Publishers Description Every week there are members of your church who have experienced or are facing grief. Knowing what to do or how to help in these situations can be difficult. Pastors and church leaders are involved as supporters of the bereaved as they walk with persons through their grief. Grief affects everyone. "When Grief Breaks Your Heart" is an ideal resource for pastors, chaplains, other grief counselors, church leaders, and grief support groups to use and to give to those who have experienced a loss. Sadness, sorrow, disappointment, mourning, and grief are facts of life. People need help in knowing how to deal with grief, how to work through it, and how to grow because of it. In "When Grief Breaks Your Heart," best-selling author James W. Moore explores two major questions: What does faith say about the grief experience? How does faith help mend a broken heart? The book, therefore, is about grief and grace. Moore shows how these two words belong together: God s grace sustains people through the grief experience God s love supports people when they have nowhere else to turn God s grace brings the healing touch people so desperately need when their hearts are crushed. This book is appropriate for anyone who is experiencing grief. Pastors especially will find it helpful to keep a quantity on hand to give to people during grief experiences and grief counseling. Memorial booksare a lasting and fitting tribute to individual contributors who have honored their loved ones. See the Related Products Section below.

Grief is the normal response of sorrow, emotion, and confusion that comes from losing someone important to you. The word "grief" comes from the same root as "grave." Although many times focused only on emotional responses to loss, grief also has physical, cognitive, behavioral, social, and philosophical dimensions. Grief responses are influenced by personality, family, culture, and spiritual and religious beliefs and practices. While many who grieve may be able to work through their grief independently, accepting additional support from counseling and support groups may promote the process of healing. The Book of Ecclesiastes reminds us "For everything there is a season... a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance..."

Great Book for a Grieving Soul Nov 4, 1999
James Moore's book was a great comfort for me during the loss of my mother. I recommend this book to anyone who has lost a loved one. I am currently using this book in my own ministry as a pastor. This book is biblically based and full of inspiring scriptures that allows you to come to grip with losing someone dear to your heart.
