The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss: Russell Friedman

Your relationship with your pet is special--it's a bond that is very different than those that human beings share with each other. When a beloved pet passes away, people often resort to incorrect mechanisms to deal with the grief, such as trying to move too quickly past the  loss dismissing the real impact), or even attempting to replace the pet immediately. However, these are merely two myths out of six that the authors discuss and dismantle in The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss. Based on the authors' Grief Recovery Method®, this book  addresses how losing a pet is different from losing a human loved one, and ultimately, how to move on with life.

Tuesday, September 1, 2015
Jeff Jay's life was full of tragedy: his Marriage had ended, his father had passed away, his brother had committed suicide, and Jeff's own alcoholism had taken him to the edge of death.  In his desire for a fresh start, Jeff set out on a solo adventure by sea on an old sloop named Lifeboat. It ultimately became a journey of personal transformation. He cast off in Annapolis, Maryland with an eye toward the Caribbean. Finally able to breathe, Jeff relaxed into his first day sailing the Atlantic when a dark winter storm descended, tossing him into a week-long fight for survival on the open sea. As he faced the realization that only divine intervention could deliver him from certain death, Jeff desperately called on the deity that had intervened in the darkest hours of his addiction years earlier.

An intensely personal testimony to calling on the power of grace in our darkest hours, Jeff's tells a powerful story of far-fetched dreams, desperate prayers, and those miraculous moments that change our lives forever.
