    Effective Methods for Recovering From Grief

    I'm a grief specialist in my pastoral counseling ministry. I direct the GriefShare DVD-based group recovery program at my church. It's an excellent program with very well-produced video material which I supplement with group discussion and the workbook provided with the program materials. I find myself comparing everything else I find online on grief recovery to this program, so I've established GriefShare in my mind as the gold standard. So, when I saw this video this morning, I felt torn about whether it is useful for comforting the grieving or not...even whether it's creepy or not. I may be too close to the subject, so I welcome your opinions. The video is about 7 minutes long, FYI.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Still welcoming feedback from anyone willing to invest 7 minutes to view this video.

    (does that ever help if someone is grieving?)
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    It's awfully sad video. Don't really like hearing the description of the baby dying. Their baby is with Jesus now. It is good to keep an eye on the eternal perspective. The first few minutes are pretty tough to listen too, just because the very idea of a baby dying is sad.
