A Practical Resource for Grief Group Leaders

Marty McNunn understands that coping with the death of a loved one is among life’s most difficult challenges. And denying or glossing over the confusion and loneliness of grief only prolongs and even intensifies the pain. McNunn’s new book, A Group I Never Wanted to Join is for individuals who are struggling with the death of someone near to them; it is intended to help them come to terms with their loss and how it affects them. The book is also a practical resource for grief group leaders looking for material to support their efforts to help grieving people.

A Group I Never Wanted to Join defines the common feelings, symptoms, and stages of grief, and also dispels many of the myths about this lifelong process. There are personal stories of different kinds of loss, including the death of a spouse, child, parent, and suicide. Marty McNunn has most recently served as a Lay Pastor of Congregational Care for Hastings United Methodist Church in Hastings, Minnesota. She is also a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist, and has spent time as a missionary with Youth With a Mission. Originally from California, McNunn lives in Hastings, Minnesota.
