“Griefshare gave me the peace of mind that all the emotions I was feeling after my wife Vereda passed away were normal and expected. If you do not know this, you think you are going crazy because every thought goes through your head. It was good to have small group sessions and a facilitator to bounce ideas off of. One of the GriefShare counselors said that that when you depend on talking to yourself for help, you are not the best person to get direction from. I highly recommend Griefshare.”–Lee Williams
“I used to think of grief as a storm; the force knocks you off your feet mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Through GriefShare I’ve learned that grief is a journey. That mental shift was key to reaching deeper understanding and insight into the many losses in my life, some of which occurred decades ago… I highly recommend GriefShare, whether you’re on the first step of the journey or have been traveling through it sometime.”–GriefShare Participant
SURVIVING THE HOLIDAYS
Another GriefShare event happens each November at TLC is Surviving The Holidays. Facing a holiday after the death of a loved one can be more difficult than your friends and even family members may realize. The GriefShare “Surviving the Holidays” DVD, discussion group and devotional material will help you not only to survive the holidays, but to find strength, healing and tools to move forward in your daily walk through the deep pain of grief.
The next Surviving The Holidays will be Sunday, November 8 - 1:30-3:30 PM
