Experiencing Grief by Norm Wright - tiny but great book recommended by our church's spiritual care pastor.
Please add Life after Grief, choosing the path of healing by Rebecca Hayford Bauer; Grace for the Widow, a journey through the fog of loss, by Joyce Rogers; Though I Walk Through the Valley by Vance Havner and This Life I Live by Rory Feek.
This week I read a children's book that is well done by Christine Harder Tangvald called Someone I love died. Also found this book on our church library shelf and I started reading it; How to handle grief, Tracks of a Fellow Struggler by John Claypool. I also found this book by Paul W. Powell, Death from the other side, Your Ministry to the Bereaved. I am reading Nancy Guthrie's book Hearing Jesus Speak into your Sorrow and found it to be excellent. The small purple book Prayers for Difficult Times-women's edition by Barbour Publishing Company makes a meaningful gift. I have seen it at Wal-Mart. Many of the books I have listed are small in size and are easy to handle. For some reason that helps me right now. Blessings.
Recently at Life Way I found the following books I want to add to the list of books on grief. Grieving God's Way: the path to lasting hope and healing by Margaret Brownley; Grief: Walking with Jesus by Bob Kellemen, and a Grief Share devotional Through a Season of Grief by Bill Dunn and Kathy Leonard. These are the same devotionals that,by signing up, can be received in your daily e-mails for one year.
