Still missing him

We will be going on 9 months on Jan. 8th since I lost my husband to a drugged driver. Sometimes I get so lonesome not  only because most the time I am home alone but I miss his voice and seeing him look over at me, I miss his smile, I miss knowing that he is next to me in the bed. So many other people still have kids at home, I am alone.

I Lost My Precious Mother On Mother's Day: Overwhelmed With Grief And Sorrow

Greetings my fellow Christian brothers and sisters,



I love to speak the truth and I have very serious questions that I think many believers would like to know the answer to. Can you tell me please why does God's word promise so much and yet fulfils so very little to nothing in the lives of many devout Christians, in terms of, for example: long life, health, peace, joy and happiness, etc? Instead, I've seen many atheists who live very healthy,…

Encouraging Thoughts through Song

A word spoken at a right time

How comforting to hear!

We hear these words of consolation

From friends so faithful and so dear

We seek to strengthen one another

And help each on his burden bear...

Depression

 Working in the medical field, I see many things. The depression is on the rise and it's related to stress, post trauma or just a chemical imbalance.. It's sad because when not treated they end up completing suicide. I read about it the local news. We all read about it. It is happening to our friends and our families.

Even Jesus said " It you are sick go to a physician." (Matthew 9:12) Many folks do not do something until its too late. Recognize depression and confide in someone.…

Reflections on Loss

My mother was a wise woman. She always said, “Something good comes out of everything.”

How she could come to that conclusion following my father’s death was puzzling. My mom was only 46 when she was widowed with four children. She raised us and sent us to college during an era when women did not work outside the home, and…

Healing through research.



My name is Veronica Droser and I am from Boston, Massachusetts. In January 2011 my dad passed away very suddenly. He had a heart attack in our basement on the morning I was due to start work at my new job. My family has a motto which is “there are no problems, only solutions,” and therefore I have used my experience with my dad’s death as a…

Holiday Gifts for the Bereaved

What’s not to like about the holidays? The vibrant colors, favorite foods, visits with loved ones, opportunities to reminisce, and wonderful smells of the season. Holidays are full of tradition, packed with memories, and bring so much pleasure. For all these reasons, holidays can be a minefield for the bereaved, leaving them feeling sad, left out, and lonely.  

Is there…
