Grief is a process to work through; that's why it's called 'grief work.' Having a knowledgeable coach to walk with arm-in-arm can be a valuable way to learn how to grieve. -- Debra Philips

Relying on God has to begin again every day as if it had never been done. We need to trust that Jesus is there for us and enough for us in times of crisis. Jesus said, “surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age and peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you….let not your hearts be troubled." These are truths which can prepare us to respond when crisis and fear come into our lives. - C.S. Lewis
