A spiritually-based program to support adults who are grieving the death of a loved one 

Grief experts Khris Ford and Janie Cook lead participants through an 8-week program, training individuals on how to lead a small group who gather once a week to explore the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual impact that loss creates. Through interactive discussions, stories, scripture and activities the group will explore healthy ways of re-membering their loved ones, re-shaping their lives after loss and re-imagining the beauty and hope that can still be experienced. Includes a Facilitator's/Participant's Guide in an accompanying 64-page booklet.
