Letting go is not a process that comes naturally to us. In a world that teaches us to cling to what we love at all costs, there is an undeniable art to moving on – and it’s one that we are constantly relearning. In this series of honest and poignant essays, Heidi Priebe explores the harsh reality of what it means to let go of the people and situations we love most - often before we are ready to – and how to embrace what comes next.

<DIV><B>Challenging conventional wisdom on grief, a pioneering therapist offers a new resource for those experiencing loss</B><BR />  <BR /> When a painful loss or life-shattering event upends your world, here is the first thing to know: <I>there is nothing wrong with grief.</I> “Grief is simply love in its most wild and painful form,” says Megan Devine. “It is a natural and sane response to loss.”<BR />  <BR /> So, why does our culture treat grief like a disease to be cured as quickly as possible?<BR />  <BR /> In <I>It’s OK That You’re Not OK, </I>Megan Devine offers a profound new approach to both the experience of grief and the way we try to help others who have endured tragedy. Having experienced grief from both sides—as both a therapist and as a woman who witnessed the accidental drowning of her beloved partner—Megan writes with deep insight about the unspoken truths of loss, love, and healing. She debunks the culturally prescribed goal of returning to a normal, “happy” life, replacing it with a far healthier middle path, one that invites us to build a life alongside grief rather than seeking to overcome it. In this compelling and heartful book, you’ll learn:<BR />  <BR /> • Why well-meaning advice, therapy, and spiritual wisdom so often end up making it harder for people in grief<BR /> • How challenging the myths of grief—doing away with stages, timetables, and unrealistic ideals about how grief should unfold—allows us to accept grief as a mystery to be honored instead of a problem to solve<BR /> • Practical guidance for managing stress, improving sleep, and decreasing anxiety without trying to “fix” your pain<BR /> • How to help the people you love—with essays to teach us the best skills, checklists, and suggestions for supporting and comforting others through the grieving process<BR />  <BR /> Many people who have suffered a loss feel judged, dismissed, and misunderstood by a culture that wants to “solve” grief. Megan writes, “Grief no more needs a solution than love needs a solution.” Through stories, research, life tips, and creative and mindfulness-based practices, she offers a unique guide through an experience we all must face—in our personal lives, in the lives of those we love, and in the wider world.<BR />  <BR /><I>It’s OK That You’re Not OK</I> is a book for grieving people, those who love them, and all those seeking to love themselves—and each other—better.</DIV>

<p><strong>A Jewish Book Award Finalist</strong></p><p>In the tradition of <em>Tuesdays with Morrie</em> and <em>The Last Lecture</em>, <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author Sara Davidson met every Friday with 89-year-old Rabbi Zalman Shachter-Shalomi, the iconic founder of the Jewish Renewal movment, to discuss what he calls <em>The December Project</em>. "When you can feel in your cells that you're coming to the end of your tour of duty," he said, "what is the spiritual work of this time, and how do we prepare for the mystery?"</p><p>Davidson, who has a seeker's heart and a skeptic's mind, jumped at the chance to spend time with him. She'd long feared that death would be a complete annihilation, while Reb Zalman felt certain that "something continues." He said he didn't want to convince her of anything. "What I want is to loosen your mind." Through their talks, he wanted to help people "not freak out about dying," and enable them to have a more heightened and grateful life.</p><p>For two years, they met every week, and this is Davidson's memoir of what they learned and how they changed. Interspersed with their talks are sketches from Reb Zalman's extraordinary life. He barely escaped the Nazis, became an Orthodox rabbi in the US, was married four times and had eleven children, one from a sperm donation to a lesbian rabbi, and formed friendships with leaders of other faiths, such as Thomas Merton and the Dalai Lama. Breaking with the Orthodox, he founded the Jewish Renewal Movement to encourage people to have a direct experience of God.</p><p>During their time together, Davidson was nearly killed by a suicide bomb, and Reb Zalman struggled with a steep decline in health. Together they created strategies to deal with pain and memory loss, and found tools to cultivate simplicity, fearlessness, and joy—at any age. Davidson includes twelve exercises so that readers may experience what she did—a sea change in facing what we all must face: mortality.</p>

<p><strong>IS IT POSSIBLE THAT GOOD THINGS CAN COME OUT OF OUR BROKEN DREAMS?</strong></p><p>Worship leader and recording artist Laura Story’s life took an unexpected turn when her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Their lives would never be the same. Yes, with God all things are possible. But the devastating news was that no cure existed to restore Martin’s short-term memory, eyesight, and other complications. The fairy-tale life Laura had dreamed of was no longer possible. And yet in struggling with God about how to live with broken dreams, Laura has found joy and a deeper intimacy with Jesus.</p><p>Laura helps us understand we aren’t the only ones whose lives have taken unexpected turns. She examines the brokenness of some of the heroes of our faith, and shows how despite their flaws and flawed stories, God was able to use them in extraordinary ways. And it was not because of their faith, but because of the faithfulness of their God. God may not fix everything. In fact, although your situation might not ever change or get better, with Jesus <em>you</em> can.</p><p>“Our family has been ministered to by her vulnerability and willingness to walk in the valley and still say ‘God, I Trust You.’”</p><p>— STEVEN CURTIS and MARY BETH CHAPMAN</p><p>Grammy Award-Winning Artist and <em>New York Times</em> Bestselling Author</p><p>“Laura is one of my heroes when it comes to trusting God.
