In Witnessing Ted, Carol Poteat travels to New Mexico's Golden Willow Retreat, founded by Ted Wiard and his wife, Marcella. Carol's mission is to witness Ted's personal account of how he journeyed from loss to recovery following the death of his first wife, brother, two children and mother-in-law. In this intense and compassionate story, we gradually discover the power of conscious healing. Through short vignettes, readers experience the raw, unintellectualized emotion of Ted's losses, which gives them permission to work through their own grief. Poignant photographs and quotes further encourage and inspire the individual's journey to healing, while the keys to understanding and working through grief, revealed through the author's own story, illuminate the path. Witnessing Ted undoubtedly transcends other works that deal with the subject of loss. The grief cycle is said to comprise of five stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance, but this book takes readers through a sixth aspect, relocation, where they will experience a renewed sense of purpose. A licensed clinical therapist, certified grief counselor, and ordained minister, Ted Wiard is also an accomplished international speaker and an author of numerous articles. As a writer, professional coach, and consultant, Carol Poteat's first book demonstrates her ability to facilitate an understanding of complex subject matter. Her life's work is to support people in their goal of self-realization. Through this book, Ted and Carol encourage and guide readers as they progress along their paths. Crafted in a way that will touch hearts and offer hope, this book gently guides us through the pain of our losses to the expression of a wiser, more authentic self.

Following a life shattering experience, a child enters upon a confusing emotional journey that can be likened to a prism of many colors of dark feelings like sadness and fear, but also warm feelings of love and courage. The way they deal with these feelings has a lasting impact on their life as they grow. The Colors of Grief explores strategies for supporting a grieving child to ensure a healthy growth into adulthood. Drawing on the latest research in neurology and psychology, Janis Di Ciacco illustrates the child's grieving process using a model of development that employs `key stages'. These range from preverbal infancy (0-2 years) through to early adulthood (about 25 years). She shows how a child's progress through these stages can be impaired by an early encounter with loss, which can contribute to cognitive, emotional and social difficulties. Drawing connections between bereavement, attachment issues and social dysfunction, the author suggests easy-to-use activities for intervention at each key stage, including infant massage, aromatherapy and storytelling. This is a revealing and accessible book for both parents and professionals working with, or caring for, bereaved infants, children or young adults.

God allows suffering because He knows how powerful it can be to our spiritual lives and to helping us fully embrace His love and mercy.
