"Grief is like a long valley, a winding valley where any bend may reveal a totally new landscape."
Lorene Duquin, a renowned grief counselor was no stranger to understanding and explaining grief, and had helped many people work through it.
But when she lost her mother she found herself living in an entirely new space.
Grieving the Loss of a Loved One contains 52 powerful, one-page meditations that will help you work through the various aspects of grieving as they did for Lorene herself. The meditations are wide-ranging: they are deeply personal, but yet they address the emotional, physical, mental, spiritual, and social aspects of grief. Rooted in prayer, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and conveying important life lessons, each meditation features:
• A quote from a well-known figure that speaks to the meditation
• A brief reflection that expands upon the topic at hand
• A prayer
• Sidebar with a timely quote or anecdote
Walk hand in hand with Lorene and experience the gift of a companion who can walk this painful walk at your side, through this unknown territory, where each passing day seems to reveal a new dimension of pain, loss, confusion but eventually transforms to healing and peace.
