Grieving the Child - Journaling Book
We go through a wonderful journaling book. If you have had a loss before, you should be able to reach out to Luke's Boxes and receive this journal for free when donating for a box.
The other book we read is Pam Vandervelt's book "Empty Arms" - required reading.
This is another book we go over and written by Alan Wolfelt - he understands how to work with grieving mothers and fathers. He has written many books about grief.
This book goes over 10 Touchstones of Grief and these touchstones we cover in all the modules of our 7 module course.
"Becoming a Certified Sorrowful Doula has been the best decision...I had been seeking a pro-life course and this is about the only one out there that respects life and does not suggest abortion in the course!" Jenni P.
