To live is to experience change and loss. No matter the magnitude of the loss - some losses are more devastating than others - the dynamics of change and loss remain the same.

In Blessing Life's Losses, Joan Guntzelman presents ways of looking at loss - whether of a job, relationship, pet, status, dreams, health, home - and suggests ways to acknowledge and work through that loss. Underlying each chapter, which deals with a specific kind of loss, is the theme that loss and growth are interwoven and part of life. How a person deals with loss determines to what degree that person will grow.

Through stories - usually taken from the author's or her clients' life experiences -prayer, commentary reflecting the author's professional expertise and Christian spirituality, and suggestions for action, the reader gains insight and help in dealing with a specific type of loss in a way that leads to personal growth.

Originally published by St. Mary's Press and now retitled, Blessing Life's Losses is a timely and timeless resource for all adults.
