  • Author Nancy Shaffer

    Nancy Shaffer (1950-2012) was a Unitarian Universalist minister, a poet, and the author of Instructions in Joy: Meditations (Skinner House Books, 2002). She served congregations in Carmel, California; Glen Allen, Virginia; Evanston, Illinois; and Ann Arbor, Michigan.

In 2011, Nancy Shaffer’s life suddenly changed when she was diagnosed with a fatal brain tumor.

Here is her heartrending and heartwarming account of her final year as she came to terms with impending death. Part journal, part reflection, and fully honest, Shaffer’s account of her journey through denial to peaceful acceptance will lend inspiration and courage to those in need, and insight to those who give pastoral care.
