Surviving Holidays While Grieving

Surviving the Holidays While Grieving by Janet K. Johnson, Will be Free to Download Tomorrow, November 22, 2022

FAITH NEWS SERVICE – United States—Monday, November 21, 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 dealing with 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 for 5 days from November 22 through November 26, 2022. Grief: The Unwanted Journey is highly recommended. Here’s what a couple of the reviewers have said:

Comfort during special times

“Janet K. Johnson’s book was written from her path through grieving for the loss of a brother, son, and parents. She provides an approach for healing even though “…not completely, but enough to live with joy again, experience new journeys, and find a new normal” in one’s life. I recommend this book if you know anyone who is on the journey of grieving. Ms. Johnson provides helpful advice to remember and celebrate a loved one during special holidays and ideas to create more memories. Although the title suggests a focus on the holidays, the gentle faith-based advice provides helpful ideas to honor your loved one and navigate the journey of grief throughout the year.”
