7 Things I Wish I Had Known About Grief

It's been almost 2 years since my late wife, Lyndsie passed away after a bravely fought battle with Ovarian Cancer. In the aftermath, I have grieved deeper, been stretched further and learned more than at any other time in my life. 

Because grief is such a personal journey, I found myself surrounded by so many people who were praying and encouraging me, yet I still struggled to find people who could speak specifically and practically to my grief and help guide me through life after loss. As a result, I felt led to step up in this area and encourage other broken people in a way that I longed to be encouraged during my hardest days.

The following posts are a summary of the lessons that I wish I had learned at the very beginning of my grief. I believe that if I had known what I do now, so much more time would have been spent with purpose instead of trying to avoid or numb the pain.

My prayer is that these 7 thoughts will help encourage and guide from darkness to light, from hurting to healing, from lost to found and ultimately to the hope and life we only have in Jesus!
