A Journal of Spiritual and Practical Deathcare for Family and Community
Nancy Jewel Poer
Living into Dying is a grace-filled book. I really can’t do any better at describing it than to share with you the following from the back of the book:
Here is a family who celebrated their elders, nursed them at home to die, built their caskets, honored and cared for them after death and then went out into the community to help others who wanted to do the same.
Living into Dying is a moving and beautiful book. I am grateful that Nancy has shared her wisdom and experience. It will benefit both present and future generations. Death is a sacred passage, and Nancy’s work teaches us to approach it with reverence, respect, and naturalness.
“The stories are awe-inspiring, the practical advice is invaluable, and the explorations of spiritual meaning give depth and richness. Living into Dying will serve as a true guidebook for all those who celebrate life, community and human striving for what is good and right.”
- Rev. April Herron-Sweet United Methodist Pastor
“Every aspect of caring for the dying is in this book, from “building a casket” to “connecting with those who have died.”
