“Aftermath” by Margaret Sweeney (A Litfuse Blog Tour)

Aftermath: Growing in Grace Through Grief

Loss is a four-letter word that grips our hearts and gridlocks our lives. Grief can hold us captive until we surrender it to God.

How do we find the necessary grace to journey through the mourning process? Juxtaposed to the outpouring of her mother’s words about grief, the author shares her parallel journey from the emotional abyss of grief after becoming an adult orphan. With candor, the author shares her own emotions experienced along the spectrum of loss after her parents’ deaths: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance—adding interactive options for readers.

Five sections cover these common emotions and provide: • comfort Scripture lists • counsel sections from grief experts • chronicling sections with detailed helps • tangible handles on dealing with grief during holidays, capturing loved ones’ legacy, and more.
