Grieving is a process. I have known that for years but it was just this year that I fully understood. It is far more than a one step journey, and it is different for every person who faces loss. A friend of mine shared about an Internet ministry called Grief Share that offers help through the grieving process. He told me about this ministry right after Kristy passed, and I have been greatly blessed by it. 

Grief Share is a wonderful ministry help for those who have lost a loved one. I highly recommend it. On their web page you can read more about it, but here is a part of their intro that I copied. It reads, "Grief Share is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone."

One special part of Grief Share is the daily email they send to those who subscribe. You can go to to sign up. Every day for 365 days they will send an email that will offer new insight and help to cope with the loss of a dear one. 

Each day I receive an amail early in the morning that is written to offer insight and guidance through the dark hurt of loss. It has helped me. Maybe you know someone who could use a daily encouragement. Tell them about Grief Share. It might help them when they are all alone and wonder if they will make it.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. A good friend of mine just lost her husband suddenly...he was 31 and they have two small children - a 3 year old and a 6 month old. Praise the Lord that she is a firm believer and is holding fast to Christ right now, but I think this might help too.

    Thank you and God bless you in your journey. You are an amazing witness to so many.
