"I am so glad that Rachel wrote this book so she can continue to help more people live with loss. She has a special gift for imparting small and manageable ideas that can profoundly impact someone grieving. Loss is never easy, but Rachel's words and wisdom can help make the journey a bit more bearable and perhaps even more meaningful."—Sharon Liese, from the foreword Living with Loss offers daily encouragement to individuals and families who have recently lost a loved one. The short entries are easy to read and give realistic, practical advice to guide readers through the day. By providing tools and suggestions that offer hope, optimism, introspection, and self-discovery, this book enables readers to embrace the happy days of life with their loved one and gently guide them through their grief.


As a motivational speaker, author, grief consultant, and facilitator, Rachel Kodanaz tackles today's challenges to help provide encouragement to those who are suffering a loss or setback. She entered the grief world in 1992 when her husband suddenly passed away, leaving her with a two-year-old daughter. Her experience in the management of large corporations led her to develop and publish material about how to support grief and loss in the workplace. Rachel is a columnist for Living with Loss Magazine and has published numerous articles and handbooks on grief. She speaks nationally to various groups and has appeared on Good Morning America. Her passion drives her to help other grievers who are suffering losses by actively supporting national grief and loss programs, including Camp Widow, Facing the Mourning©, employee assistant programs, and human resource endeavors.
