Is there a right way for Christians to grieve? Is God truly enough in the valley of the shadow of death? Does time really heal all wounds? In finding her way through her own grief, Kim Thomas asks thought-provoking questions and comes to know the sorrow and compassion of God in a way that is immediate, intimate, and soul-soothing. "God has been attentive to my mourning. He has been ever close, close enough to catch my tears in a bottle as they fall from my eyes. I wonder if perhaps the bottle of my tears might sit on the shelf next to the tears Jesus wept..." If you are experiencing grief or are close to someone who is, you will find in Kim's story an honest admission about the pain of loss. She also offers 30 days of reflections from Scripture that provide hope based on the tender and powerful love of God for those who have known heartache and are making their way through it.

When a loved one dies it can seem like life will never be normal again. The world can become a blur of flowers, relatives, cards, and well-meaning visitors; and the griever may feel that he or she cannot come up for air. But there is normalcy after death, say authors Zonnebelt-Smeenge and De Vries; it just takes some time--and help--to get there. Traveling through Grief takes readers on the journey toward life after death, focusing on five common tasks of grief: accepting the reality of death, embracing all the emotions associated with death, storing memories, separating oneself from the deceased, and reinvesting fully in one's own life. This book is the perfect gift for a grieving friend or tool for a loved one in need.

Readers will feel the author’s pain and will identify with his humanity. The Epilogue to the book offers fifteen lessons that will help readers on their journey through grief. The book is also a story of a remarkable love relationship. It has laugh-out-loud humor in the midst of pain. Readers will feel they are in the presence of a friend who “really knows” what grief is like. * * * * * * * “I simply cannot imagine a better portrayal of love between two people, written through pain, in homage to a loved one. If anyone wants to know about love and the feelings associated with its loss, these pages serve as an example. The book is a roadmap of how to honor the love, revisit it in grief and begin sorting out the feelings of loss . . . This is very heartfelt, powerful material.” Mike Foley, Writer’s Review.
