Healing takes time. When hard situations invade our lives, we need to learn how to face and grieve our losses. This is not a skill we are born with. And well meaning people will often give you bad advice that leads to shame and guilt. The Healer of Souls is waiting to bring you freedom from the pain of grief and loss. We hope that you find encouragement and endurance for your journey here.
