On Grief and Grieving: Finding the Meaning of Grief Through the Five Stages of Loss
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross' On Death and Dying changed the way we talk about the end of life. Before her own death in 2004, she and David Kessler completed On Grief and Grieving, which looks at the way we experience the process of grief. Just as On Death and Dying taught us the five stages of death -- denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance -- On Grief and Grieving applies these stages to the grieving process and weaves together theory, inspiration, and practical advice, including sections on sadness, hauntings, dreams, isolation, and healing.

Dying to Know: A Guide to Death for Everyone Alive
Pilotlight Australia and Hardie Grant Books are pleased to announce the launch of Dying to Know - bringing death to life in the United Kingdom on the 15th March 2010, in association with Dying Matters Week. The book was spear-headed by Jane Tewson whose 30 years in the charitable sector have been driven by a passion to create positive social change. Greater connection between people and for people when they need it most is behind all her initiatives, like Comic Relief which she co-founded in the 1980s. This time, with her team at Pilotlight Australia, Jane is using a graphic, provocative book, rather than a red nose, to start a conversation! Like so many others, the team at Pilotlight Australia has been challenged by death and what lies beyond it - they believe that renewing a conversation about dying can help build supportive communities and inspire change for the living. Traditionally people have always lived with death - an inseparable part of their lives. But for many people today, death has become a modern taboo. This little book seeks to break the silence around death and dying and stimulate a discussion that genuinely connects people on the most profound level, not as experts, but as people with the same dreams, hopes, fears and concerns. Dying to Know offers a series of thought buds that reflect on bringing death to life - practical information, quirky facts and humble suggestions that lift the lid on death - planning a personalised funeral; telling people you love them while they are alive rather than waiting to write a memorial notice; taking round a meal for a family overcome with loss; donating organs; creating online memorials; writing an emotional will in which you leave things of the heart rather than your material property; things to do before you die and a host of other topics. Each is presented in a double-page spread and each succeeds in empowering, inspiring and, at times, amusing the reader. The book is also designed as a resource that links the reader to a vast range of services and organisations - from support for people with cancer to statutory information about Wills. But Dying to Know is not a book with all the answers. Just ideas, insights, reflections and inspiring illustrations about a subject none of us can escape. Read it and then rush into the daylight to get on with the more challenging matter of living.

Five Weeks: A Lifetime: The True Journey of Clinton Jacob
Suppose you have a teacher who knows the secret of life. A teacher who can show you what it takes to live to the fullest, to love until your heart bleeds out--to have it all, and then to let it all go. Now, suppose your teacher is only five weeks old.When the Sullivans are told their unborn child has a congenital heart defect, they have no idea where the news will lead them. Their dreams of bedtime cuddles and soft baby coos give way to the incessant beeping of hospital machinery and the sharp smell of antiseptic. With two young children in tow, the uprooted family takes an unexpected journey discovering the truth of love, sorrow, and ultimately, the gift of life.This true story--comprised of journal entries, letters, and emails--is the legacy of one small boy's lifetime.

Waterbugs and Dragonflies: Explaining Death to Young Children
How can we answer the many questions young children have about death?Doris Stickney and her minister husband were looking for a meaningful way to explain to neighborhood children the death of a five-year-old friend -- an explanation that would satisfy not only the children but adult minds as well. While they were preparing for the child's memorial service, the fable of the water bug that changed into a dragonfly came to mind."Water Bugs and Dragonflies" tells the story of a small colony of water bugs living happily below the surface of a quiet pond. Every so often one of them climbs up a lily stalk and disappears from sight, never to return. Those left behind are faced with the mystery of figuring out what has become of them.Revealing the "miracle that makes shiny dragonflies out of ugly bugs", this graceful story reminds us that God has given us the means of transforming our metaphorical selves into dragonflies capable of winging off contentedly into a new world. Recognizing that "the old answers will not satisfy today's children", Stickney presents instead a simple, wise tale that illuminates a difficult reality without pretending to contain all the answers.This bona fide bestseller -- more than 150,000 copies have been printed -- is presented here in a deluxe gift edition, including newly rendered full-color illustrations. Set in large type so that young readers can enjoy it themselves, Water Bugs also includes accompanying information that offers the author's own insights for explaining how adults can effectively assist children in coping with death.

When Grief Breaks Your Heart
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. Check out books on the subject of grief and appropriate Bulletins. See some examples in the Related Products Section below. Did you know. . . 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...

The Empty Chair: Handling Grief on Holidays and Special Occasions
Losing a loved one--whether a spouse, parent, child, sibling, or friend--leaves people feeling overwhelmed and hopeless. Holidays and other special occasions seem to intensify the pain. Whether the occasion is Christmas or Easter, a birthday or anniversary, these celebrations force the bereaved to again face the reality of a loved one's absence. Susan Zonnebelt-Smeenge and Robert C. De Vries know firsthand the sorrow of bereavement: Both lost a spouse. Yet as they faced their pain and gleaned insights from their professions--Susan is a psychologist, Robert, a minister--they found renewed richness on special days that once brought heartache. In The Empty Chair, the authors share a comforting blend of emotional support, spiritual guidance, and personal experience to help readers honor their loved one on important days. Those who support the bereaved--mental-health professionals, pastors, funeral home staff, and others--will also appreciate this book for its reflective yet practical approach.

Death
Ours is a death-denying society. But death is inevitable, and we must face the question of how to deal with it. Coming to terms with our own finiteness helps us discover life's true meaning. Why do we treat death as a taboo? What are the sources of our fears? How do we express our grief, and how do we accept the death of a person close to us? How can we prepare for our own death? Drawing on our own and other cultures' views of death and dying, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross provides some illuminating answers to these and other questions. She offers a spectrum of viewpoints, including those of ministers, rabbis, doctors, nurses, and sociologists, and the personal accounts of those near death and of their survivors. Once we come to terms with death as a part of human development, the author shows, death can provide us with a key to the meaning of human existence.
