Zenspirations Art by Joanne Fink
Joanne entrusted me with a prototype copy of this little book and I’m telling you, it seriously has some healing powers.

It is a project very near and dear to her heart. Joanne Fink began making the illustrated pages while she was grieving the sudden loss of her beloved husband. Each spread is something to cherish as it explores an emotion that everyone who has dealt with loss experiences on some level. I first read the prototype while I was accompanying Joanne at the Atlanta Gift Show. As we made our way around the Mart, she showed it to many trusted people. They would listen to her story and quietly take it aside to read. Every single one, after reading the book came back in tears. Lots of healing tears. I was afraid to read the whole myself in public after seeing this happen each time, but I will never forget the day I did. Joanne tenderly and loving takes you through the emotions you cope with after any kind of loss. Since then, three of my dear family members passed into Glory and her book has been a source of comfort as we adjust to life without them here by our side. I wish more people could experience it.

If you have lost a loved one, even if you think you are finished grieving, this book will remind you of your beautiful memories and remind you of the enduring love you have for that person. Love is eternal.
