Featured Article: Audiobooks About Grief That Actually Help

When it comes to the death of a loved one, there is no easy path forward. Grieving can place significant mental strain on those who are mourning. And because everyone grieves a little differently, it can be hard to know where to turn for help, or what to say to someone who is in the throes of grief. There are no simple answers. These soothing, cathartic, and deeply personal listens can offer warmth and guidance when things feel particularly dark and lonely.

Recording From Scratch

"On the seventh day, I finished. There are few words to adequately express the feelings that come with reading your own book – page by page, chapter by chapter, story by story – from beginning to end. I laughed, I cried, I cringed, I reflected, I gave thanks. I spoke three languages and realized how many prepositions I dropped. HA!

But mostly, I thanked the universe for this moment. When I came to the end, I felt deep gratitude. For all of it – the living, the writing, the sharing.

....I’ll never forget the quiet, intimate seven days I got to spend alone in a sound booth telling my story."
—Tembi Locke, Author of From Scratch
