Jeanell never knew what grief was. She, like many, had heard of the five stages of grief, but never really had to walk through them. She lost her mother from a long illness in 2014, but her family was almost relieved that her mom was finally out of pain and with Jesus. Grief never invaded her life. She was of course sad about the loss, but so happy that her mom got what she wanted…to finally be in heaven dancing with Jesus.
When Jeanell unexpectedly lost her husband August 29, 2020….grief reared its ugly head and demanded attention. Losing him at 58 and only 3 years into their marriage, was never even a thought or fear..but God had different plans.
Navigating grief as a Christian has its own challenges. Jeanell knew that she would meet her husband again one day in heaven, but how to reconcile that with the pain of the loss became extremely confusing. How does one grieve with faith in Jesus? You feel that peace that passes all understanding, but you also feel sadness and guilt for not grieving the way others feel you should grieve.
Walking in healing and showing others that it is possible is now her mindset and mission for life!
Jeanell can’t wait to help show you that you can heal from trauma and grief, and find joy and freedom through Christ and this program.
