Josh began his career as a junior high math teacher in the public school system. His appreciation for curriculum development was enhanced after joining Grief Comfort as the teen director. During the summer of 2017 Josh began to build a unique six week Bible Study entitled; “The Comforting Word” for adults who had finished the grief support group but wanted a better understanding of what God says about life tragedies. Josh knew for himself, and others, that often during difficult times of loss we question God and His goodness. These questions might look like:
- Why does God allow life losses?
- Does God care about my grief?
- Where is God in my pain?
- How does God help us when tragedy strikes?
- Can I trust God?
Josh designed this exclusive Bible Study curriculum about God’s response to our grief and sorrow using a convenient workbook; filled with Bible stories about grief and the character of God’s nature and goodness. Those who attend the Bible Study are pleasantly amazed and encouraged to learn what God says about grief, loss, and our heartaches. The Comforting Word Bible Study is offered three times each year: winter, summer, & fall; following the same schedule as the adult grief support groups. Check the website calendar to learn when, where, and the time this study is offered. Josh earned a Master of Science in Curriculum & Instruction.
