How To Cope With Grief and Loss

UPDATE: Just to let you our valued EMB readers know, everything went well with regards to the home going service and burial of my dear departed sister. My family and I continue to remain strong as we continue to trust and hope in the Almighty God. As promised, today May 26th 2014 should have been the day that I resume blogging. However, due to a personal illness that I am now dealing with and one that would require a minor surgical procedure, this blog’s publication will resume at a later date than planned.

Yvonne is a positive thinker, a catalyst for change, and a conduit through which holistic healing takes place and destiny is fulfilled. Her ministry through her blog, Empowerment Moments, came at a very low point in her life and was born out of much adversity, persecution, physical abuses, and rejection to the point of her being suicidal. She was left feeling defeated and shrunk back by fear. But through some miraculous means, God has given her pain purpose and a unique voice through which He speaks to touch the untouchable, to reach the unreachable and to empower, inspire, motivate, encourage and uplift the hurting and spiritually wounded to bring about healing and wholeness - mind, body, soul and spirit, one person at a time.

  1. Hi Minister Yvonne! my continued condolences to you and your family. I want to encourage you to be strong in the Lord, for in such a time as this the Lord promised never to leave us nor forsake us. The Lord is your strength. He said that in your weakness He will be your strength. I can share the empathy as I know how it feels. I lost my mother years ago a sometimes it seems like yesterday. Jehovah is your strength. Continue to look to the hills from whence cometh your help. I am praying for you and your family daily. Love you.
