Mark Negley has walked the dark and difficult road of grief recovery, and since dedicated his life to helping others through difficult life experiences. In Survive-Alive-Thrive, Mark uses his story and the stories of several others to teach a new model of grief recovery from the perspective of those who have experienced loss themselves. Most importantly, readers will know that they are not alone in their experience or on their journey; they can navigate from loss to hope, and then from hope to happiness. They don’t have to settle for survival; they can thrive again.
