Walking With God Through Grief and Loss
By Joyce Rupp, O.S.M.
You may be tempted to abandon God and prayer as you grieve because the pain is so great. In this reassuring and uplifting CareNote, Rupp inspires us to stay closer to God by trusting and by praying our pain. She reminds us that we need to lean on God, and believe in this compassionate Presence with us: 'God will, indeed, stay with us on our road to restored peace and joy.'
Dealing With Anger
By Louisa Rogers
We can learn to transform our anger from a weapon that wounds ourselves and others to a tool that promotes understanding and healthy change in our relationships. 'Anger at its best is a dialogue,' writes Rogers.
What Every Teen Should Know About Parents
