What Our Clients Say

4/5
I am thankful to have found Grief - IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE OK! I found it helped me support my sister after the loss of her husband. Great list of resources.
Janet Sinclair
5/5
I have served my country and I am no stanger to loss, but I found this book valuable. Both in my own grieving journey and in supporting others. I like the no BS style of cutting through the myths about grief and not a bunch of platitudes.
Kirk McManus
4.3/5
I lost my dad to COVID. I was angry and did not understand why. My sister gave me this book and all I could think is the last thing I want is a homework assignment. I am glad she did. As a young adult I had no gauge, experience or understanding of what I was going through.
Marcus Huffman
4.7/5
I recently lost my Grandfather. He was an incredible man and larger than life. I was not ready for the flood of emotions and Yes, to be honest, I did wonder if I was grieve correctly. Thank you for the answers I needed.
