This book was written to help widows and widowers understand grief in the emotional and physical aftermath of death and guide the way back to fullness of life.” This series was developed by our own Ms. Julie Yarbrough who was married for many years to the Rev. Leighton Farrell who served as a longtime Pastor of Highland Park UMC.

An Invisible Sisterhood

In a world where it seems everyone is posting pictures of their children to Facebook or swapping stories about the joys of motherhood - those of us who are unable to conceive often feel invisible. The goal of this class is to help us give voice to the unique experience that we share while embracing God's love and plan for us as his beloved daughters.
