Help for the Journey

A six-week personal study for your journey from mourning to joy

This is a special part of this website that will guide you to sections of the Bible that are relevant to the emotions, worries, and questions you are dealing with right now. We like to think of the Bible as the “owner’s manual“ for life. It’s a place where you can get real-world answers for real-world problems, including the death of someone special.

We’ve prepared six weeks of material that can make a significant contribution to your healing process.

Make time each week to explore the material in this personal study section. You’ll find it can become a time to grow closer to God and find His help for the things going on in your life (no matter how difficult or painful!). The study is separated into six weeks, with five days of Scripture reflections, questions, and life applications. You might want to highlight or underline verses that are especially meaningful to you. This can help you find those verses again quickly.

Ask for help

A good way to begin your personal study time each day is with a simple prayer asking God to show you what He would like you to see during your study that day (can you imagine Him not answering that prayer?). You don’t have to use fancy words, just talk to God and ask for His help in understanding what you read.
