Loss is by far one of the most painful things we will all experience at some point in our lives. In this course, Dr. Ron Welch asserts that grieving a loss is normal and that there is no right way to grieve. He will help you identify and apply biblical principles that will assist you in moving beyond your grief to a point where you can have hope for the future. Above all else, the primary concern of this course is that you walk away knowing that in every circumstance, God is present, God loves you, and is with you.

Please note: This course covers various types of loss, including the past and ongoing effects of the COVID pandemic, during which time these lectures were filmed.
