I’m so happy to share my friend, Marci Pecora, with you. Marci is a licensed marriage and family therapist, well-acquinted with grief. After a nearly 5-year battle with cancer, Marci’s husband went to heaven 10 years ago, leaving behind Marci and their two children. Through grief groups and with the support of family and friends, Marci has not only survived, but found healing and purpose in walking others through their unique stories of grief. I am so grateful that she would join us to share some helpful tips and wisdom for understanding and walking through seasons of loss – anytime, but especially during the holidays.
Whether you are grieving a loss now, or know someone else who is, I think you’ll find this to be a really helpful conversation. What Marci shares will be useful to all of us eventually, and I hope you’ll consider sharing this episode so those who need it will find it.

For help with sleep:
Psalm 91:1-2: Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

I’m especially ENJOYING the WONDER DEVOTIONAL this Advent season!
I love the Dwell Bible app! Dwell is inspired by the Psalmist who encourages us in Psalm 119 to hide the word of God in our hearts. Dwell is an app that literally reads you Scripture! They have built the most beautiful listening and reading experience for the Scriptures. Dwell has over a dozen new recordings of the Bible; they’ve hand-picked voices that will engage and inspire you! — There are playlists, plans, and the most soothing sleep-support lists! And they have the best versions of the Bible too, like the ESV, NIV, KJV, NLT, The Message, and others.
I am using the Dwell App to read along and work on my Scripture memory, and to walk through Advent with their WONDER DEVOTIONAL!
