This course will explore how to overcome in life's disappointments, change and grief. Grief is a past of life and when embraced can benefit and make you a better person. There are many different kinds of grief beyond the loss of a loved one. Grief can be experienced in the loss of a job, moving to a new location, children leaving home, death of a dream, divorce and major disappointment in life. We will explore letting go, the benefits of grief, healing of your heart, and how to thrive in seasons of loss. The course is also designed to help friends and family of someone grieving, to better understand those they love. Grief is a great teacher that can teach us much about understanding ourselves and others. Our speaker, author, podcaster and newspaper columnist, will share from her own personal journey of losing a baby, her husband of 30 years and both of her parents, as well as other losses, helping each participant find beauty in the ashes of life. Her new book, Thriving Through Seasons of Grief, has just been released and will be available after the class. Kathleen transparently shares, motivating and encouraging offering hope to her audiences. She is a regular columnist for Kerrville Daily Times Faith Section, writes for Hill Country Community Journal and the Uvalde Leader News, sharing in a very down-to-earth way, about bringing God into our everyday life.
