Sharing the Practice "A beautiful book of meditations." Christian Century "McEntyre's language is reflective and sensitive but not sentimental. . . . A thoughtful and realistic window into the often hidden, though well-traveled, end-of-life journey." Michael Card — musician and writer "Marilyn McEntyre embodies simple, patient kindness in the pages of this book." Samuel Wells — vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London "When we face our own death, or the death of someone dearer to us than life itself, we perceive as-yet formless truths and strive to articulate the fearful truths we apprehend. What we need is a companion who can abide amid our chaos, a sage who can choose the right moment to share a word, and a prophet who can say the thing we shrink from, yet need to hear. Marilyn Chandler McEntyre is all of these things. Going gently with her into the prison of death will set you free." Topeka Capital-Journal "Letting go of a loved one who is nearing the end of life is a difficult proposition, no matter how you slice it. Drawing from her years as a hospice volunteer, as well as from her experience of caring for her own family members, Marilyn Chandler McEntyre delves into this delicate subject with grace and compassion in her new book."

There is nothing more painful than losing someone you dearly love. Loss is a fact of life and no one can ever take control of this, but no one can also deny that it makes the lives of people left behind sad and miserable.

Knowing that your loved one already left you behind can be unbearable, but you have to remember that though his or her life ended, your life needs to continue. The negative emotions are given after someone's demise but it is not right to embrace sadness for the rest of your life. Healing after a loss is highly possible. It just takes positive attitude and determination to overcome the pain and grief so that everyone will continue to live and be happy. If you do not know when and where to start healing your heart and its wounds, read on as this book was written to guide you as you walk through and finally overcome the dark phase of your life. Here, you will discover ways on how to overcome your grief through daily meditations and many other helpful ways.
