I have been dating someone for a year and I sometimes struggle with how to explain what I am experiencing with grief. He tries really hard to understand but doesn't have any context. Is there a book…Continue

Feel free to bring your camera to capture some of the natural beauty we will experience there. I’ll meet you near the doors of the Hardin Visitor Center wearing my red Hope Matters t-shirt (what else?)A note on cost: I have eight free passes so RSVP quick if you want one!…See More
"Tamara....it's hard and it won't be the same. I think the new man in our lives can feel threatened by our love for our dead husband and maybe he doesn't understand that there is no point in being threatened because he's not…"

Would you like to add a statement about you to your profile page? For example, the URL of a blog? This answer will be VISIBLE on your profile page.
I was widowed at the beginning of 2010. I combined the experience from my 20 year career, what I learned (and still learn) from grief and my creativity to become a certified creative grief coach. My blog can be found at http://tamarabeachum.com/blog/
