BOOKS

Lament for a Son by Nicholas Wolterstorff - this short diary from a father who suddenly lost his son reminds you that "someone else gets it".

After the Death of a Child: Living with Loss through the Years by Ann K. Finkbeiner - this book gave me the peace of mind to know that there is no real timetable for adjusting after the loss of a child. Hear stories from parents who lost children of all ages and how the loss radically affected their lives.

Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor A. Frankl - when you're past the shock and numb phase of your grieving and ready to start asking "What does it all mean?" this is a challenging book about Frankl's experience in a Nazi death camp where he recognizes that the meaning you attach to an event is just as impactful as the event itself.

Through Painted Deserts: Light, God, and Beauty on the Open Road by Donald Miller - a book about a road trip and questioning the "how and why" of God & life. This book is not about grieving, but the idea of being on a journey and questioning all you've held as true strikes a chord.
