Thriving Through Seasons of Grief Book Excerpt:

Grief has been one of my best teachers. No one signs up for this process that will touch all of us at some time in our life. After the death of my late husband of thirty years, I knew I was not exempt from the process and yet, if I had to go through it, I did not want to waste the pain. I quickly discovered that many people did not know much about the grief process or talk about it. I share in a transparent and down to earth way, that is easy for those who find themselves in the ashes of life or grief. As you read this book, my heart is for you to walk away with tools in your tool belt of life. This book is for those that have had any kind of loss in their life or have friends, coworkers, or family that have had losses. You'll learn what grief is, how it affects us, challenges of grief, benefits of grief, how to partner with the process, help those grieving, and secrets of building a new life. Hopefully, you will see the good in grief and reading this will unravel any lies you have believed about the process. My prayer is that another layer of healing and understanding will come to your heart, and you will learn how to Thrive in Seasons of Grief.

My Seasons of Grief Book Excerpt:

NEW THING I am a rarity in this modern world, in this ‘Quantum Age’, now, in the sea of life, we all have yachts with a spare engine and a jet ski. We like to keep moving, to duck and weave, to crawl if we can’t walk, or to run in every other instance, we move, our culture, society, economy, media, ecology, our whole way of life, here in the West at least, has been centered around the notion that we always ought to be moving, full of motion sickness, this feeling, the feeling of moving (simulated to perfection by our greatest creation; the automobile), this allows us to know that we are in fact alive, and not dead, but I believe there is a further ‘benefit’, that this constant motion allows for us to ignore another of the more serious, life defining questions, what are we rushing towards? Where does this treadmill ultimately lead? The answer is the same for all of us, sick, healthy, fat, bald, ugly, short, accomplished, home-wreckers, murderers, free men; ultimately we will all die. Kevin Ross McMahon 11/19/1984 – 6/29/2013 Encourage each other in my death with calls to go ‘farther up, and farther in’ in this life, so that you are prepared for the next as best you can. Alright, that’s hardly all I have, but still it must suffice I fear. Peace, joy and delightful things to you all. Love, always; Ross

Grieving Well Book Excerpt:

Death is a part of life. Even though it is a certainty, most of us are unequipped and ill-prepared for it. When we consider the timeline of life; it is clear that life unfolds in a series of seasons. Each of those seasons has a beginning, middle, and end. It’s easy to celebrate birth and the start of a new life because with birth comes so much optimism, hope and joy! The majority of life takes place in the seasons of growing up and becoming an adult, becoming a parent and perhaps a grandparent; this part of life is typically busy and filled with activities and lots of distractions. The most difficult part comes at the end of life’s journey. Whether the end comes suddenly or over a period of time, it comes with a sense of loss and emptinesss when we lose someone we love. According to the Faith Hospice website, a three-year study was conducted by Amerispeak and WebMD prior to COVID-19 in which they found that 57% of Americans are grieving in some way—the loss of a loved one, patients, human connection—at any given time. That means, if you’re walking down the street or shopping at the store, every other person you see is dealing with grief. In Grieving Well, storyteller Terri DeBoer has teamed up with Janet Jaymin. It is from Janet’s personal journey as a grief counselor helping thousands of individuals and families that allows her to validate that what was will never be the same. These thoughts and feelings can be a complete sense of doom and gloom for the individual but through Grieving Well, they can realize that while grief cannot be cured, peace can be found.

Winter of the Heart Book Excerpt:

We can't really prepare for grief. The only experts on grief are those who have survived it and then helped others do the same. Retreat leader, former psychotherapist, and bestselling author Paula D’Arcy is one of those experts. In Winter of the Heart, she shares her life’s work, accompanying you through seasons of grief and the emotions that come with the loss of a loved one or after other major changes in life. Winter of the Heart is a companion for anyone early in grieving process—for the person experiencing shock, emotional pain, an inability to move, guilt, intense anger, and a range of other emotions that might be new to you. D’Arcy lost her young husband and toddler in a violent car accident more than four decades ago. She understands your grief and can also help you look to what’s on the other side—hope, acceptance, recognition that what you are experiencing is both common and unique, and the essential counsel that you need not ever "get over it." Winter of the Heart is for those who mourn the death of a loved one, but it is also for counselors and pastoral ministers. You’ll find D'Arcy's words relevant for other occasions when mourning can be painful, including the end of a marriage, job loss, and other major life changes.

Your Church in Rhythm Book Excerpt:

A gentle new way for church leader’s to survive stress and burnout Bruce Miller debunks the idea of balance—basically trying to have it all, all the time. Most churches and their pastors try to do everything at once and feel guilty if any one aspect (worship, ministries, outreach, etc.) is neglected. He replaces the exhausting concept of balance with the idea of rhythm: churches, like people, need to give attention to different programs and ministries at different times, basically by attending to their seasons and cycles. Offers an innovative new model for church leaders Miller has been influential in the formation and promotion of “Church-Based Training” as in international movement Offers a proven method for avoiding burnout for church leaders and members by doing the right things at the right time The author offers much-need help to overwhelmed leaders and shows them how to apply Miller’s seasonal/cyclical approach to church life.

Grieving Biblically Book Excerpt:

There are many things in life that you can prepare for. Grieving is not one of those things. Even some losses can be mitigated to a point when they are known beforehand. Yet it is not until the reality of a loss settles in the mind and shatters your emotions that the full weight and power of grief can truly be known. There are many courses you must go through in the school of life, yet there is nothing harder nor anything you will be least prepared to go through than the grief produced by loss. Whether it is the loss of a spouse by death or divorce, the loss of a child, parent, sibling or beloved friend, loss of any kind will bring about varying depths of pain, sorrow, and grief. This book is for the grieving. A glimmering light of hope shining through the darkness of the storm, seeking to provide a safe course, steadying comfort, and solid commentary for the grieving soul. This hope can only be discovered by turning to the Bible, the Word of God to uncover not only how to get through grief God's way, but how God is able to turn the pain of your grief into His purpose for good. So grab your Bible, pen and paper as we seek God's answer to life's question of "How to grieve biblically?"

Soul of the Seasons Book Excerpt:

In a world filled with conflict, controversy, and confusion, Soul of the Seasons brings us a timely message based on an ancient medicine that is urgently needed in our modern, fast-paced lives. Through centuries of observation the sages of Five Element theory, a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine, taught that the outer landscape of the natural world reveals much about the nature of our inner landscapes. Encoded within the five seasons of Spring, Summer, Harvest, Fall and Winter, lies a wisdom designed to create and support balance and harmony. The five fundamental elements of Five Element theory resonate in our bodies as the core emotions of Anger, Joy, Sympathy, Grief, and Fear. Like the working components of a fine clock they comprise an elegant system of continuous movement, growth, and transformation. Weaving her deeply personal stories with Five Element wisdom, Melody A Scout teaches us that by developing intimate relationships with our core emotions—the unique vibrations that connect us to both our bodies and the Earth—we can effectively adapt and respond to life’s challenges. By developing a more intimate relationship with the seasons of life, we can learn to effectively: identify and correct our imbalances; develop greater compassion, integrity, and honesty; and to authentically and appropriately express our emotions in ways that support our highest good. Soul of the Seasons offers the wisdom of a traditional model of health and harmony made current through practical and easily accessible language, soul-stirring exercises, and thoughtful questions. Encoded within the seasons of the natural world is a wisdom that teaches that: • Spring is the time to remember our visions, to set healthy boundaries, and make quality decisions. • Summer brings us warmth and joy through community, communication, and connection. • Harvest provides a sweet satisfaction for an abundant life and the capacity to nurture and be nurtured. • Fall teaches us the importance of letting go and to value and respect what is most precious to us. • Winter reminds us that contemplation, reflection, and rest are essential in the germination of new visions.
