Life Interrupted: Grief Recovery Guide and Workbook

Is your life joyless and you often wonder if it's worth the struggle?
When nighttime comes do you breathe a sigh of relief, thankful for a few hours of oblivion only to wake up and start the cycle all over?

If you answered yes to either question then Life Interrupted: Grief Recovery Guide and Workbook is the help you need. This faith-based book pinpoints nine stages of grieving including: denial, chaotic feelings, anger, hurt, guilt, depression, letting go, and saying farewell. It also includes commentaries and prompts to help readers respond to and process emotions.

Additionally, where most books on grieving end,Life Interrupted continues by offering hope and encouragement with a section titled, "Life Resumed", which focuses on three key areas:

  • Living in the Present

  • Discovering Your Passion

  • Planning for Your Future

  • Helping others (including children)

The author is well acquainted with devastating pain and loss as well as the joy that healing brings. God, always present in her life, became her anchor through her personal experiences with various tragedies including the loss of several family members and more recently 3 siblings in one year!

“I very much enjoyed your book. It is very insightful and has many good suggestions. I am glad to recommend it to our members.”


Richard W. (Grief Support Group Facilitator)


"After the tragic loss to my seven year old sister in a car accident I did not know how to cope with what I was feeling. A friend recommended “Life Interrupted: Grief Recovery Guide and Workbook” to me to help me better cope with the loss and it helped me immensely. I was able to write out my feelings and ultimately come up with some of the answers to questions like, “Why did she have to die instead of someone else?” This book is very encouraging. It helps organize thoughts and move on in life, while remembering the person that has been lost."


Alyssa R. (Reader, University Student)

This wonderful book really helps to heal and move on. I recommend it!"
