“After my wife died, people meant well; that didn’t make them helpful. I wish I’d had this book to pass on to them.”

– Cec Murphey, New York Times bestselling author of more than 130 books

People are hurting. Someone you know is grieving. Maybe that someone is you.

You wonder what to say, what to do. You want to help, but how?

If you're grieving, you wonder what's happening. How do you do this? Is what you're feeling and thinking normal? How long is this going to take? What's next? Perhaps you're even wondering who you are now.

People often feel misunderstood, judged, and even rejected during a time of loss. This makes matters more difficult for an already broken heart.

It doesn't have to be this way. It’s time we took the grieving heart seriously.

Multi-award-winning author, speaker, and grief specialist Gary Roe is a trusted and compassionate voice in grief recovery who has been helping hurting people heal and grow for over three decades. He has walked with thousands of grieving hearts through the valley of loss. He has seen their pain and felt their anguish. He can help you better understand the grieving heart and what you can do to care for and support those who are hurting. 


Hurting people need you. This book is their story, their plea for understanding and help.

Open your heart and listen. You'll be glad you did.
