FAITH NEWS SERVICE – United States—Thursday, November 24, 2022
Janet Johnson is eager to present the re-launch of her book Surviving the Holidays While Grieving.
Janet wrote Surviving the Holidays While Grieving for both those who have experienced grief and loss and those who know someone who has experienced loss to help them survive the holidays.
Having endured the significant amount of profound loss of love ones, she understands grief brings a multitude of emotions. Each day can be a battle to keep unpredictable emotions under control—especially around holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, which can bring losses into full focus. Even simple tasks, such as walking through a store during the holidays, can surface memories that turn on emotions like a light switch.
Janet comes alongside readers who have lost a loved one or are journeying with someone offering hope through grief. With tenderness and compassion, she offers ideas for managing emotions, hands-on activities for expressing feelings in tangible ways, and tips for communicating those feelings to others.
Janet K. Johnson’s Surviving the Holidays While Grieving will be free and available for download on Amazon through November 26, 2022. Grief: The Unwanted Journey is highly recommended. Here’s what a couple of the reviewers have said:
Simple, heartfelt, practical
