Part of the Living With Hope series

Description

Discover hope, comfort, transformation--the gifts given in griefToo often, we think of loss like we might a broken bone.

We leave the bone alone, protect it from bumps, and wait.

We think eventually everything will go back to normal, the same as it always was.

But losing a loved one is nothing like a broken arm.

Loss is amputation, and the path to healing doesnAt lead back to the same, only ahead to the different.

A Grief Received offers a personal, authentic, and practical approach to weathering grief with hope.

Writing with deep insight, JL Gerhardt draws on the loss of her younger brother when she was twenty-one, other personal experiences of grief, and her work in ministry alongside her husband, a minister and chaplain.

Through nine practices grieving people can adopt to position themselves to receive the gifts of grief, Gerhardt provides touchstones readers will recognize and a path to personal transformation.

Each chapter includes personal reflection questions and suggested resources.

Gerhardt assumes the role of friend, partner, and speaker of sometimes-inconvenient but always-helpful truths.

Readers will walk away comforted, directed, and inspired to seek God and God's shaping in their grief.
