For I will turn their mourning into joy - Jeremiah 31:13
When you lose so many people in your life, somehow or another, you become like a poster girl for grief. Other people would dread the title but it is something that I have taken in stride. Through my losses, I have found my life's purpose and God's mission for me here on earth. This is the reason behind this third, and most recent blog and a new ministry that God has directed my husband and me into.On November 18, 2006, my husband H and I will launch Griefshare at the Greenhills Christian Fellowship in Ortigas.
A new session begins on Friday, FEBRUARY 22, 2008 at the same venue.
Griefshare is a special seminar and support group for people grieving the loss of someone close. If you've lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you've probably found that there are not many peopl who understand the depth of what you feel.Griefshare is sponsored by people who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during a very difficult time. Sessions are held every Saturday, beginning November 18, 2006 from 2-4PM.
Each Griefshare meeting includes a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. Small group discussions about what you have seen on the DVD and interaction with others who have experienced recent similar losses are part of each meeting. Topics to be tackled are the following : The Emotions of Grief, Your Family and Grief, Where is God?, Stuck in Grief Or Moving On, Growing Through Grief, Grief Recovery Tool Kit, and many more. For those of you interested to join Griefshare or know of people who may benefit from the seminar, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 918-906-8852 to sign up and find out more information on the program.
Griefshare is a non-denominational group and features biblical teaching on grief and recovery topics. Please feel free to check on this blog regularly for grief related topics. If you are currently experiencing a loss and there are issues or questions you may have on loss or grief and feel that you need help, please feel free to email me at the address above or post a question on this site. Prayer requests are most welcome too.
