Grief, as a feeling or emotion, can take many forms. Most involve loss of one kind or another on a personal level such as losing a close relation or friend thru death or emotional breakup. A person also experiences grief when they lose other things that are close to them, such as when they quit smoking (they grieve the loss of cigarettes) or even after a car accident (they grieve the loss of a favored car). Grief comes into our lives in many ways and learning to recognize and appropriately deal with it allow us to become a more serene, satisfied child of God. (See: Isaiah 53:4)
In this group, we will work on learning how to recognize and deal with our own grief in different areas of life, and also learn to recognize grief in others and learn how to help them. Members input here in the group is very much welcome and the only requirement for membership is that you have a desire to learn to recognize, cope, and work thru grief that you may have or help others to do so.


GROUP LEADER The Group leader for this group is Annette McEndarfer.

    • My condolences as well my dear. I'm sending up prayers as I type. Please take care of yourself this is a stressful time of year anyway and you are going through it worse than some of the rest of us are. You are loved here and we want you to be careful and I'll be praying for you and yours. GOD Bless.
    • Annette my dear sister, please accept my condolences for the passing of your stepfather, you and your family are in my prayers and thoughts. I pray that those of your family who do not yet know the Lord find Him through this loss, I ask you Jesus, that through your Spirit you use this loss to extend your hand and draw Annette's family to you, in love compassion and comfort. Amen.
    • Thank you so very much Derek! I will be heading out in less than a week for about a week, for the 9 hour drive to Massachusetts to be with my extended family. I sure would appreciate continued prayers... there is a great deal of tension between my step sister and my Mom and one of my sisters.
    • Annette, my sister, you have been in my prayers for a long time, even when you were not posting here, because I missed your grounded logic on this site, I have no idea why, we will never meet and I really don't know you, but the Spirit some sort of affinity between us, and He kept reminding me to pray for you. I will pray fervently that the Spirit intervenes in your family tensions, and that it does not affect you.
    • Not sure how I missed this Derek, but thank you. Those words mean a great deal to me as does knowing I've been brought before the throne. The Lord is good. My time with my family was very hard but yet there was much good. It's so hard to watch people you love grieve without hope. I felt at a loss so many times when they would say things about death and dying that simply were not truth. I was able to share some but it felt so insignificant.
  • Welcome Sister Terri! We are mighty happy to have you join us. We also welcome any input you wish to share. :-)
  • I look forward to being a part of this group to heal and to help others in the healing process. I am presently seeking out to attend a local bereavement group for support but there is nothing better than to fellowship with others in faith during the grieving process. Loss is a part of life. Having others to share all the experiences associated with losing loved ones, friends, beloved pets, and other difficult changes in our lives is such a blessing. The Bible promises that "where two or more are gathered in my name I am there in the midst." We gather together in Christ's
    name through this site and with His presence there is healing! May God bless you as you travel your journey of healing. As we are healed we then in turn can be a healing grace to others.
  • One of my multitude of cousins put this out on FB and I don't know if she wrote it or just who did. This cousin is the daughter-in-law of the uncle of mine who recently passed, her name is Sarah Shultz and she is an RN. Here is the quote please think a bout it and let me know what you think:
    Be the things you loved the most about the people who are gone.
    • In living out those qualities of those people you loved so much you continue to honor their lives and pass on the blessing they were to you and to others. This way they are always close to you. What a beautiful and profound statement. What a wonderful way to activate the healing process of losing them in a tangible and empowering way.
      My closest friend from college is now dying. I will tell her that I will "try" to live out those qualities that I love most about her and cherish her for in order to honor her Godly life. Thank you Terry for this heart felt quote you shared! It has indeed brought so much comfort to me in dealing with this loss.
  • I was asked to get a psychiatric evaluation about 6 weeks ago and yesterday I followed through with it. After I gave my psych history, and an explanation of why I had been referred, I was given some feedback that I think maybe most all of us who care enough about what is happening around us can use even though we don't have the same life experiences. We all do have those but they differ from one person to another. I was told that she felt what was happening to me right now is that I've let my everyday life wear me down because I am the last one that I take care of (so true for many people) and you add to that the 3 losses in the last couple of months, I'm on overload. However, from life experiences I can look back on and use them to help myself and I hope you and others as well. It is my belief that when the Holy Spirit touched our hearts and gave us faith in the LORD He also gave us a fire inside that is meant to help ourselves and others by sharing and giving support. I am by no means a therapist or psychiatrist, and do not want to be, however, I still feel compelled by my faith that helping others not only helps them but myself as well. Let's keep those fires within lit and ready for action. We can and will help each other and ourselves as well. GOD Bless!
