Before my son died, I was THAT person.
I found it difficult to know what to say or do when a friend or acquaintance experienced the loss of a loved one. Looking back, I shudder to think about it. Most often, I offered awkward clichés or an ill-timed Bible verse. To avoid saying the wrong thing, I would choose complete avoidance.
Can you relate at all?
My grief journey has provided a significant education at a very dear price. My friends, co-workers and family have taught me the enormous value of compassionate grief companions. My commitment to you is to share my learnings.
Grief can be very isolating. Grieving within a supportive community fosters healing.
Together, you and I are going to transform our culture one heart at a time. We can’t fix the pain, but we can help to carry it! Lofty goal? Perhaps, but worth striving for!
I want you to discover, firsthand, the life-giving ways you can be the hero in someone else’s grief story.
Are you ready to join me?
