Reviews - What do customers think about Seasons of Grief and Healing?
Gift for the grieving soul Jan 7, 2007
I purchased this book for a friend grieving the loss of her husband. We live across the country and I could not be with her. She said this book is the first with encouragement that she can grieve in her own way on her own schedule. The book is written from a spirit of caring and does not suggest what steps to go through when. The message that "it's in your own time and your own schedule" is precious to her.
Hard times made easier Mar 3, 2002
I ordered this book and have ended up giving it away to dear friends. It is perfect to replace the "SYMPATHY" card which often has briefly written comfort words that don't comfort. This book has so many thoughts to let the grieving know they are not alone, and that healing can be ahead. It goes through the seasons of grief and loss. I hope someone will send me one of these book when my turn comes to hurt rather than a card and flowers. I am glad there are comforters who write and understand.
Sensitive and compassionate Jan 23, 2001
-but more than that the entire book has a tone of respect, a reverence for life that rings very true. This book has been a gift to myself and my family. Unlike "Pop" psychology guides that might put someone "in their heads"(and out of their feelings), this is an artfully crafted piece that speaks to the heart and soul. Reading this feels like a visit with a wise old friend.
Mr. Miller has included profound quotes, from Helen Keller to Shakespeare, and also from the Bible. His collection of wisdom is from such varied sources that even this works for the reader in that it is apparent and comforting - that wisdom, like grief, cuts across time,gender,and social circumstance. It is wonderfully human. If you have a heartbeat you'll get this.
