Chapter 4 is a great tool for people who are supporting the bereaved. Often times, people say the wrong things in a time of loss. The intent comes from a great place, however, the impact can be damaging for the griever. I love how author Gwendolyn Burton, gives practical advice on phrases that can be used when speaking with someone who is mourning. This book is such an easy read, although the topic is heavy. Gwendolyn has found a way to weave in practical examples, expert opinions, and personal stories to give readers quite a toolbox for not only going through the process of grief but also supporting those close to them who may be going through it. I am very thankful that this content has awakened the desire for me to “return back to a place of emotional and physical calm” as I am on my grief journey.
5.0 out of 5 stars Important information regarding grief.

I liked the sensitive candor the author used through out the book. Loved, loved, loved the “moving forward” component part of the book. Plus, how impacting grief can be to our faith walk. The title gets your attention by giving you something to think about. I used the book for a tool how it speaks to the realness of my own loss of a child, parents, and love ones., and for professional and ministry use. The book will definitely be a part of my grief tool kit.
