Welcome to A Counselor’s Journal. This is a place where I share my journey through grief and highlight God’s comfort in mourning.

I will be diving in with a Bible in-hand into the crevices of my heart journeying through grief in the wake of my late wife’s death, Heidi M. Ruiz, who went to be with the Lord on March 28, 2021.

Consider this an invitation to journey along side as I attempt to journal the ebb and flow of God’s grace shaping me during this season.

I am thinking a great deal about God’s comfort, about death, about sin, about God’s Word, about eternity, about what really matters in life…I am also thinking about the gospel, our only lasting hope in the midst of these kinds of hardships.

I pray this journal encourages you, uplifts you and spurs you on toward love and good deeds.
