From Grieving to Changing Lives is an inspirational non-fiction book by Dr. Nadine MOUNZER-KARAM. The book presents life's challenges and victories from a fresh perspective. It describes how to put your life back together after something dreadful has happened.

The author wrote about her life and everything she had been through, from losing her business to a terrible bomb blast to losing a brother who was equally like a son to her. While dealing with that, she lost a 5-month-old pregnancy (stillbirth). Then her favorite aunt died. As if that was not enough, she lost her dad five days later. She grieved hard for losing the most important people in her life. She grieved to the point of almost committing suicide. However, with everything that happened, she could still gather strength and make something good out of the ugly experiences. How was she able to turn those negative situations around? Read From Grieving to Changing Lives to find out.

Dr. Nadine's experiences are moving and inspiring. I admire her for the resilience with which she faced adversity. I commend her strength and intelligence. Everyone who reads the book will love her commitment to assisting others in getting out of their challenges. I also appreciate how universal her story is. Almost everyone can identify with the pain of losing a loved one or the frustration of struggling to overcome obstacles. I'm glad we have great people like Dr. Nadine MOUNZER-KARAM to help us overcome life's challenges.

The book's title is immediately captivating. It is sure to pique readers' interest and is a beautiful fit for the content. Her writing style is effortless to read and understand, the pages are correctly numbered, and the book is concise. The author doesn't bore her readers with so many unnecessary stories. Even after each chapter and piece of writing, the author includes a page with questions for her audience to consider. She hopes people will feel safe enough to share their stories and come to terms with the truth that they aren't alone in whatever they are going through. There is the hope of getting a better life after everything. This book does not cater to any particular faith or audience. Everyone can read this book and gain something from it.

The author focused on her own story from her point of view. She said there was no one right way to grieve, and no one deserved to be criticized for their method. I also learned to put myself first, like she did when she realized that putting her family's happiness before her own was hurting them more. I admired her initiative in creating this medium through which her readers could gain insight into her experiences. The book taught me a lot about life and motivated me to keep going despite my difficulties.

From Grieving to Changing Lives can be a guide to anyone dealing with loss. Therefore, I recommend it to people going through the pain of losing a loved one. There's nothing to dislike about this book. The editing is good, as there are only two errors. From Grieving to Changing Lives is a perfect book. Therefore, I'm giving it a rating of five out of five stars.

Wao, this is a whole cow for just one person to chew. Several deaths knocking on her door. Fortunately, she survived the suicidal instincts and projected the experiences to having a new beginning. Reminds me of when I lost my mother. I did not know I would survive the moment. It's 5 years now and am still grieving. I can't imagine what she went through. It's better not imagined. Thank you for piquing my interest in this book, I will certainly go for a pick if it's available for review in the near future.

Learning from others is such an underrated gift. We sometimes go through some experiences that we can't comprehend until somebody puts them in words and we relate and find comfort and healing. I'd love to read this book.
