Grief Day by Day: Simple Practices and Daily Guidance for Living with Loss

By Lisa Florjancic, MA, LSW

41UZsZu2kPL-_SX331_BO1,204,203,200_-(1).jpgJan Warner wrote Grief Day by Day to help others when they are grieving a loved one’s death. After her husband died, Warner created a blog, a community on Facebook and now this book. She feels that honoring grief is honoring love. She reminds us that “grief is our common language” and that it is “messy,” but there is hope.   

Grief Day by Day includes: 
  • 365 daily reflections
  • Weekly themes that capture common feelings and experiences while grieving
  • 52 healing exercises to help process your feelings at the end of each week
Warner understands that grief is complex, and that it can and does change from day to day. She recognizes that everyone grieves differently and encourages the reader to use this resource in whatever way they find most helpful. Warner feels that if something is useful, you should continue using it. If something doesn’t connect with you, move on to the next section. Warner also shares her own grief journey throughout the book, including how the reflections have helped her. She states in the introduction, “Let us find a way to celebrate through our own actions the lives of our loved one, to make their lives matter more to us then their deaths.”
