Restoring Hope for Families of Veterans with PTSD

by Welby O’Brien

Chances are that if your loved one has seen war or been exposed to severe trauma, he or she has PTSD at some level, and you who love them will also be deeply and profoundly affected.

The rampant number of veterans and everyday citizens struggling with PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder) is shocking, affecting millions, and continues to rise at alarming rates. You may not have PTSD, but if you are living with someone who does, you are suffering from it as well.


Goodbye For Now

All-in-one practical guide for impending loss, or grief following the loss of a loved one

Practical Help and Personal Hope for Those Who Grieve

What makes Goodbye for Now unique is its extremely practical emphasis. In addition, it’s a gold mine of help all in one book, providing structure, guidance, and comfort amid the overwhelming chaos of grief.

This book is a long-awaited, desperately needed resource. It has value for everyone…from millenials to generation x-ers to baby boomers and on up, all who could lose a loved one, and all who want to be prepared for their own “goodbye.”

Not only is this book tremendously valuable for those who have just lost a loved one, it is even more effective when people can have it IN ADVANCE.

A must-have for all, regardless of where one is on their spiritual journey.

Be prepared…for YOU and for your FAMILY.
