This is a guided journal. Donnette begins with a page about loss and healing:
"When someone close to you dies, the impact is life-changing . . . . In the midst of grief, it's often hard to know what you need. One thing that can help is to realize that your spirit has suffered a very serious wound . . . . "
She then briefly introduces the journal pages:
"A journal is a place where your heart can speak in privacy and freedom. It is a place where it is safe to be completely honest about what you are thinking and how you are feeling. It can uncover thoughts and emotions you may be scarcely aware of."
Pages 10 through 93 provide space for journaling. At the upper left and lower right of each page spread are thoughts and quotations on grief, healing, and afterlife. Some quotes are from the Bible and others are from a wide variety of sources, such as John Adams, Shakespeare, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emanuel Swedenborg, Helen Keller, and Charles Lindbergh. After the journaling pages, Donnette concludes with some text about afterlife, and then provides a list of "Recommended Reading" books about grief recovery and about afterlife.
