I had seen mixed reviews about this book, but mostly positive so I thought I would give it a try since at times I have felt stuck in my own grieving process! I was not drawn to the cover online, but in person the book actually looks really great and is a nice hardcover. The idea of having space to journal is awesome, but I did not connect with many of the questions that went along with each devotion. I did enjoy reading some of the personal stories that were included in the devotional. The personal stories covered a variety of different scenarios too, which helped broaden the audience of the book. The book really is intended to speak to a broad range of women. Men may connect with parts of the book, but the book is geared toward women in my opinion.
Also, I liked the idea of having a table of contents to be able to pick certain sections for specific seasons. The author did a great job at allowing the reader permission to use the book in whatever way was helpful. I skipped around a bit trying to find chapters or journal exercises that I wanted to read or do. Overall, I am glad I read the book even if I did not find it all that helpful nor did it resonate with me in this season. Perhaps, I will find it helpful later. I am thankful that the author is tackling this subject and desiring to help women going through the grieving process!
