking for something quickly.
The book is divided into section that we go through when we experience a loss and a bit more such as :denying, venting, questioning, bargaining, crying, surrendering, accepting, praising, being ,celebrating, relating up to living. Each section is broken down into subsections or devotions as it is called that goes into what we go through during a loss. As someone who has experience loss on a few occasions it was like the book was written for me. The beginning of each devotion has a scripture that pertains to the topic at hand. At the end of the devotion is a small prayer that you can say to reach out to God for help.
There is also a section at the very end of each devotion that you can write your thoughts down on your journey for the grieving you are experiencing.
This is a really nice looking book the hard cover format. It is sturdy and designed lovely. It is a good reference for someone who might feel they are alone in their grief or feel no one understands. It has a bit of everything on the inside.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
