You are invited to join us at our "Living With Loss While Others Are Celebrating" Workshop (It's FREE!) on Saturday, November 10, 2012 from 10:00 am to 12:00 Noon at Timberline Church, Room #201/202.
This will be a time to come together with those new or further along in their personal journey through grief to receive helpful hints about how to prepare our hearts and homes for the Christmas Season, while living with the loss of our child and giving ourselves permission to grieve, while not missing the beauty and blessings of the Season.
Our special guest speaker will be Jacque Valdez, a professional counselor who specializes in loss, abuse and bereavement, and who also is the Founding Director of "Healing Prayer Ministry" here in Fort Collins.
Angie Green, Director of MLM, will begin our workshop with her insights and experiences of how she personally "made it through" the Christmas Season following the sudden cardiac death of her youngest son, Kevin, in January 2002. She will facilitate a group discussion that will help grieving moms articulate their concerns about the upcoming "Holy-days," and for those further along in their journey to share how they "made it through" their first Christmas Season following the loss of their own child - what helped, what hurt.
We all know that after the loss of a child everything, including us, is different. This Workshop is being hosted in response to requests by several of our precious moms facing their first Christmas Season without their beloved child and
who have asked us in various ways, "What am I going to do about the holidays this year?"
Join us, as we approach the Christmas Season with HOPE! Jacque will help us prepare our heart, soul and mind to make room for our Lord Jesus Christ in the midst of our sorrow.
Reserve your spot by emailing Angie at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling her at 970-797-2159 - space is limited, so
consider making your reservations soon - no later than Monday, November 5th please!
