📒A Season Of Grief ✍ Bill Valentine
📝A Season of Grief Book Synopsis : This unique book celebrates a long-term, interracial relationship and details the everyday struggles of a surviving partner trying to carry on in a radically changed world. A Season of Grief chronicles the author's emotional descent after the violent death of his partner of 21 years. Bill Valentine's journal of fear, anger, denial, and loneliness captures the glimmers of hope, moments of serendipity, and mysterious coincidences that emerged from his full-time devotion to grief following the death of Joe Lopes. Lopes died along with 264 others when American Airlines Flight 587 crashed in November 2001 in route to the Dominican Republic. It was the second deadliest accident in U.S. aviation history. He is a word always on my lips as I try to work him into a conversation. He is a memory that I strive to keep alive. So yes, in this sense, he is not gone. But in reality, he is. He is gone as my lover. He is gone as my life partner. He is gone as my soul mate, the only person to whom I periodically bared my soul. He is gone as my best friend, the only person to whom I ever attached that label. So pardon me while I still hang on to the notion that he is not here with me. Pardon me while I cling stubbornly to the insistence that he is gone. Valentine's candid and thoughtful account of his heartbreaking efforts to make sense of his partner's death—and survive in a world without him—is by turns, funny, frightening, sobering, and surprising. In the nine months following the tragedy of Flight 587, Valentine finds every waking moment of his life affected by his partner's absence—from mundane household chores to major life decisions. A Season of Grief is a story told in darkness and light, of hurt and healing, love and loneliness, but mostly, of a man who learns to live with his partner's absence through the persistent, surprising evidence of his presence. Our job on earth is to live with uncertainty, ambiguity, and hope. We are given a limited tool set but one, in my opinion, that's sufficient for the job. Sufficient to allow us to be engaged in life-to love, grieve, work, play, celebrate, and despair. We have a remarkable ability to rebound and grow. We have been granted the capacity for wonder and laughter—especially at ourselves. These last two gifts were bestowed generously on Joe and he, in turn, taught me how vital they are. Making a strong case for gay marriage, A Season of Grief chronicles Valentine's struggles to be recognized as a surviving spouse, including a historic lawsuit with Lambda Legal Defense and Education fund against the New York State Workers Compensation Board. Valentine and Lopes took every conceivable step to formalize their relationship, including New York City Domestic Partnership, but the Workers Compensation Board and a New York State appeals court refused to recognize Valentine as a legal surviving spouse. Grief doesn't come with a set of instructions. But A Season of Grief can help guide you through the lonely journey that follows the death of a loved one. Valentine's memoir is a testament to the healing power of reality and the enduring nature of love.
📒Grieving With Hope ✍ Samuel J IV Hodges
📝Grieving with Hope Book Synopsis : 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.

📒Winter Of The Heart ✍ Paula D'Arcy
📝Winter of the Heart Book Synopsis : We can't really prepare for grief. The only experts on grief are those who have survived it and then helped others do the same. Retreat leader, former psychotherapist, and bestselling author Paula D’Arcy is one of those experts. In Winter of the Heart, she shares her life’s work, accompanying you through seasons of grief and the emotions that come with the loss of a loved one or after other major changes in life. Winter of the Heart is a companion for anyone early in grieving process—for the person experiencing shock, emotional pain, an inability to move, guilt, intense anger, and a range of other emotions that might be new to you. D’Arcy lost her young husband and toddler in a violent car accident more than four decades ago. She understands your grief and can also help you look to what’s on the other side—hope, acceptance, recognition that what you are experiencing is both common and unique, and the essential counsel that you need not ever "get over it." Winter of the Heart is for those who mourn the death of a loved one, but it is also for counselors and pastoral ministers. You’ll find D'Arcy's words relevant for other occasions when mourning can be painful, including the end of a marriage, job loss, and other major life changes.
📒My Seasons Of Grief ✍ K. R. McMahon
📝My Seasons of Grief Book Synopsis : NEW THING I am a rarity in this modern world, in this ‘Quantum Age’, now, in the sea of life, we all have yachts with a spare engine and a jet ski. We like to keep moving, to duck and weave, to crawl if we can’t walk, or to run in every other instance, we move, our culture, society, economy, media, ecology, our whole way of life, here in the West at least, has been centered around the notion that we always ought to be moving, full of motion sickness, this feeling, the feeling of moving (simulated to perfection by our greatest creation; the automobile), this allows us to know that we are in fact alive, and not dead, but I believe there is a further ‘benefit’, that this constant motion allows for us to ignore another of the more serious, life defining questions, what are we rushing towards? Where does this treadmill ultimately lead? The answer is the same for all of us, sick, healthy, fat, bald, ugly, short, accomplished, home-wreckers, murderers, free men; ultimately we will all die. Kevin Ross McMahon 11/19/1984 – 6/29/2013 Encourage each other in my death with calls to go ‘farther up, and farther in’ in this life, so that you are prepared for the next as best you can. Alright, that’s hardly all I have, but still it must suffice I fear. Peace, joy and delightful things to you all. Love, always; Ross

📒Your Healing Journey Through Grief ✍ Stanley Cornils
📝Your Healing Journey Through Grief Book Synopsis : This book enables readers to translate knowledge into action. Grief is not a disease that needs to be cured, but an experience that can be worked through by following a normal, natural mourning process, which if properly dealt with and completed, can result in a resourceful and constructive outcome so that a person can recover from loss and life can go on. The loss of a spouse or other special loved one is the most difficult and challenging experience of a person's life and unresolved grief can last a lifetime. This book is a tool that can be used to learn how to survive loss. Stanley Cornils believes a person can do more than just survive a loss, he believes they can go on to lead a fulfilling life. During the course of his studies, Stanley Cornils discovered that grieving people go through similar phases and have certain problems in common: The shock and numbness that stunned them when they learned of their loved one's death, the denial of what happened, the dreadful and horrendous suffering during the first few months, the inability to accept the loss, the loneliness of having to adjust to life without their loved one, dealing with anger and guilt, the dread that comes with the approach of a holiday season, a birthday, or anniversary, dealing with money matters, and trying to get their lives back on a normal track. This book will help people understand that what they are experiencing is normal, and it's okay to cry and be angry, even with God. People do not drown because they fall into the water; they drown because they do not fight back in an effort to save themselves. After many years of performing funeral services and observing the suffering of grieving families, Stanley Cornils asked himself, 'Isn't there something more I can do for these people?' As a result, he developed his Grief Recovery Seminars and has presented them for the past twenty years. 'Your Healing Journey Through Grief' represents the culmination of
