What does it take to face death, loss, and grief with confidence and peace? Cheryl Eckl is reluctantly forced to play hostess to life's most unwelcome guest when her husband, Stephen, is diagnosed with terminal cancer and given a few short years to live. In A Beautiful Death, her powerful insights, moving story, and unerring guidance show us that we all have the inner resources to face death, and the future, with peace. In fact, she says, with the proper preparation this experience, while rarely easy, can be profoundly beautiful. A Beautiful Death is a compassionate and honest approach to death as an integral part of life-how to think about it, talk about it, and prepare for it. Eckl helps us overcome our fear and avoidance of painful end-of-life issues as she gently takes us by the hand on a transformative journey through loss and unspeakable grief. Her sensitive and deftly written work will help you engage the intensity of life's deepest sorrow so you can rise up strengthened and able to greet life's most profound joy. You will explore five liberating steps for facing the end of life, whether your own or a loved one's. Above all, you'll find the comfort you need to fully embrace the unwelcome guest with grace, confidence, and peace.
