All Day Writing Workshop

        Discover how you can use writing 

                             for healing, health, and hope!

Those of us in it know that grief can overwhelm us.  Writing about our emotions calms our nerves, lowers our heart rate, and decreases our blood pressure.  The tool of writing through the pain of heartache 
provides a respite for our sorrow and coats us with a soothing balm.  No wonder writing has been called an essential tool for healing.

What others are saying:

"The workshops Alice gives bring such clarity to my writing.  I learn and then go home and put it all into practice.  It works!" ~ Theresa M.

"The writing assignments are always given with plenty of instruction and guidance. Reading my work aloud and hearing what others write are added bonuses." ~ Chris S.

"I just finished this workshop and it was great. Alice helped me to realize that it is okay to write about my son. I was able to describe my feelings in a way I didn't know I could. I found out that I had feelings of anger, sadness, guilt, hatred, and that I was holding on to grudges against some people. But I also found the good emotions, too. I am really glad that God brought Alice into my life at just the right time." ~ Bev. W 

"When my husband died, nightmares were constant. After taking Alice's writing workshop, the bad dreams have completely ceased. Yes, I believe in the power of the the pen!"
~ C. H.

"The workshop is just as powerful when you are grieving the loss of a relationship as when you are grieving the loss of a person." ~ P.L.M.
I would like to recommend Alice's "Writing the Heartache" [All Day] workshop.  Although I lost my husband a long time ago, I found it helpful to reflect on all that happened then and how God has brought me to this new place in my life. My  mother used to tell me that I never grieved--I was too busy grieving for my  children at that time; I felt like I didn't have time to grieve for myself. The  workshop brought clarity to that situation. I think it also helped me know  how I can help others who are grieving.

Thank you, Alice.
