Grief CareThis is a Grief Ministry Resource for churches to support individuals through their grief journeys. The Journey in Grief Care course will give the leader confidence and skill to work with those who have just lost their loved one. Designed for the leader to teach in a group setting, or for the individual to take the course at home.

Grief Training & Grief Support Curriculum For Churches & Individuals

All our materials are written for the churches to help support their ministry to those who have lost loved ones. It is written to comfort people who have lost their loved one, increase their knowledge of what God says about death and the hereafter, and eventually equip them to be an active partner in the church’s care team.

Hope Beyond Today is a six week program consisting of one hour sessions. Each session begins with a 30 minute DVD, which is followed by discussion time for the group to share their own thoughts, words of encouragement and comfort. It is the purpose of Hope Beyond Today to provide hurting people with practical ways to deal with their pain as a result of a life changing loss.

I wanted to share this resource I found through my friend, Ferree, who has a very informative website for widows:

I used to think people only grieved when a love one died. After my first husband died, I  learned more about grief. I realized people go through grief over many reasons. Perhaps if we know we’re going through grief, such as stages of depression or anger, we’ll realize there’s logic to why we feel the way we do. This short clip may bring more understanding to grief experiences from losses we may never have thought about…..

stock-photo-46786344-woman-at-cemetery[1]Top 10 Rights for anyone grieving:

  1. You have the right to experience your own unique grief.
  2. You have the right to talk about your grief.
  3. You have the right to feel a multitude of emotions.

See more…..

For anyone who is going through grief, it’s an individual experience. Each person, who is grieving, has a set of rights. If others can understand this, and allow the griever these rights, they can move along in their grief healthier and possibly sooner than if they are prevented from experiencing these rights.

Check out the “Mourner’s Bill of Rights” from grief expert, Dr. Alan Wolfelt. This was posted from a blogger friend who has a fantastic website Heartache To Healing, from JoAnne Funch. JoAnne’s website  offers, “Compassionate Grief Support to Heal Your Heart and Soul”. She has many guest bloggers who offer HOPE and INSPIRATION

People who are grieving need to know that they’re not going crazy but have their own “rights” to allow them the freedom to grieve however they need to!

stock-photo-transform-your-thinking-on-blackboard-background-238546603[1]What does it take to transform a widow’s grief into a renewed life?

My friend, Ferree Hardy, has compiled 5 Turning Points in scripture to be aware of to help in a Widow’s Transformation. As Ferree writes on her blog, Widow’s Christian Place, she states that grief is not our destination but part of a journey of love. “We grieve because we’ve loved.”

Ferree suggests how we can watch for turning points in a widow’s grief with Wisdom, Knowing God Better, Contentment, Gratitude and Purpose.

Follow Ferree’s link to her website and see how she uses scripture references to help in 5 Turning Points That Help Transform Grief for Widows.
