Peaceful Passage

Peaceful Passage by Kim West

About The Book:
Peaceful Passage is truly the essential, all-in-one guide to handling every aspect of caring for a dying loved one and yourself on their final journey. Included are guidelines for partnering with hospice, the how-to of daily care, confronting fears and emotional issues, navigating marriage, family, children and career, working through inner conflicts with faith and handling the myriad details and arrangements of an at-home death. With this book as the guide the reader can find peace in this most heart-wrenching and heartwarming of journeys.

My Thoughts:
It was a bit hard for me to get through this guide-book, after still recently losing my youngest son in a fast and tragic way. There was no way to prepare me for that, at all. But the parts of the book - about healing within yourself were helpful. This book is also sort of a "heads-up" for me to prepare for my grandparents deaths, which will be sooner rather than later. A helpful book for someone who is caring for a terminal loved one.

About The Author:
Kim West is a counselor, author and teacher who has a heart for helping people find healing, make sense of their lives and have hope for their futures. She holds a PhD in Clinical Pastoral Counseling and a Master of Divinity. Her newest book, "Peaceful Passage," is a combination of her counseling and teaching skills and her skills acquired while caring for her dying mother.
