I know I’ve been talking about this for a while now and I am SO excited to let you know that I’m officially launching the ministry website TOMORROW!
Words are inadequate to express my deepest, heartfelt appreciation to everyone who has encouraged me in this endeavor, strategized with me, prayed for and with me, and helped me with the mechanics of making this a reality. But, first and foremost, I want to give glory to God for taking me by the hand and leading me step by step over the past months.
While I’ve spent much of my life “waiting on God,” this was a journey where I felt like I could barely keep up with where He was going! So, there is no doubt in my mind that this is His ministry, and I’m merely the vessel He’s using to spread the message. Be a Blessing to Your Grieving Friend!

What’s the difference between this blog and the ministry website? For those of you who have been following It’s Beyond Me, you probably recognize that it’s very much my personal journey through the grief of losing my husband. Sharing the heartache along with the blessings I’ve seen – and hopefully helping others see that God can and does walk beside us through our valleys.
The ministry website will feature weekly blog posts designed to give you some “behind the scenes” perspective and practical advice to help you step out in faith and help a friend who is hurting. It is much more focused on education and enlightenment. And the posts will even be a little shorter!
I’d love for you to visit the site and spend a little time roaming around it. I think you’ll get a sense of what this ministry is all about. You can sign up to receive the weekly blog posts directly to your email – just look for the green SIGN UP button on the homepage.
I will also post these new articles on my personal FaceBook page AND the new ministry FaceBook page – Be a Blessing to Your Grieving Friend.
My prayer going forward is that God would continue to teach me deep truths through THIS blog that I can pass along to each of you. And that He would work in new ways on the ministry site to equip His people to be the hands and feet of Jesus to a world that is longing for compassion.
I’m grateful for each and every one of you!
I have not stopped giving thanks for you,
remembering you in my prayers.
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father,
may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation,
so that you may know him better.
