From the Author

You've experienced a loss and you're hurting. What do grieving hearts need, and where can we find it?

Let's be honest. We don't need another book full of lengthy chapters, heady language, and shallow pieces of advice. What we need are companions - people like us. We need other hurting, grieving hearts who understand and will walk with us. This helps us feel safe and gives us hope.

I've created one of those traveling companions in the pages of this book. I've called this new friend The Grieving Heart. Each chapter begins with the Grieving Heart speaking, sharing what they are feeling, thinking, and going through. Your heart will be touched. You'll know that someone "gets it." 

My goal is to meet you in your pain and walk with you there. As we journey together, our hearts will somehow begin to feel understood and safe. And as we experience a sense of safety, our hope will rise, and we will begin to heal.  

Let me be clear - I do not have all this figured out. I am a fellow struggler with you. Daily I deal with the repercussions of the deep losses I've experienced. I heal by putting my grief to work and serving others. This book is part of that.

We need comfort. We need safety, hope, and healing. We need companions. We need each other.

Read on, and lean into the comfort, safety, hope, and healing in the pages ahead.
