Response to loss
Sadness and sorrow are universal while our path to healing is individual. It bears repeating that the passion of a grieving parent has seemingly no boundaries or limits. You might ask yourself, where does my guest on Real Grief - Real Healing, Dawn Collins, find the energy to create the meaningful legacy of her son, 1st Lieutenant Richard Collins, III? In episode 42, appropriately titled, “The World is Learning His Name” Momma Bear Dawn shares with us that she learned determination and “knowing the essence of who you are” are key factors guiding her healing journey.Being mindful of his promising military career ahead of him, Richard was waiting on an Uber for a ride home after celebrating his commission as Lieutenant into the Army on May 18, 2017. Dawn explains that a monster stole her son's life for refusing to step aside at a bus stop on the University of Maryland campus. Like his grandfather, Richard was murdered because of the color of his skin and the hate from another. I know you are thinking what I am writing now…This Has to Stop. Lt. Richard Collins, III was the best and the brightest, expecting to serve the United States of America for the benefit of all citizens. The military is in his lineage as his father and grandfather each served America – not Black or white America. They are patriots through and through. Dawn and her family know that while there are more good people than those filled with hate, more hate crimes will occur. Therefore, they worked quickly and diligently to change the hate crime law in Maryland, tightening loopholes for the next unsuspecting family in a similar situation as theirs. You see, the monster who murdered Richard was convicted of murder but not of a hate crime. Two notable achievements, in honor of Lt. Richard Collins, III included a $1 Million scholarship in his name from the state of Maryland for ROTC cadets attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) in Maryland.And the BSU - UMD Social Justice Alliance formed because of Momma Bear Dawn and her persistence in bringing together the Bowie State and University of Maryland presidents to provide educational content for all of their students strives to transform our nation using evidence-based social justice models.Dawn and I belong to the club no one wants to join. As mothers of deceased children, specifically mothers of children violently murdered due to hate…hate of a race or hate of a religion, hate is hate…we are focused on finding the good. We are determined to bring something good from our children's tragic murders. You can help Dawn and the Lt. Richard Collins, III Foundation as they are making positive impacts in the lives of young ROTC members by offering scholarships for assistance with college costs. The Lt. Collins Scholars program is an ongoing effort to mentor cadets who honor the life and legacy of Lt. Richard Collins III through a demonstrated commitment to service, strong leadership skills, and good character rooted in integrity and determination.

How long was it from the time you heard Jesus died, until you knew that He rose again? What did you feel in that interim? Grief? Loss? Defeat? And what did it mean when you knew that He did rise again? “Brother Stephen” has worked with Operation Mobilization for many years sharing the gospel among Muslims, including nomadic peoples in the Middle East. He has told the story of Jesus to people who had never heard it before! Listen for the story of how one woman responded to Jesus' death. Brother Stephen will share how God called him to missions, and advise those feeling a call to missionary service today. He challenges us to see Muslims not as an enemy to be defeated, but as a prize to be won for Christ. He'll also share about Muslims making the decision to follow Christ and the price they often pay for that decision. How can Christians living in free nations reach out to Muslims they know or work with? How can we pray for gospel work among Muslims? Never miss an episode of VOM Radio! Subscribe to the podcast.

The Sisters discuss how important it is to tell your kids the truth. We need to use emotional words when we speak to our kids so that they are prepared when the family experiences a grieving event. It's okay to give your kids an age appropriate version of what happened. We cannot protect our children from grief, but we can equip them with the correct way to mend their broken hearts. https://www.healingstartswiththeheart.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/The-Grievers-Guide-2020-1-1.pdf https://www.facebook.com/groups/hope.heal.recover

This week we are reading IN WAVES, by AJ Dungo. An equally informative and heartbreaking sober work of a young man's love, along with a history lesson. This book is NOT just about the history of surfing, tracing the tales of Duke Kahanamoku and Thomas Blake,...it's also a heartfelt recollection of young love and loss, as the author recounts his time with his girlfriend Kristen, who succumbed to cancer. A beautifully heavy book that caught me off guard a couple of years ago, and continues to sit with you on every re-reading.
On today's show, we are joined by author and survivor, Nelson Simon. Nelson joins us to discuss his new book, “Soul of the Hurricane: The Perfect Storm and an Accidental Sailor”. In 1991, Nelson and the rest of the crew of the Anna Kristina were caught in what became famously known as “The Perfect Storm”. Nelson recalls for us the trauma of this near-death experience, as well as his path to recalibrating himself after the incident. Nelson's story is absolutely incredible, and we could have talked with him for hours. We highly recommend you read his book and attend some of the release events he has coming up if you are in the NYC area.To register for the Launch Party on Oct. 26th, listeners can use this link.To register for the event with Greenlight Bookstore on Oct. 28th, or order a signed copy of the book, listeners can use this link.Listeners outside of the U.S. can get free shipping anywhere in the world and a 10% discount through the Book Depository.

Today's guest, Hans, says he 'prides himself on being a father first and foremost, cherishing every moment of his fatherhood journey.' Before bed each night, his children beg for their dad to make up another silly story to tell them. The stories are always fun and fantastical, including things like dragons, race cars and unicorns. His youngest daughter, Aviva, was not yet one year old and was just starting to appreciate his dad's stories. Aviva was a joyous child who had an infectious smile. She loved to laugh and had a voracious appetite. Aviva also mysterious episodes of illness, however, that would cause her to be hospitalized. Numerous tests could not uncover a diagnosis. Tragically, last November 18th, a 6th and final episode took her life. Hans made a promise to his little girl that night. He promised that he would make her proud. At the time, he didn't know what that would be. What he did know, however, is that he wanted other children to laugh and smile like his sweet Aviva did. This is when he came back to those beautiful, fun bedtime stories that would leave his children begging for more. Now, in his grief, Hans, could have let go of the silly stories, but he did not want Baby Aviva to be remembered in a sad way. He wanted her to be joyful, laughing and playing. An idea came to him then, to create a new character for his stories, one that is carefree, brave and fun - Baby Aviva Orangutan Diva. He then worked with an illustrator and editor to create a beautiful book with a beautiful story that children everywhere will absolutely love. Learn even more about Hans, his book and little Aviva by going to his website, hanskullberg.com. You can get your copy by searching on Amazon or by clicking on this link.
Have you ever felt that someone touched your soul? And, as a result of your meeting, left it just a little fuller? That's exactly how I felt after talking with Laura Pritchett. She is a writer, an award-winning author, a lover of all things nature and an advocate for it's survival. We talk about how the core themes in her work are stories of the precarity of life. Laura shares her own precarious story and how this prompted her writing, "Making Friends with Death: A Field Guide to your Impeding Last Breath". This conversation came just at the right time for me. Connecting with the natural world has become a big part of my healing: physically, emotionally and spiritually. Laura Pritchett is a mere mortal who will someday die—and she's doing a little better with that fact now! She's also the author of nine books. She began her writing journey with the short story collection Hell's Bottom, Colorado, which won the PEN USA Award for Fiction and the Milkweed National Fiction Prize. This was followed by the novels Sky Bridge, Stars Go Blue, Red Lightning, and The Blue Hour. Her novels have received starred reviews from Booklist, Publisher's Weekly, and School Library Journal, and The Blue Hour was listed as one of the “Top 5 books that will make you think about what it is to be human” by PBS and made the Booklist Editor's Choice for 2017. She also has two nonfiction books: Great Colorado Bear Stories and Making Friends with Death: A Field Guide to Your Impending Last Breath. She's also involved with environmental issues, and is the editor of three anthologies about conservation: Pulse of the River, Home Land, and Going Green: True Tales from Gleaners, Scavengers, and Dumpster Divers. Her essays and short stories have appeared in The Sun, The New York Times, Salon, High Country News, The Millions, Pinch, The Normal School, Publisher's Weekly, Brain, Child, and many others. She directs the MFA in Nature Writing at Western Colorado University

The cause of our sorrow is our false expectations born of misunderstanding one thing to be something else. Identifying with the individual ego, we grieve for the natural phenomenon of death, and lose sight of our Dharma. Knowledge of what Dharma is lifts us out of sorrow, and here Krishna, the Jagad-Guru, establishes Dharma by taking Arjuna as His disciple.

Spirit Vessels with Jessica Wertz “Death is not easy to talk about. Grief is not comfortable to feel.” “We believe in the courage of the human spirit and the depth that love can weave together in times of grief.” “We recognize the power of ceremony for both its ability to create and hold a safe space for your emotions and assist in the process of self-healing.” -- Jessica Wertz Episode Summary: Have you ever wondered why it is so hard to talk about, much less deal with, death in our society? Have you struggled with your emotions around the death of a loved one? Have you scrambled to find ceremony and meaning when facing death? In this episode, we talk with Jessica Wertz, a ceramics artist and founder of “Spirit Vessel” where she creates personalized ceremonies to honor the lives of loved ones, with meaningful ritual and handcrafted, uniquely designed urns. Listen in to hear Jessica Wertz invite you to redefine your relationship with loss through guided, personalized ceremony. Topics We Discuss: How Jessica Wertz' journey from artistry and creativity, through the forests of Oregon, lead her to Spirit Vessels so early in her life. Using an intentional, uniquely created Spirit Vessel urn to beautify and signify a loved one's life. How to bypass the tabu and stigma around death in our culture, and rise above the difficulty of talking about death. How to approach a better way of living through the lens of death; growing through the wisdom of death. Jessica's passion for reintroducing the long lost art of ceremony into the common experience of losing a loved one. Rekindling the lost ancient technology of ceremony, helping to create a sacred time to give reverence, honor and celebrate; to center the community around the spirit of a loved one. Spirit Vessel will help continue the markers of life: birth, baptism/bris, graduation, marriage, anniversaries – with emotional and spiritual living memorials or after death memorial services. How you can honor your loved ones in this world and into the next. How we are socially wired to connect in community!

October has been designated as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. One in four families will lose a baby during pregnancy, delivery, or infancy. Bryan and Brandy Davis became one of those families in January of 2018. Their sweet Hattie Grace was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 while in the womb, and the Davises had ten precious hours with her before she went to be with Jesus. Though it was brief, Hattie's life had meaning and purpose and continues to have an impact today. In the first half of our conversation, Bryan and Brandy share Hattie's story, talk about grieving as a couple, and discuss how God has worked in their lives since that time. Be sure and come back next week to hear some practical advice from the Davises about life after the loss of a baby.

God's timing is never rushed by our impatience in this Dunya, for He is always in control of all plans and we are in control of the steps we take toward His plans.One quote that always lingers in my mind is:If your heart became closer to Allah as a result of something that has happened to you, it was the biggest blessing.You know, sometimes in moments of hardship we tend to feel as if God has forgotten us, but it's in these moments when we are truly reminded of Allah's mercy and His love for every one of His creations.Today's special guest, Melanie Elturk, CEO of Haute Hijab, said something that resonated deep within my heart, she said, just because you're far from Allah, does not mean that Allah is far from you.How often do we feel distant from God, reluctant to make dua, and the desire to be in the driver's seat of our life even in moments where we feel like we are being tested beyond belief?And so, I had the honor to sit down with Melanie to discuss how to better understand the concept of trusting God - like really trusting God.She is someone who hasn't had a shortage of hardships herself, from dealing with grief, loss and recently opening up about going through a divorce, I wanted to gain a better insight into how one can truly let go, and let God.In this episode we discuss why we are so keen on carrying the deep and emotional pain we have gone through rather than unpacking it once and for all, we talk about the stories our wounds carry and how therapy has been both eye and heart opening for the both of us. You know in life, we go through multiple rebirths, and more often than not our rebirth happens when we hit rock bottom and not because there is nowhere to go, but because we don't want to feel this way again.So how does one prepare for radical change? How do we learn to accept not only God's plans but also God's pace?Enjoy and follow the pod on Instagram:@unsweetenedandunfilteredFollow Melanie Elturk/Haute Hijab on Instagram:@hautehijabCheck out Haute Hijab's site:Shop Here
