From Grief To Gratitude Announces Grief Coaching Services And Grief Coach Certification Program

 
 

Evangelist Patricia M. Blaino

Bowie, Maryland


Evangelist Patricia M. Blaino lost her husband, of 46 years, in 2012 with a spontaneous departure due to his ongoing diabetic condition. Her husband's death left a severe void, needless to say, but in turn birthed an extreme PEACE which cannot be explained.  Before the death of her husband, her family circle had begun to diminish with close members leaving one or even two at a time. No one could explain this emptiness inside or even how to cope with the pain of it during the years of grieving and the reoccurring pain of grief.  Now she has come to the season in her life that she must seek answers. She states, "I must get the answers to the questions that I have been asking God to help me to understand. He told me it is in His Promises that He has made toward us." She came to understand that the answer was His peace in her life.  Evangelist Blaino has learned that grief is vast. Not only does it encompass the loss of a loved one, but it could be someone grieving their health, finances, livelihood and just life itself. From her story, she has now learned to unveil the same peace of God that He has placed in His children.   Evangelist Blaino is a mother of four (4) wonderful adult children, grandmother of seven (7) and GG Ma of one (1). As a survivor of breast cancer, she finds herself serving at The Way of the Cross Church of Christ, International. She is a Missionary, Evangelist, Prayer Warrior, National Christian Education Assistant Director and Graduate of the Apostolic Christian College.  "My purpose is to listen and help transition someone to His Abundant Life.  “From Grief to Gratitude."

Rev. Sindile Dlamini, MDiv.

Washington, D.C.


Rev. Sindile Dlamini is a Certified Grief to Gratitude Coach; she invites you to participate in the “Let’s Talk About Grief” series individually, in group settings and corporately. As a Grief to Gratitude Coach, Sindile is passionate about honoring your grief story as normal, natural and necessary to begin your journey of recovery, healing and wholeness. In many multi-cultural communities, the grief story and process is often overlooked and ignored; and not many people come to terms with their loss; and live life with unresolved grief that contributes to living with grief for a life time. Furthermore, many will grieve silently, in secret and suppress associated feelings and emotions. Therefore, Sindile will partner with you and use tools to create a grief coaching platform to meet you where you are in your grief journey; create a safe space and circle to process your grief based on your comfort level and experience.  In addition, to echo the words of Dora Carpenter, “death is inevitable; moving beyond grief is a choice.”  Therefore, my primary purpose is to assist you as a client to move beyond grief and choose a personal power plan to live again in peace and purpose; and to choose to honor the life and legacy of your loved one in a meaningful manner.

Heather Horton, Esq.

Washington, D.C.


Have you experienced the sudden loss of a loved one? Did the loss result from trauma or tragedy?  Heather Horton is a survivor of a traumatic single car accident in 2005 that claimed the life of her mother and aunt after a relative fell asleep while driving.  In the days after her mother’s death and the funeral, Heather asked God to show her why she survived the accident rather than her mother.  As she sat for three months recovering from her own debilitating injuries from the accident, God revealed to Heather that she had yet to fulfill the purpose for which He created her.  Heather searched for years to discover God’s purpose for her life thinking that her commitment to serving others in her community or at work in whatever way necessary was the answer.  Seven years later, Heather participated in a coaching program through her job that offered one-on-one coaching as well as group coaching to assist her in leading her attorney team within the Federal government.  Her coaches created safe space, listened intuitively and asked powerful questions that allowed Heather to shift her focus from feeling powerless to walking in complete power in all areas of her life, including the grief she still experienced around the tragic loss of her mother.  Thereafter, Heather trained with Coach Diversity Institute to become a coach to create that same safe space for others to also walk victoriously in their power.  It was during her coach training that God revealed the purpose for which he created Heather and the reason she survived the accident – to help others navigate through the wilderness of their grief journey.  As a From Grief to Gratitude Certified Coach, Heather Horton will create that safe space for you to share your grief no matter where you are on your journey.  From her own personal experience and training, she will help you shift your focus from the loss and pain so that in your own unique way you learn to manage your grief bursts and celebrate your loved one’s life and legacy when you are ready.    Heather Horton is originally from Baton Rouge, LA but now resides in Washington, DC.  She has also lived in New Orleans, LA (Hurricane Katrina Survivor), Phoenix, AZ and Greensboro, NC. 


When you are ready to walk through your grief and embrace meaning and purpose in your life again or for the first time, email Heather Horton at hortonesq@aol.com to schedule a complimentary 30-minute consultation.
