Feeling Your Way Through Grief

A Companion for Life after Loss  
Missy Buchanan

You are not alone in your grief. When author Missy Buchanan lost her beloved husband of 43 years, she was devastated. As she looked for meaningful resources to help her cope with her grief, Missy found most books too long or heady. So, she decided to process her grief in her own way … by writing personal notes to her husband, unfiltered and straight from her heart. In this poignant collection of reflections from that first year, Missy models how to “feel all your feelings” as she navigates the challenges and unexpected hurdles she experienced from day to day. Feeling Your Way Through Grief is an invitation to embrace the complexities of loss, find solace in genuine emotions, and embark on a faithful journey toward healing. Reflection questions at the end of each chapter invite you to explore your own emotions more deeply, gently guiding you along your own unwanted journey of grief.
