Live Q&A with an Expert, Khris Ford:
Questions that Rise in Search for Hope
As human beings, death, loss, and grief are inevitable. Yet, when we begin to grieve, a multitude of misconceptions, questions, and unfortunately avoidance, can arise. During this 2-hr. time for Q&A, grief expert Khris Ford will answer your questions, help you to sort out what is myth and what is true about grief, and most importantly offer you hope. Khris believes passionately in the transformative power of grief; and in grief can be a journey of discovery. While that statement may seem to ignore or diminish the pain and suffering in grief, in truth there is no dismissal. Khris has known the deep deep pain of the death of her teenage son, Stephen, as well as the death of her husband, John, after 47 years of marriage. Both were sudden and unexpected deaths. She has asked the questions. How do I go on living? Why? Where was God when this happened? Will I ever experience life again?
Please join us and bring YOUR questions.
