It would be easy to crawl into bed, pull a cover over my head, and hibernate for the rest of my life.

We have all lost loved ones or friends to death. Grief Recovery can be a hard path. Being sad or distressed over the death is completely different than experiencing grief. Grief encompasses our whole being and at times is difficult to recover from.
A new book by Sandra Brown Neahusan describes the path of grief and recovery she has walked since her husband passed away in June 2010. It chronicles how her faith and trust in God were the guiding forces of her recovery.
In her book, Sandra discusses the many emotions such as sadness, overwhelming grief, and desertion that a person experiences after the loss of a loved one. Sandra felt extreme hopelessness when all she was able to do was cry some days. She also felt hopefulness as she trusted in God’s compassion as she sought His plan for her life and discovered the many ways He was guiding her.
Sandra has a burden for others who have lost loved ones through death, especially spouses. She desires to be an encouragement in a time when grief is new and emotions are raw. People sometimes have difficulty expressing the feelings of hopelessness, aloneness and despair that occur after the loss of someone special. Sandra courageously approaches these with honesty, compassion and humor.
