A Guide, Healing Journal, and Keepsake.

Losing a pet can be devastating and isolating. The trauma and grief that ensues is often trivialized or misunderstood by friends and family but it is unyielding and must be attended to. Griffin’s Heart is an unwavering companion during the most difficult time and provides the reader with practical tools to navigate grief and ultimately find comfort, hope, and healing.

How it works:

  • Read at your own pace — chapters are short and contained
  • Complete the exercises at the end of each chapter
  • Place photos throughout — 9 photo pages provided
  • Save notes, cards, and mementos in the keepsake pocket

Comfort & Companionship

First and foremost, Griffin’s heart is a book. Chapters are short, contained, easy to digest, and can even be read out of order. The author speaks directly to the reader, as if she were sitting right there in the room.

Insight Through Journaling

Griffin’s Heart teaches us to embrace and explore our darkest feelings and transform them into wisdom and strength. Through guided journaling, the reader can stay focused on love and precious memories.
