Grief Fellowship Ministries is our personal ministry in reaching out to others whose paths in life have led them down the road of grief. We are here to help. We are  people that have been and are still traveling the same road as many, many others – the journey through grief.

What is Grief?

Grief Is A Merciless Adversary  – It has no feelings but pain.  It shows no emotion but heartache.  It attacks the old, the young, the weak and the strong.  It descends upon the rich, the poor, the good and the bad.  It shows no favoritism.  It gives no warning.  Grief arrives in many forms.  It may be the death of a loved one, the betrayal of a trust, the destruction of a relationship or the loss of a lifestyle.  The purpose of grief is obvious.  It is determined to destroy whatever is left of our once peaceful and productive lives.  Its goal is to enslave and control us.  It wants to dictate our actions, our thoughts and our feelings.  We must not let grief win.  First we must heal from the wounds. Healing enables us to survive.  Then we must find a way to overcome the scars.  Overcoming allows us to move forward.  However, we can’t stop there.  We have to become victorious.  Victory empowers us to take that which was intent on our destruction and turn it into our destiny.  We must exchange our tragedy for a stairway that will reach to a higher level than we could ever have imagined before.  We must turn grief into victory
