Helpful Resources

At Love Not Lost, we want to share a variety of resources to help you through life and grief.

These resources are not boxes you need to check off in the grieving process or requirements to heal. It will be up to you to decide which resources will be most helpful to you at this point in your journey, but this is a good place to start.

Every person has a unique journey through life. Every person has a unique journey through grief.


Books On Our List:

At least one person from our team reads each book before we add it to our list. We want to find books that can help you love yourself or love other people better through life and grief. There are some books that are religious, some that are more practical, and some that are first-hand accounts of someone's personal journey through grief. Please read the summaries below and the Amazon ratings and reviews to determine what would be best for you at this time.

Braving the Wilderness

Brene Brown shares in her newest book, "The wilderness is an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching. It is a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking, a place as sought after as it is feared. But it turns out to be the place of true belonging, and it's the bravest and most sacred place you will ever stand." 

Option B

After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. Her friend Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. They share this and more with you in Option B. 

A Grief Observed

You may know C.S. Lewis as the author of Chronicles of Narnia. But what you may not know is that he wrote this book after his wife's tragic death as a way of surviving the "mad midnight moment." A Grief Observed is C.S. Lewis's honest reflection on the fundamental issues of life, death, and faith in the midst of loss.

In My Own Skin

Kirsten Schowalter's memoir is an incredible invitation to join her on her journey through grief after losing her dad to a tragic car accident. Navigating through grief with her mother and younger sisters proves to be challenging, but Kirsten brings such honesty and vulnerability as she shared their story in finding life again.
