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.
