At Love Not Lost, we want to share a variety of resources that might help you get the most out of life and support you in grief.
Every person has a unique journey through life and therefore a unique journey through grief as well.
Every resource is not going to be right for you, but we hope this gives you a great place to start in your search. These resources are not requirements to heal or boxes you need to check off in the grieving process. It will be up to you to decide which resources will be most helpful to you at this time.
We're continually learning about new books, blogs, podcasts, conferences, organizations, and other resources. These are just a few suggestions based on what we have reviewed and feedback we've gotten from trusted people in our community. This page will be continually evolving as new resources are discovered and added so please check back often or share with people who might find this useful.
Thank you for visiting this page. We hope these resources are helpful for you!

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."
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.
