TO HEAVEN AND BACK

MAY 3, 2018

Landon and I had the honor of being featured in the May Edition of Inspiration Ministries magazine along with video which can be found on their website. Such an amazing group of people to work with! We love their hearts and passion to spreading the gospel. I cherish the new friendships that we formed while working with them. Their mission is to impact people for Christ worldwide through media.

I want to personally thank Sybil Bell, Mark and Brad Palmer for allowing us to share pictures of Olen and Neil. It was important for them to be included since Landon saw them when he went to heaven. We know you’ve had your own challenges with your grief journey and hope that it brings you comfort knowing they are spending eternity in heaven. We love you and will always have a special blond with you!!

I also want to thank my GriefShare team: Pastor Ed Briggs and Facilitators – Gary and Brenda Knight, Deborah Clark, Susan Furr, Debbie Aten and Elizabeth Johnson, and all the participants for welcoming Inspiration Ministries to be with us at GriefShare. This ministry is near and dear to my heart.

This video will be shared in US and internationally: Canada, United Kingdom, Caribbean and Australia….

We don’t know who will see it that is suffering. But God does.

Our prayer is that it will help someone who is struggling on their grief journey or who is questioning their relationship with God.

Psalm 34:18 NIV – The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Episode 19 Tragedy Evolves into Healing Journey and Ministry

July 25, 2019

Life changed in an instant for Julie Kemp and her son Landon Whitley on October 19, 1997. An ambulance t-boned their car as they were driving home from church. Julie awakes in a hospital bed to learn that her husband Andy died on the way to the hospital, and to hear that her only child would likely not survive.

Julie and Landon openly share their grief journey, and the miracle of Landon’s recovery, Landon’s 3 visits to heaven, and a miracle of forgiveness!

Julie is now a GriefShare Facilitator and has written 3 beautiful books (links below). Faith Has Its Reasons is a book about her experience that has inspired thousands of people. She and Landon have also written a beautiful children’s book, Highway to Heaven, (available in Spanish as well) to encourage children who have lost a loved one.

I was beyond inspired to hear their testimony and feel honored to share this with you! They have appeared on numerous platforms including the Dr. Oz show, 700 Club, Inspiration Ministries, and many more. Their story has been heard around the world.

“For we live by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7 NIV

A few of Julie and Landon’s take-aways that I loved:

“If you are on a grief journey, know that you WILL find joy again. The love you feel for that person will never go away, but the hole in your heart will eventually be filled with happy memories and gratitude for the time you shared together.” Julie Kemp

“No matter what your fears, no matter what you doubts, no matter what your feelings are, always know that there is a God. There are angels, there is a heaven. Its all waiting for you. Always keep your faith alive and know that Jesus is real.” Landon Whitley

Episode 28: Coping with Grief During the Holidays – with Julie Kemp Type a message

November 7, 2019

Julie Kemp has 11 years of experience as a Grief Facilitator. Additionally, Julie has personally experienced loss at the holidays, and she finds peace in helping others that are on a grief journey.

Julie lost her husband suddenly in a car accident in October of 1997. While her son Landon (age 8) miraculously survived, he had a long road to recovery. She spent Thanksgiving in the hospital, and got to take her son home the week before Christmas. She shares openly what she experienced that first year, what helped her cope, and offers practical tips for those facing loss this holiday. She also shares warning signs for trouble and how to intervene when help is needed.

Julie’s recommendations for Thanksgiving: Count your blessings! Be thankful. Create a gratitude list A-Z, anything that comes to mind. Be thankful as you remember the many special ways your life was touched by your loved one. You hurt so much because you loved so much.

Julie’s top 10 Holiday Survival Tips:

Allow yourself to break away from old traditions, or start new traditions, at least for the first year. Even subtle changes can help you cope. Make a plan.

Give yourself permission to cry. Don’t apologize for your feelings or for your tears. Grief is a process, and it is different for everyone.

If you are going to a social function and are unsure you can handle it, take a close friend who can speak for you if the words become too difficult. Make sure you have an exit if needed.
Light a candle to remember your loved one. You can create a special area to display photos to honor times together.

Don’t expect too much of yourself. If you need to get alone, or leave early from an event, allow yourself that opportunity. Set healthy boundaries for yourself.

If you don’t feel like listening to Christmas music or sending cards, then don’t! There will be a time when you feel like doing it again, but you can skip a year or two until you feel ready.
Consider giving a gift in memory of your loved on to your favorite charity, needy family, or to an organization your loved one supported or belonged.

Finding time to reflect and journal may be beneficial to you and help you deal with your emotions.

Reading the Bible, particularly Psalms, can be beneficial. Finding a good devotional book and setting aside a daily quiet time for prayer and meditation will be advantageous for your grief journey.

ULTIMATE TIP: Skip the elf, the reindeer, and the tree, and remember the real meaning of Christmas and celebrate Jesus’ birthday, and remember that because of his sacrifice that we will be united again for eternity.

“Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort. He comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any kind of affliction, through the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
