Kathleen Maxwell-Rambie, a staff member at BCFS Health and Human Services, turned her personal experience and professional expertise with “Thriving Through Seasons of Grief: How to Overcome Life’s Disappointments, Change and Loss.” The book provides readers with a definition of grief, why it’s important, and tips for readers to manage grief and move forward with happiness.
BCFS Health and Human Services is part of a global nonprofit organization that helps adults with disabilities, youth from foster care, low-income parents, families in crisis, minors separated from their families, orphaned children, foster or adoptive families, victims of domestic violence, homeless youth, expectant mothers, and others facing hardship. Maxwell-Rambie works in communication, development, and community services, and has been with the organization since 2011.
After losing her husband of 30 years, Maxwell-Rambie needed to go through a painful and protracted grieving process. As she allowed herself to mourn and heal, she realized there’s a lack of understanding and transparency about grief. She decided to help others through the book, noting that grief is universal, so everyone will at some point need to understand and embrace grief as a central part of life. Her book gives readers a “tool kit” of strategies and skills to help them manage grief and other challenges.
Multiple BCFS Health and Human Services’ staff members report enjoying the book, noting Maxwell-Rambie promotes the positives that can come from grief. They also say her book provides them with a way to heal a grieving heart, so they can mourn their loss, but then move ahead with happiness and purpose.
