In the past two years, I’ve lost over 20 friends and family members, and right now I have several friends who are in the midst of grieving losses of friends and loved ones. Grief and mourning don’t just apply to the loss of people we love, but also the loss of dreams, hopes, expectations, possessions, jobs, and so much more. In this post, my friend, Donna Fagerstrom, author of Every Mourning, shares how to navigate grief and loss.
My friend, Donna Fagerstrom, and I talk about how to deal with grief. Donna shares the truths she learned during her own grief journey and in walking with others through the grieving process. There are so many different ways we have experienced grief, loss, and mourning over the past couple of years. We need to give ourselves permission to grieve. We can maintain our hope, because Jesus is our hope, and become an overcomer through the tough times.
