    We all will experience loss at some time in our life. And we all grieve differently. My most recent experience with loss and grief came when my childhood friend lost her partner of over 30 years to MS. For the last few years, she had become his sole caregiver. As I walked through her grief with her, I can admit that, at times, I struggled to find the right words; I never wanted to be contrite or overly optimistic. I tried to be a genuine friend, ensuring she knew I was always available. So, why d We all will experience loss at some time in our life. And we all grieve differently.

I wish I had this years ago, but I gleaned so much from it, and I highly recommend it to those in a season of sorrow in their lives.

    I think this is one of the few beneficial grief books out there. This is a different type of book- you can pick it up when you want, and however your feeling that day you can go to that section. This book does a great job at breaking grief down, and helping you to think about things, as well as express your grief and it's ok. This is not the usual grief book that gives you the text book lines everyone does - it's ok to feel that way, you just will learn to live with the grief, grief is something I think this is one of the few beneficial grief books out there.

This book helps you get through tough days, and to reflect while giving you a chance to write things down and use this a diary if you will. I also like that you can go back and reuse this book as many times as you want and I found that there were some sections that were useful just when having a stressful day or feeling a bit down. Thank you to Suzy Approved Book Tours for the invite an the author for the free book. This is one that will be left on the coffee table or within site and not left to get dusty on a shelf or buried in a box.

    I think this is a great guide for someone processing grief. I loved how it was set up in sections so that you could “skip” a section and go to the part is impacting you the most during the day. Some sections might not help everyone (since we all process differently), and the author acknowledged that, but the writing prompts help you process your thoughts and make you remember things about your person that you might not typically think about during grieving times.

While my people I’ve grieved for have been gone for some years this book helped bring them back closer to me. I liked how some sections can be used to help in other aspects of your life not just in grief. There are great tools to help destress among other things. Not only does it help process your own grief, but it has do’s and don’t about helping others in their time. This is a book you can refer back to as many times as you need.

    The Modern Loss Handbook is an Interactive Guide to Moving Through Grief and Building Your Resilence. Personally, having experienced so much loss in my life, I was a bit skeptical but open minded when I opened this book . The book is full of advice for how to deal with your loss and seeing what your future self looks like without that person. I think her advice about trigger days is very good. Mother's Day is a huge trigger day for me so I found some great resources in that part of the handbook.

Mother's Day is a huge trigger day for me so I found some great resources in that part of the handbook. And that is what this really is , a handbook with exercises to complete and a place to write your thoughts. I found this helpful as my mom's birthday was recently and I miss her every single day. This is a book I will go back to again and again , as grief hits me every day and finding a way to move on from it would be wonderful and I think this is the book that can help with that.

    This handbook is for anyone who has lost someone. This encourages you find meaning and move forward. I became a widow suddenly and it totally blew me away. I wish I had this book right after my husband passed. I like how each chapter relates to different things in your life such as, memories, triggers, and dealing with family and friends as well as the stigmas placed on grief and loss in society.

    Part of life is death and we will at some time in our lives loose those people we hold dear. This book is a rich combination of workbook, personal insights, and ideas to help navigate the grief.

The book has highlighted in blue important points Rebecca wants all to remember on our grief journey.

She states to use this book in whatever manner that suits you and come and go in this book as needed. The book has highlighted in blue important points Rebecca wants all to remember on our grief journey. One highlighted portion that has really stayed with me is that even though your person has died, you continue to be in a relationship with them and through loss the relationship changes but is never taken away. I found the section on trigger days to be helpful especially the ideas to acknowledge the day. Another section I felt important to me was working through to see if seeking a professional to help deal with grief would be a good fit. Favorite thing in this book..the grief stickers. There are so many useful tools in this book that really will help everyone stay connected to your person while acknowledging the current state of you and the world around you.

    This is honestly the  first book related to loss/grief that I’ve ever found helpful. Rebecca Soffer’s approach is relatable. It’s gracious and sometimes it’s even entertaining. It’s very obvious from the beginning and throughout the book that this was developed by someone who has dealt with loss. There is a lot that I appreciate about this book and some highlights include: - It’s a workbook/handbook with prompts and exercises to help us work through our feelings. - “Think like a crab.

There is a lot that I appreciate about this book and some highlights include: - It’s a workbook/handbook with prompts and exercises to help us work through our feelings. - “Think like a crab. Remember that if something isn’t resonating with you, you can always pivot and see what works better.” - “Don’t think of grief as a wall to scale but rather as a wall to walk alongside - one you can decorate, too.” - A permission slip to pass on “celebrations” this time around. I could list so many more examples but ultimately I hope you will consider this book for yourself and as a gift for others.  Unfortunately we have all experienced loss and will experience more in the future.  I find it comforting to know that I’ll have this book to help me moving forward.

    This is a helpful guide for someone after they have lost a person in their life. I really like that there are a wide variety of tools throughout the book to assist someone. There's the advice you would expect to find, but there's so much more. There are project ideas, help on managing work-life, exercises, and so much more. I think this could be a really helpful tool as someone lives with the loss of another. I was provided a gifted copy of this book for free. I am leaving my review voluntarily.

    This book is THE book that I needed to make sense of my own grief. I love that it encourages you to feel all the feelings and that they're all OK. The suggestions and journaling exercises are thought provoking and cathartic. I cried, I laughed, I wished I didn't need this book, and then I realized that I felt a little better. This is a gift that will keep on giving and necessary for anyone coping with a loss. I received a gifted copy in exchange for an honest review.

    This is such a wonderful book! It's not a book you just sit down and read cover to cover- At least not for me. It's more a book that you want to keep handy for those moments that hit you out of nowhere. It's full of tips and reminders to give yourself grace. There's no "one size fits all" when it comes to grief and there's a little bit of everything in this book. Places to write your thoughts and feelings, reflect on what you just read. All in all, this is an amazing read! This is such a wonderful book! It's not a book you just sit down and read cover to cover- At least not for me.

    For anyone grieving a loved one, this book is invaluable. The author uses research, mental health professionals , humor, profanity, and advice from people who are grieving (the real experts) to guide you through your own personal grief journey.
