Wonderfully Made

Jun 19, 2023

Grief is an intimate, personal pain that is often hard to discuss, even years after loss. For some, grief begins before a loved one passes as we watch their health deteriorate before our eyes. Tori Parris, an internationally acclaimed recording artist, shares her personal journey about how grief grew in waves that hit suddenly and hard after her father’s cancer diagnosis. Tori offers words of comfort to those who are preparing for a loss, experiencing loss, or seeking to better understand the pain a loved one is going through. She provides suggestions for coping with grief as well as prayers that guide one spiritually through the grieving process.

Tori and Christie Discuss:

  • Tori's personal story of loss

  • The difference between mourning and grieving

  • How creative practices can aid in the grieving process

  • Why we don't have to grieve the loss of loved ones as the world does but rather with the hope of Jesus

  • How we all will grieve differently
