MASARYKTOWN — Though only recently turned 17, Justin White had plenty of riding experience with horses. But not bicycles.

However, his mother was wary of her son… Continue

Justin White was a talker.



"98 words a minute" as his sister puts it.



It didn't necessarily matter if you were listening or not, just an occasional nod of the head or an "uh huh" would suffice.



His family members were used to White's chatterbox ways, but even they would have to ask him to zip it from time to… Continue

Why is it always the good ones

The greatest thing that ever happened to me was my father. I wasnt actually his son by blood but if I could have anyone else as my father nothing would top what I had with him no fame fortune or anything offered would ever make me want anything more than him. I was standing outside my house on a Tuesday I had just got off of work when I got a phone call from my mother saying we had no choice but to take my father off of life support or watch him suffer for the next month or so of his life. i… Continue

My 'little sister' Abby just passed away at 41 yrs old...

I am truly without feeling right now. It is the most confusing , frightening, sad, angry and depressed feelings all rolled into one. On top of it, I have issues with being bi-polar, ADD, PTSD. I just lost my sister to the insidious illness of anorexia and here I sit..unable to move. I am glad this site is here.

Seven ways to listen better

Someone facing a difficult experience needs an outlet to voice their concerns and fears. It is through conversations, sharing our stories over and over again, that we finally make sense of what is happening in our lives. One of the greatest gifts you can give someone facing a tough time is a willingness to listen. And yet listening doesn't come easy to us. Listening is a skill, just like speaking and writing, and the more you practice, the more proficient you become. Here are seven…

Once in a Lifetime

You only meet someone like my mom once in a lifetime. It was an honor to be called one of her daughters. She devoted her life to God, her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a friend, prayer partner, and confidant to so many people. She lived her life as an inspiration to everyone around her. She was amazing to watch as she was so very vibrant and inspiring; she cherished everyday God had given her. Mom always reminded us that this life is only for a short time, and that we… Continue

Loss of a Mother

My Mom passed away on Sunday, December 7, 2008. My 43rd birthday was the day after this event, and also the last time I was to ever see her again. My Dad passed away when I was an infant and Mom rasied the four of us completely on her own. She's the only parent I've ever known. I live away from my family, alone, having just gotten divorced this year - and I'm just not sure how I can cope with Mom's death, especially at Christmas, which was her favorite holiday & time of the year. I have… Continue

Grieving loss during the holidays

Holidays should be joyful, but they are often sad for individuals grieving a loss or going through a difficult experience. Five simple things can bring cheer to those facing tough times:

  1. Write a personal note to let them know you are thinking of them and their loved one.
  2. Invite them out to lunch and offer to provide transportation.
  3. Deliver a gift bag or tin with home-baked or store-bought cookies, muffins or a quick bread.
  4. Include them in…

What to say to a grieving spouse

A colleague, Joan Price, recently lost her beloved husband, Robert. Many folks she encountered found it hard to say the right thing and too often she was asked, “How are you doing?" Joan wondered, “What was I supposed to answer? The truth was ‘Horrible, of course!’ but I restrained myself."



I asked Joan to share what she wished folks had said so we could learn how to better communicate with a grieving spouse. Joan reminded me that we each grieve differently and statements…

Remembering my sister

I spent the last 10 years caring for my sweet dear sister Abby. She has been gone a year now and I can't believe how much I miss her. She passed 9/4/07 had a birthday 10/4 and then with the holidays it magnifies the loss. We went through so much together and now there is a big empty hole in that part of my heart. She suffered terribly with mental illness and I take comfort in knowing she is in the arms of the Lord. I created her site so I could really go to it and feel her presence. I created a… Continue

The gift of listening

It happens all the time. Something has us stressed, upset, or worried and we search for comfort. But what we really need is someone to listen; someone to give us their full attention as we share our fears and concerns. We’re not looking for advice, we’re looking for understanding. And we each have the power to give this all important gift – our time and attention.



It’s hard to ask for support but we can’t expect our friends and loved ones to be mind readers and intuitively…

Youth Suicide - How You Can Help the Survivors

Q. What can you say or do when there’s a suicide in someone’s family? My cousin’s 21-year-old son killed himself, and she and her husband are inconsolable. What can I possibly say to them in such a devastating situation? I feel powerless to help them.



A. Suicide is the third leading cause of death in the 15-24 age group in this country with only injuries and homicides claiming more lives, and suicide on college campuses is more common than most people…
