"A Mother Like Me"
Comfort, Hope and Encouragement for Grieving Moms
The loss of a child marks the beginning of a journey through grief that will lead to healing and peace or to crippling pain, sorrow, doubts, perplexities and despair.
This website is created for moms who have suffered the loss of a child. The benefit and convenience of online social networking makes it possible for us to be connected, as a community of moms, even if we can't be together face-to-face or companion with one another side-by-side. You can also find me on Facebook @ firstname.lastname@example.org. I have also included blogs from my "Iron-Spirited Women's Fellowship" to encourage moms who have and are grieving to lean into and rely on God to give us His healing peace, while we seek to possess a "marathon mindset of faith to finish well," and to not pull away from Him, but draw closer to Him in our time(s) of sorrow and pain.
We are tied together and connected by the heartstrings of our loss, grief, and a desire to experience a measure of God's love, comfort, hope, encouragement and His healing peace.
After retiring from full-time grief support leadership, as the Co-Founding Director of "Mothers Like Me Comfort Ministry" for grieving moms in 2013, my heart is settled on continuing my ministry of faith, hope and love to grieving moms all over the Nation.
My mother's heart hurts to think of the large number of grieving moms who live with the intense, unthinkable loss of a child/children everyday, especially those who try to make it through their journey of grief alone. I have personally experienced, in the company of hundreds of grieving moms through the years, that the journey of grief is better made in the company of others who are acquainted with grief, especially other "moms like us."
I am pleased that you have visited my website. You can also join my Facebook page where many other moms are connected, encouraged at https://www.facebook.com/AMotherLikeMe
