Practical Application

Heart of a Lion, Gentleness of a Butterfly

Dealing with Death’s Reality

American culture does not deal well with the reality of death. Most people live in denial of it. We pretend it will never happen to us or to someone we love. When death touches our life in some way, most of us don’t know how to act, what to say or how to grieve.... -Read More
