Grief will eventually touch all our lives, whether in the loss of a loved one or a seemingly unbearable Cross. However, we don’t have to be defined by whatever grief will come our way. In today’s podcast, Michael is joined by author Jeannie Ewing to discuss the ways we can understand the grieving process and ultimately overcome it and move into a state of tenacity, meaning, holiness, and joy. With her background in counseling and the lessons she’s learned from raising two special-needs children, Jeannie offers tremendous insight into the spiritual life and the wisdom of the saints who endured their own time of grief but show us how we too can move from grief to grace.
Jeannie Ewing is an author and speaker who has been featured here on Catholic Exchange, as well as on NPR’s Weekend Edition, at conferences, and on Catholic radio stations. She also maintains her blog and website at lovealonecreates.com.
