Aftermath Growing in Grace Through Grief Book Review

 

 

~Aftermath Growing in Grace Through Grief~

By Margaret McSweeney


Loss is a four-letter word that grips our hearts and gridlocks our lives. Grief can hold us captive until we surrender it to God.

How do we find the necessary grace to journey through the mourning process? Juxtaposed to the outpouring of her mother’s words about grief, the author shares her parallel journey from the emotional abyss of grief after becoming an adult orphan. With candor, the author shares her own emotions experienced along the spectrum of loss after her parents’ deaths: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance—adding interactive options for readers.

 

Five sections cover these common emotions and provide~


• Comfort Scripture lists

• Counsel sections from grief experts

• Chronicling sections with detailed helps

• Tangible handles on dealing with grief during holidays, capturing loved ones’ legacy, and more.

 

Losing someone can be really hard,and sometimes it gets to be too much and you just don't know where to turn. That was my case,as I have lost all 3 of my immediate family members in the last 5 years,and to say that I hurt would be a understatement. Reading this book was just what I needed. As I sat reading it, I couldn't believe how close to home it hit. It took me to all the stages that I went through {and still do}and I learned that it is OK for me to be angry and hurt at times. As that is also part of my grieving process. I have referred back to this book many times, as there were so many  in this book. Margaret is a very good author,this is the first time that I have read a book from her. I would recommend this book to all,as no matter what we all have to deal with grief in our family and this book will help through it easier.
