In Grieving Godís Way, Margaret Brownley has created a book that will help all who read it whether they have faith, have lost faith, are questioning faith, or just do not know that faith exists. She does this by divulging what she herself experienced and what it took to bring her back into a healed state.
The book is broken down into sections beginning with "healing the grieving body," in which the recommendations range from writing how you feel down and letting memory comfort you to healing through play. The next section tackles "healing the grieving soul," which encourages diary writing, being creative, and listening to music. Then there is "healing the grieving heart," which includes the joy/pain of family photos, the art of courage, and finding sacred moments. The final section focuses on "healing the grieving spirit" by learning to hope again, making attitude adjustments, and counting your blessings.
This is a book which will become precious to anyone going through the grieving process. It is full of gentle suggestions that, while focused on God, do not try to put forth a specific religious conviction. This book truly can comfort anyone from the devout to the doubting.
I recommend buying Grieving Godís Way to keep on your library shelf for the inevitability of having to face the death of a loved one. Buy some extra copies to give to friends when they face the ultimate goodbye with those they love.
It is not often that a book comes along that the outcome of reading it can improve the quality of the readerís life. Grieving Godís Way is such a book.
