Grief: Living at Peace with Loss
How do you cope when a deep or tragic loss leaves you feeling empty, angry, or alone? Coping with the loss of a loved one or any type of loss requires healing, and healing is a journey. While there are no shortcuts through the stages of grief, God promises not to leave you in the valley of despair. June Hunt has counseled those who grieve for over 25 years, and this book will gently and truthfully lead you through the stages of grief and into joy once again.
There are all types of grief; from the normal expression you feel when something tragic and unexpected happens, such as the loss of a loved one, to chronic grief and repressed grief. This Christian book will help you determine what may have caused grief in your life and help you on the steps to recovery. Learn what "grief work" is and how it can help you commit to working through difficult grief and the stress that goes along with it. The effects of not experiencing healthy grief work may result in becoming isolated, insulated, inverted, immortalized, and denying your grief altogether.
In the section titled, "Steps to Solution," June Hunt gives you practical advice on how to:
- Navigate through the Stages of Grief
- Resolve Grief Caused by True Guilt
- Move from Crisis to Contentment
- Let Go, Say Goodbye, and Find Peace
- Encourage Others to Overcome Loss
As you place your seasons of sorrow in God's hands, He promises to take you from sadness to strength, from pain to peace, and from darkness to the dawn of a new day. Experience God's peace for today and His hope for a vibrant, happy tomorrow.

For more than 25 years, she has counseled people, offering them hope for today's problems.

Early family pain was the catalyst that shaped June's compassionate heart. Later, as a youth director, she became aware of the need for sound biblical counsel. After years of teaching and research, she developed a scripturally based counseling course covering topics such as marriage and parenting, depression and anger, stress and suicide. These topics are now available as the Aspire Press "Hope for the Heart" booklets.

"Hope in the Night" is June's live two-hour call-in counseling program that helps people untie their tangled problems on air. Through her warmth, wisdom, and gentle candor, June prompts penetrating dialogue with listeners, often with life-changing results.
