5.0 out of 5 stars Grief - A Crisis of the Heart July 22 2010
By Richard R. Blake - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback
"Inside the Broken Heart" is a unique combination of spirituality and psychology. Julie Yarbrough brings hope and comfort to anyone experiencing the realities of the grief journey. The book is especially written for those who are grieving the loss of a mate.

Yarbrough understands grief experientially. At the age of 55 she became a widow, when pancreatic cancer claimed the life of her husband. She knows first hand the loneliness and the pain of those early dark hours of uncertainty, fear, anger, sadness, and loneliness.

In a sensitive and understanding way Yarbrough reminds the reader that, although each individual experiences their own personal grief in different ways, there are similarities that may be experienced in each stage of the journey of grief. Her concerned, caring counsel helps the reader identify their own person progress on each step of this emotional journey. She goes on to help those grieving to recognize and draw on the resources available to them, such as: rest, courage, and attitude. She addresses survival strategies, fitting in, and encourages the reader to move on to live a new life that honors the life of their loved one.

In Part two covers topics of: faith, prayer, adjustment, acceptance, hope, and healing. These chapters also provide some excellent materials and action plans for financial management and preparing a legacy for your heirs.

Julie Yarbrough's writing resonates with heartfelt empathy, is well organized, and sensitive. "Inside the Broken Heart" is essential reading for surviving spouses, grief counselors, pastors, and hospice caregiver.

5.0 out of 5 stars Healing for the Broken Heart June 25 2010
By Angel Muly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
When I was asked to review this book, I agreed with hesitation because I haven't (thank the Lord) lost my spouse. I have however, recently lost my mom, so I agreed to read it thinking it could even help me in that process. There are parts that deal with grief of any kind, but it is definitely written with the loss of a spouse at the forefront. I think this book is a wonderful resource to anyone who has lost a spouse. It is so full of God's Word and insights as to how to begin, walk through, and live out the healing process. It covers just about everything you need including a financial section to help remind you of the things easily forgotten when you are dealing with such grief. I would definitely recommend this book to those it was intended for, a grieving spouse.

Thank you Julie for blessing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

I bought this book on saturday and finished reading it on Sunday. I have bought and read about 7 books since my husband died 5 months ago. This was beautifully and poignantly written. It helped me so much; gave me so much comfort. I love the short chapters and how there are scriptures for each chapter. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with grief through the loss of a spouse.

5.0 out of 5 stars comforting and practical read for grieving widows/widowers Aug. 27 2012
By kathi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback|Verified Purchase
someone recommended this book to me after my husband died (at age 56.) it has short chapters, (which is about all one can handle when grieving) filled w/scripture that is both comforting and meaningful. it is not "over the top" religious. the author, herself a widow, manages to take the reader on a logical and chronological path (with regard to the grief process.) also of note, at the end of the book, there's a financial guideline, with space to make "fill in the blank" entries, to help keep track of assets/liabilities and general household information....so this book is not only a comfort to read but also a practical guide.
