Each thoughtful devotional begins with a scripture and ends with a haiku, written to affirm the positive theme of the text. Divided into four categories-body, soul, heart, and spirit-each day's entry offers insight into the grieving process that increases understanding of God's purposeful plan for healing the heart and soul.

When mourning, it is often difficult to talk about how you feel, even with your close friends or family members. There is no immediate or magical cure for your loss, but writing in a grief journal is a form of catharsis. Many studies have demonstrated that when participants write about traumatic events, they show improvements in their mental and physical health. Journaling helps you process your feelings and express yourself in a safe, nonjudgmental place. This workbook is designed to guide you through a series of grief journaling exercises over the course of a week. Each chapter will focus on a different aspect of grieving and healing and will allow you to customize your journaling for your individual needs. It will likely have emotional or challenging moments, but stick with it. What you put into it is what you will get out of it.
