Have you ever felt confused and overwhelmed by untamable emotions? The emotions associated with grief, loss, and mourning can be very tangential. One minute you can feel grounded, and the next you can feel knocked down. The ebbs and flows of the process can make one feel unsteady. 
Carrie figured that because she had been exposed to some grief and loss situations during her childhood, this made her well prepared for loss going forward. Well, she was wrong! 
Carrie was also introduced to her faith in God, which became the impetus for her spiritual growth and well-being. As Carrie grew into an adult, she was able to recognize the intersection between grief and God’s grace. She would go in to a helping field, where her grief skills would be further enhanced. Carrie felt sure that her work would help her cope better with experiences of loss moving forward.
Even though Carrie had been exposed to grief and loss as early as the age of eight, she would learn that the loss of a very dear loved one to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) would send her on an unpredictable and turbulent journey of grief and despair. It was this particular death that shined a light on the various holes that punctured her toolbox. As a mental health professional, even she had to enlist in counseling services to further allow herself the vulnerability to move through this particular grief journey.
Carrie would learn that even through pain and suffering, God would render his ultimate grace and healing through her grief journey. She also found deeper answers to these questions:
Did you know that there is no universal template for grief? It is unpredictable.
Did you know that there is no time schedule or limit for the grief process? It takes time.
Did you know that news of a terminal illness such as ALS can cause one to grieve prior to one’s death?
Did you know that God’s grace is sufficient and will help you during the turbulent times?
