Books in Common welcomes writer and "student-of-grief" Shelby Forsythia to share her new book YOUR GRIEF YOUR WAY
Books in Common NW takes a breath with grief guide Shelby Forsythia and her new book Your Grief Your Way which offers comforting words and practical ideas for living with loss.
Everyone experiences grief differently after the loss of a loved one. Some people find solace in comforting quotes and warm words, while others feel a need to take action–to do something to memorialize their loss. And some benefit from both approaches. Here’s a path forward for you, no matter how you process your grief.
Your Grief, Your Way features:
• Multiple ways to process grief: Find relief through short meditations, mindful reframings, journaling prompts, concrete actions, and more.
• A year of daily messages of comfort: Each page includes a quote and a short paragraph about grief along with a practical tip–something you can do to tend to your grief.
• Comfort and practicality in short spurts: Discover strength and support in these bite-size nuggets, since grief reduces the ability to focus.
• Quotes from a wide range of grievers: Tend to your grief with thoughtful words of people who have been in your shoes.
Whether you’re looking for inspiration, a practical way to honor your loved one, or both, Your Grief, Your Way helps you navigate life after loss.
"You can read this book day by day, or several pages at a time. It's perfect for anyone who's struggling to regain their footing and needs to proceed gently and with care."
