A Note From Liz
"I'd like to give a special thanks to Liz Cowen Furman. Liz demonstrated extreme passion to the things of God and encouraged in ways that I can't even describe. Her love, laughter, smile, joy and kindness shined greatly during the teaching of “Writing from the Heart”. I enjoyed how God used her personality to speak to the uniqueness He has placed in each one of us. I didn't want the session to end as her every word appeared to glorify Jesus. I left her class believing that God will absolutely work through my personality as I continue to diligently seek Him through prayer."
Charity Douglas, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

Everyone grieves differently, though there are similarities. By sharing examples, Liz gets the point across and keeps the listeners engaged. If you have a desire to help others overcome their pain and move on, or if the pain is yours and you long to learn to deal with this tough topic in a manner that provides hope, healing, and encouragement, then this is the class for you. Maybe you are anticipating the loss of someone dear to you, if so come and learn what to expect after the loss of a loved one. Many helpful reading selections are shared and several of the books recommended will be present for conferees to peruse to see which ones appeal to them. Lots of encouragement from scripture for this topic.

Here is a chance to kick back, laugh and take a load off your mind for awhile.
