Grief Resources

Loss is inevitable in life. And it hurts. Yet our western culture doesn’t know how to handle grief, much less support someone in it.

The grief journey is a shockingly disorienting experience for anyone, especially those experiencing it for the first time.

If you or someone you know is mourning a loved one, my heart goes out to you.

I lost my 19-year-old son James to suicide in November 2017, 18 months ago as I am writing this. I’ve accumulated a few grief resources that I found very useful.

I’d like to share them with you, in hopes that they’ll be helpful to someone you know who is grieving, or perhaps to you.
