About the Book

Imagine bidding farewell to a loved one in the morning and taking that same person off life-support in the evening. Rules for Engaging Grief tells the story of author Terrence Douglas's journey to regain his emotional and spiritual well-being following a tragic and sudden accident that claimed his wife of thirty-nine years. In sharing his journey and the insights gained, he invites everyone to a similar healing.

Douglas employs scripture readings, quotations, prayer, personal reflection, and his poetry to help the healing of those who have experienced deep loss. Rules for Engaging Grief features thirty-nine rules or lessons Douglas discovered during his journey through the grief and healing process, one for each year of his marriage to Donna. They include releasing your anger, befriending depression, writing your own script, exploring intuitive prayer, staying in the now and more. At times, Douglas challenges conventional wisdom that offers clich├ęs of support by encouraging those who suffer deeply to face grief and loss directly and responsibly.

Rules for Engaging Grief illustrates more than a process. It is a careful strategy for regaining wholeness, and it offers an inner stillness and joy.
