Grief is real, painful, and often doesn’t make sense. Although grief can take us by surprise, it can also help us focus on things that matter most and refine our perspective on life, death, and our worldview. In spite of the overwhelming darkness one may face in grief, the follower of Christ can maintain hope.
– A first-hand perspective on grief that offers encouragement and hope.
– Wise counsel from a trained counselor that is both practical and theologically-sound.
– Well-written stories that communicate universal experiences.
