Griefabet lends thoughtful coping strategies for dealing with grief both during the holidays and throughout the year.
Salt Lake City, Utah (Vocus/PRWEB) December 07, 2010
Karen O. Johnson, MEd, grief counselor and author from Riverton, Utah is offering much needed encouragement to those living with loss this holiday season with the release of her book, Griefabet: Everyday Letters to Wrap Around Your Heart (Griefabet). Written with the individual griever in mind, Griefabet is a perfect condolence gift, offering comfort on every page, in any order, on any day.
“Living with loss can become even more difficult and lonesome during the holidays. Festive music and twinkling lights lose their luster; instead, they conjure up the dread of the upcoming season,” commented Johnson. “If you are living with loss, life is different now, and the holidays are no exception. Griefabet lends thoughtful coping strategies for dealing with grief both during the holidays and throughout the year.”
The Griefabet website, http://www.Griefabet.com, offers increased healing and support through an online forum where visitors can share their grief story, either anonymously or by name.
“May this book encourage your sadness, your missing, your remembering, and your awakening of a newfound hope,” says Johnson. “Now is the time to embrace the past, live for today, and discover a different voice of gladness for the future.”
Griefabet can be purchased online through the Griefabet website, http://www.Griefabet.com for a special holiday discounted price of $14.00 (free shipping) or through Amazon.com for $19.95. For more information on Griefabet, and to share your grief story, visit http://www.Griefabet.com/intro.
