Book Review - Grief Unveiled: A Widow’s Guide to Navigating Your Journey in Life After Loss by Sarah Nannen

Author Sarah Nannen describes herself as a life and grief coach. Her recently published book, Grief Unveiled: A Widow’s Guide to Navigating Your Journey in Life after Loss, explores one approach to a positive outcome coming from a journey of profound sadness. This short, beautifully written book shares the author’s own journey following the death of her husband in addition to the losses experienced by her clients. It offers support to anyone who has lost a loved one and encourages each of us to face our grief and become comfortable in finding our own individual journey. Grief, she states, “leaves you forever changed but does not have to mean forever suffering […] its purpose is to facilitate healing, so we may process, evolve and step into life again.”

Why It's OK To Say, "I'm Still Grieving"

​There is a list of myths about how grief and loss impact children long-term. When asked in a classroom, “Are children permanently scarred by death?” most students provide a resounding “no” in response. This is often presented in a question about what some big differences might be if an adult’s mom or dad died, or if a child’s mom or dad died. They are often quick with answers about how their parent would miss proms, graduations, senior nights, weddings and births of their own children. They are able to paint a picture of how a loss impacts us differently as our lives go on and learn early that this does not mean that they have not dealt with the loss in a healthy way.
