Surviving Grief and Loss: How the Broken-hearted Finds Comfort, Hope and Meaning in Jesus Christ

written by Shefflorn Ballantyne


One of the loneliest times of a person’s life is when faced with grief and loss. Hope and comfort seem far from SURVIVING GRIEFgrasp and the questions emerge. Where can I find meaning in life? Will I survive this feeling of loss? How can I move on?

SURVIVING GRIEF AND LOSS is written by an author who himself faced these questions through personal loss.

This book offers you a new perspective on grief and provides answers to the quest for meaning and purpose at a time of loss. His personal experience in surviving grief from the loss of his father at age 10 and the aid of the Holy Scriptures in handling tragic losses have equipped him to provide counsels to help anyone faced with this common reality.

Rooted in the principles of Holy Scriptures, SURVIVING GRIEF AND LOSS is a tool for all who need a clear vision beyond their grief.


Shefflorn recalls the times when he lost both his parents and other family members at a young age. He describes the various stages of grief and how he dealt with each of these stages. As we read his book, our understanding of death and the stages of grief grow because Shefflorn talks from experience and uses Scripture Verses to make sense of death and dying.
I love how the Scripture Verses provide clarity and recommend this book to anyone who is grieving the loss of a loved one.


Shefflorn Ballantyne was born in Sandy Bay, a small village in the beautiful paradise islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

He has been lecturing at the SVG Community College for over 8 years in the discipline of business accounting. He enjoys teaching the scriptures, spending time with family and playing his violin.

Shefflorn loves writing. At age 13 he thought of becoming a writer of mysteries, but today is dedicated to writing Christian books.

He is a Christian minister in the Thusia Seventh Day Adventist Church and wrote his first book Immortality, Death and the Hereafter in March 2016.
