Having encountered unexpected moments of grace in her own grief journey, writer Jan Groft set out to find others who had felt lifted, even momentarily, out of their sorrow. "As a caregiver or survivor," she asked, "what got you through each day? What did hope look like?"
Their answers — a generous outpouring of stories from men and women who had graciously accepted the divine amidst the darkness — affirmed her own experiences of feeling embraced in times of loss. They revealed nine healing gifts of grace, inspiring the hope-filled message of As We Grieve.
Groft is the author of a memoir, Riding the Dog: My Father's Journey Home. Formerly President/Creative Director of an award-winning advertising agency, she also uses her communication skills listening to the dying and those they leave behind, working with hospice patients and facilitating writing workshops for the bereaved. An MFA in Writing graduate of Vermont College, she lives and writes in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
