“Were Phyllis Tickle here to celebrate desired outcomes, a resounding chorus would be heard for what she considered a vital resource, well attuned to the essential, healing work of the Sacred Dying Foundation, whose mission and founder she held in high regard. Written and designed to prod the living to confront and illuminate the unavoidable path ahead, this volume is a tool to build tolerance for looking full-face into our mortality.” —Laura Palermo, née Tickle
“This journal is truly a gift most worthy to be explored in depth. In using it with integrity, one opens the heart to the deeper personal mysteries of death and dying.” — Barry R. Howe, retired Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of West Missouri

It’s never too early to begin exploring and embracing the reality of our mortality.” —Rosemary Lloyd, Advisor to Faith Communities, The Conversation Project
“Megory Anderson has gifted all of us with a tool to assist us in reflecting upon and expressing our wishes around our dying. She has gleaned wisdom around what our dying can mean, not only to ourselves, but to those who accompany us.

Sacred Dying Journal is a wonderfully sensitive, compassionate and thought-provoking resource that engages the reader with a series of questions dealing with the end-of-life issues.

Gentzler, Jr., author of Aging and Ministry in the 21st Century
