Creative Grieving: A Hip Chick’s Path from Loss to Hope 

by Elizabeth Berrien —

Grief is often perceived as a dark and lonely journey; as a result, it is a topic we tend to avoid in today’s society.

Within a 20-month period, Berrien endured the loss of her stillborn son and the subsequent death of her husband in Afghanistan. She found herself a 27-year-old widow whose life had been shattered.

In this book, she shares the experiences, the wisdom and even the joy she gathered on her journey from grief to hope.

Berrien offers support and encouragement, while acknowledging that there is no “right” way to grieve.

She shares the emotions she experienced while grieving in an instant-gratification society, the importance of self-nurturing, balancing grief and motherhood, redefining community and relationships and discovering new passion and meaning.

Her account of grieving will empower you as you cope with loss. Along with personal stories are pieces of “Hip Chick Wisdom” from a community of women, called “Creative Hip Chick Ideas” and a list of resources.

By reading Berrien’s story, you will learn how to find your own creative way of moving through grief to hope and uncovering gifts along the way.
