Download and read online Grieving with Hope in PDF and EPUB 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.

Filled with stories of hope and profound confidence in life after life, Walking in Grace with Grief includes many practical skills such as grounding to the earth and "filling in" with life-force energy. The easy to follow meditations provide comfort and nurturing for anyone dealing with loss. Message from the author: I offer my story to you as a way of reaching my hand out to yours. To touch you, to offer you comfort and presence. When I lost my loved one, I felt so many different things: shock, sadness, sorrow, and grace. I was more alive in some respects than I had ever felt before. I experienced sorrow; a deep, fathomless sadness; grief; love; acceptance; compassion; and happiness-yes happiness-all at once. I knew deep within my soul that my son's Spirit lived on. He had left his body, but he was alive as a Spirit. This profound acceptance and belief were the keys, I believe, to my ability to grieve in a different manner from many others. I want to share with you how I walked this path of sorrow and acceptance-not to tell you how you should do it, but to offer you thoughts on how to lessen the pain as you walk your path. Many blessings, Della
