Look for Grief Notes, a new feature on A Way for Hope. These very short bits of information about grief and healing can help people you know. People who are grieving. People who want to comfort them. Perhaps, even you. Find Grief Notes on the sidebar of our blog and, occasionally, as a blog post. If you are using our mobile version, scroll down to the bottom of the page.
How can we help someone who is grieving? Speak openly and honestly.
Example: "I don't know exactly how you feel right now, but I know you are hurting. And I care about you very much."
(Oh, and if you need a resource for a specific situation related to grief and healing, check our Resources page or send us an email describing what you would like to see using the email icon at the far top right of every page or the "Want blog updates?" form in the sidebar on blog pages.)
Way for Hope
My name is Jan McDaniel. I speak grief. I also speak peace and healing. I started A Way for Hope blog and website to house projects I create that might help others who are grieving. The blog has expanded to include guest posts by my dear friends and fellow survivors who wanted to speak hope for others, too.
We understand how difficult losing someone you love is. We know how much it means to hear from others further along on this journey and how it is possible to live a life of happiness and joy even while still remembering and honoring those we love.
