First Reads Win!!! Still in process of reading, but this book is outstanding! Highly recommend to any griever and even told my therapist about it.

I highly recommend Stunned by Grief. I have read several similar books and I can say that this one is one of the best. Judy expertly weaves her own personal experience of grief, thorough research, sound biblical truths and the experiences from many others throughout this entire book. Judy gives you an honest and at times raw look at the reality of grief and carefully walks the reader through the process. You will realize that you are not alone in your grief and that what you are experiencing is ...more

Very little available in the self-help niche of grief. From the beggars-can't-be-choosers perspective I will admit that while I did gain the kick in the pants I need to get myself to a support group and become more focused with my journaling (two of the must-do things recommended for remapping ones life) the over-arching focus of the book is to tell you to pray, pray often, and to give the control of your life over to God. Considering that the books covers, both front and back, don't mention the ...more

I have to admit that I only read the first 3/4 of this book. I ended up taking it back to the library. I didn't finish the book because I found it so poorly organized both in thought and type. It may cover the surface of grieving but it doesn't appear to make any effort to get to the root of deep grief & how each individual can take steps to grow with it, using grief to propel themselves onward in life. Growing in/with our grief in no way requires a certain religion, which is a point I think ...more

This book is a very practical resource, although it is somewhat general and platitudinous. I found her counsel on re-mapping one's life very helpful. I also liked her Christian emphasis. Keeping God in the picture makes for a more complete healing, in my opinion.

Judy Brizendine—author, blogger, and speaker—is a woman with a passionate mission that developed as a result of a tragic loss. The statement, “Out of your deepest pain comes your greatest gift,” describes her experience.

In 1998, Judy’s husband of twenty-nine years died suddenly on a mountain bike ride, and her grief journey changed her life, perspective, and career.

Because she was painfully unprep
