What is GriefShare?

At GriefShare you’ll receive valuable guidance and tips, leading you to relief, comfort, and peace of mind.

The three main components of GriefShare: a video seminar, a personal workbook, and the support group experience.

A support group to help you move through the grief process

A GriefShare support group is a safe, welcoming place where people understand the difficult emotions of grief. Through this 13-week group, you’ll discover what to expect in the days ahead and what’s “normal” in grief. Since there are no neat, orderly stages of grief, you’ll learn helpful ways of coping with grief, in all its unpredictability—and gain solid support each step of the way.

How GriefShare helps you

Navigating loss and grief through a support group

A television, cell phone, and laptop are paused on different sections from the GriefShare weekly videos. GriefShare cohosts Dave and Nancy Guthrie are featured onscreen.

Videos that encourage

Each weekly GriefShare group begins with a 30-minute video featuring respected experts on grief-related topics and helpful stories from people who have experienced loss. Their insights will help you manage your emotions, gain clarity, and find answers to your questions as you walk through the grief process.

Supportive discussions

After the video, you and the other group members will spend time discussing what was presented in the video and what is going on in your lives. Talking with other people who understand what you’re experiencing brings great comfort, normalizes the grief experience, and offers a supportive environment to work through your grief.

Common questions


What happens during a typical group meeting?


Each week you’ll view a 30-minute video on a grief-related topic, featuring valuable insights from counselors, pastors, and others who’ve lost a loved one. Then your group will discuss the video and how it applies to your lives. You’ll also receive a book with helpful tips and exercises for personal support throughout the week.


How does GriefShare compare with other grief support options?


While other grief support sites may offer phone or video consultations with a professional, we have found a group support setting to be crucial for healing. One-on-one counsel is certainly helpful, but a more complete healing is found in the context of having people walk alongside you on the grief journey.


How much does it cost to attend?


For most groups the cost ranges from free to around $20 to cover the cost of your participant guide. Contact the church that is hosting a group near you (or online) to find out.


Is GriefShare for people with a specific type of loss?


GriefShare is for everyone who is grieving the death of a loved one—whether you’ve experienced the loss of a spouse, parent, child (infant, young child, teen, adult, unborn), friend, sibling, coworker, or other relative.
