Learn from the Experience of Others

Losing a loved one is painful. Life will never be the same.And if this wasn’t hard enough, the holidays are bearing down upon you. What in the world are you supposed to do?

You need a grief survival kit designed for the holidays. That’s why I wrote Surviving the Holidays without You: Navigating Grief During Special Seasons.

As a hospice chaplain, I’ve had the honor of walking with thousands of hurting people through deep, dark valleys of grief. From my personal grief experiences and theirs, I’ve gathered some tools that can help you not only survive the holidays, but heal and grow through them.

Even though these holidays will be different, they can still be good – very good.

A Holiday Survival Kit

In Surviving the Holidays without You, you’ll discover the answers to these questions:

• Why are the holidays so hard?
• How can I manage my own and others’ expectations?
• Is it possible for holidays to be good this year? How?
• Sometimes I feel misunderstood, judged, and alone. How do I handle that?
• How can I grieve and celebrate at the same time?
• I need to make wise choices about what to do, when, and with whom. How do I do that?
• I don’t know how to move on. What does moving on look like?
• How can I use the holidays to grieve well, honor my loved one, and love others?

Give yourself the gift of navigating grief well this holiday season. You’ll be glad you did.

 

When it comes to grief, Gary is sincerely empathetic. His writing is personal, compassionate, and very practical. I know that this book will help many during the holidays.
