“…the End Comes” Series by Dean Miller

“Why did I write these books? Before I experienced “the end,” I never preached a sermon about widowhood and never taught classes about it, either (despite the fact it’s a biblical subject and virtually all churches have members living this reality). I repented. I had no idea what these secret sufferers were going through. I thought I did, but I didn’t. How can we minister effectively to people in a life circumstance we know nothing about? I hope it prompts discussion in families, churches and communities.”

Books can be purchased on Amazon (Paperback and Kindle Versions Available)

When the End ComesBefore the End ComesAfter the End Comes

A ministry of compassion under the oversight of the shepherds of the LaVergne Church of Christ in LaVergne, TN.

Ignorance and inexperience with grief, especially that which accompanies the loss of a mate, makes it difficult (if not impossible) to minister effectively to those trying to live after loss. These workshops raise awareness about the impact of loss. Hopefully, with informed insight people will be better prepared for the experience and more capable servants of those left behind.  

A million or more people in the United States every year experience the loss of their spouse.The number of citizens who are widows or widowers is in the neighborhood of 20 million. Maybewe need to address this issue, don’t you think?

The subject may not be in our comfort zone but we need to think about it, study about it, and talk about it.  Why?  The co-authors of Getting to the Other Side of Grief (Overcoming the Loss of a Spouse) observe, “…those who have never been widowed barely have a clue to what the process is really like.”  Widowhood Workshop is a ministry attempting to raise awareness about this life experience.

It was birthed in the grief journey of Dean Miller, a minister in the Lord’s church who lost his wife in 2013.  It is a flexible workshop that can be tailored to a church or organization’s schedule and purposes for hosting it.

This workshop will be a blessing to:

• Widows and Widowers
• Married Couples
• Those who want to minister to Widows & Widowers

Lessons Include:

Widowhood: From the Divine Perspective
Widowhood: From the Personal Perspective
