Healing Out Loud Memorial Candle Making Workshop - Holiday Edition

Grief Grace & Gratitude - a Pre-Mothers Day Candle Making Workshop


As a mother who unfortunately lost her son to gun violence, I know first-hand the emotional rollercoaster one experiences on a day usually reserved as a joyous reflection of being a mother.


My way of coping through the past 3 Mother's Day without hearing Jalen say "happy Mother's Day Ma", has always been to do something for other mothers now journeying in similar shoes and for at least a brief moment bless them with something to put a smile on their face.


So, it is with Grief, Grace & Gratitude, on Saturday, May 8th, I hosted a FREE Pre-Mother’s day Memorial Candle Workshop event for mothers who have experienced the loss of a child (ie: to gun violence, domestic violence, accident, health-related, etc.) doesn’t matter if this will be her 1st or 20th Mothers Day without the physical presence of her child.


Each mother made candles in honor, remembrance & celebration of her child.
