For people grieving the loss of a loved one, the holiday season can feel hurtful and sad. They are faced with social gatherings, holiday cheer, and special traditions that had always involved their loved one. Whether the loss was recent or years ago, this season is a painful reminder that their loved one is no longer here to celebrate. While the holidays can intensify grief, GriefShare’s Surviving the Holidays will bring reassurance, practical advice, and a way forward through the season. My prayer is that God will use this event to bring His comfort, hope, and direction to grieving people this holiday season.
