I know is in His time. As a Christian I didn’t think i needed a workshop that help with my grieve. As time passed i realized that I really needed help. When I found the We Grieve The Walking With Faith it helped me to understand a lot of doubts and recognize that I was not the only one who was suffering from this sad situation. I’m so grateful to Karl and the group. Because it was helpful, I already signed up for the next workshop. God Bless you all.
This workshop helped me to realize and understand that I’m not alone in the grief process. I learned that grief is personal but the pain is not unique, and that it is important to take care of yourself and to have faith in your God.
I have recently finished the 4 week “Faith Through Grief” workshop with Karl. I am a recent widow losing my husband on Nov. 3, 2022 by an unknown brain aneurysm. I was desperate to find help, in addition to the grief therapist I see and Grief Share that I participate in, another format to connect with grieving people. This workshop provided that. I met and connected with people from all over the country that were experiencing the loss of a loved one. Karl does a wonderful job of teaching strategies to help with grief but also giving the participants a time to react and share. I recently signed up for his next workshop in April. I am looking forward to participating again to learn more information on grief and how to navigate this life-changing , painful time in my life.
Karl, you provide excellent resources and do an excellent job in using them in your classes. I found the Circles of Influence particularly useful. The Domains of Resilience was also extremely helpful, and I used the Object of Control. All the class discussions were beneficial in helping me appreciate the problems that others face and relate the similarity of our experiences so that I do not feel as alone as I had before taking your class.

This workshop on walking with faith through grief and loss has been so helpful. The last one tonight was about resilience, which is what I need to rebuild. Karl is kind, gentle, and compassionate. He gave us understanding of the grief process and the tools to go forward at our own pace. It was my birthday on the 24th and missing my husband terribly. The loving family God gave me was a blessing. Counting my blessings. I appreciate the scripture verses and advice to turn over the things we can’t control to God. He gave us hope that we will be able to survive this awful pain. Thank you, Karl for comforting us with the comfort you have been given.

Losing a child was not something I could ever imagine happening. The overwhelming parts of grief started taking over my life when our son unexpectedly died. I couldn’t stop replaying the days over and over again in my head. I was so exhausted and couldn’t sleep. I had brain fog and had trouble remembering simple tasks. I had never experienced anxiety and depression before in my life. Suddenly I had a racing heart, panic attacks and began isolating myself. Engaging with people was too much. Everything seemed like too much. I felt so out of control. Watching the world just move on as my whole world felt like it had ended. I read book after book on grieving, attended candle lighting memorials, trolled blogs on loss looking for any shred of comfort I could find. Nothing was helping. I came across We Grieve and found a safe space to talk and listen. Time was taken to specifically talk to me about my loss and what I was experiencing. I was met with compassion and respect. Karl helped me so much with his ability to help me understand what was happening in my brain and why my body was responding the way that it was, guiding me through what was happening neurologically. Explaining these are normal ways the body responds to stress made me feel less crazy. Better yet talking through these symptoms and learning from the group that I was not alone in my experience. I had opportunities to share without judgment with other people that knew exactly what I was going through because they were going through it too. In the beginning I was respected to only listen because talking sometimes was too much for me that day. Karl taught us there are ways to help manage these feelings and symptoms. This course helped me breakout of some of the beliefs that I can control things. He teaches strategies and helped me gather tools to figure out how to live in a world without my son. Ways to remember my son in ways that don’t make me cry w with sadness. I will forever be grateful to Karl at We Grieve for creating a safe space for people to come together and get support in such a kind, respectful and gentle way. This group meets and supports you where your are in this journey.
I have participated in two workshops since losing my husband. Karl creates a safe space to discuss one’s loss. He is understanding and compassionate. He provides practical tools on the way forward. Being in the workshops with others who are grieving helps you realize you are not alone in this journey. Karl’s guidance and online resources have been a gift.
I found the We Grieve workshop immensely helpful. Not only by getting to know the other participants and feeling a connection to them, but Karl led the group with compassion and gave us so many tools to work with over the 4 session workshop. It was wonderful being able to share your feelings about what you are going through with others that are going through the same thing. I felt very comfortable opening up with the group because they all “get it”, unlike talking to friends who have not experienced such a loss.

Karl and the entire group were extremely supportive and knowledgeable about working through the grief process. It was very healing to be able to share with others on a topic that is very personal and painful. Karl is an excellent leader; he is kind and caring, and offers a great deal of tools to help with the healing process.
Karl, thank you so much for taking the time to host this 4 week session on the loss of a spouse. You have a very calming voice ! The information packets were very helpful and everything you talked about related to me. Over the last 2-1/2 years since Mike’s passing, no one has ever broken it down like this. I have tried three different therapists and none touches on these topics. You are the first one who asked to see a picture of my husband. I hope one day that I will have the strength to become a facilitator like you. Wishing you a peaceful thanksgiving.
The Walking with Faith workshop was helpful. The 5 batteries exercise insightful and a way to develope healthier ways back into my life. It helped connecting with others going through similar feelings & behaviors. Thank you Karl!
