“I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” —John 14:18
There are many long days and dark nights when you are grieving the loss of a loved one, but with our Savior Jesus Christ the days get shorter and the nights get brighter.
Mourning is a painful process, but relying on God, and the people around you can help you get through it.

Healing through Community
Grief, along with the deep sorrow that accompanies it, is a distressing part of the human experience. Finding connection and comfort through a loving community is one way we can navigate these difficult waters.
In the Book of Mormon, Christ tells us to “bear one another’s burdens, that they may be light; yea, and… mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort.” (Mosiah 18:8—9). We can mourn with our loved ones by comforting them, being there, and listening.
Finding Hope through Jesus
Jesus Christ “a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief” (Isaiah 53:3), knows exactly what you’re going through. He suffered every pain so specifically that He knows your individual grief, and He can help you through it.
