Acknowledge Your Emotions

Grief is a natural response to loss and a complex process that affects each individual differently. While there is no right or wrong way to grieve, it is important to acknowledge and understand your emotions and triggers to work through your grief and heal in a healthy manner.

Rediscover Your Identity

The loss of a loved one makes you vulnerable as their absence changes everything, including your identity and purpose. The life you lived has disappeared and life is confusing. Adapt, heal, and grow so you can accept your reality and integrate it meaningfully into your life.

Support For Your Healing

It can be painful to socialize at this time but maintaining connections, taking part in activities and seeking support from your friends and family is integral to your healing process. Discover the intervention that works best for you and surround yourself with the right support, connections, and guidance.

Hi! I’m Kelci Jager

When my 40 year old husband Collin died after an 18 month battle with leukemia, I was lost and broken. Feelings of intense sadness, anguish, and despair consumed me. I was empty and lonely, and the one person that I wanted to talk to, who I needed to talk to, was gone. This triggered anger, guilt, and confusion on how to move forward in my life. I felt isolated and detached from others because no one could relate to what I was feeling. This social disconnection worsened my pain. Everyone told me I was so strong, but I didn’t feel strong, I felt broken and I longed and mourned for my old life. I was drowning in emotional and physical pain, I couldn’t eat, sleep, or focus on daily tasks or make simple decisions. I struggled to be there for myself; let alone our four children who were also confused and grieving. I had lost my identity, and I didn’t recognize who I was anymore. But I knew I couldn’t let my children lose both parents, I was determined to RISE and thrive.

I realized that I wouldn’t be able to face the grief alone, so I reached out to others. I sought help from professionals, family, and friends. I read and researched everything I could find on the subject of grieving. I focused on my spiritual journey and made self-care a priority. I also chose to share my journey of healing with others. I received thousands of messages from others who felt stuck in their grief and also desired emotional healing and personal growth.

I know it is my calling to share my story and help others who are suffering from grief transform their life while reclaiming their joy. I can now look at the life I shared with my husband and view it through lenses of gratitude and love, which is something that I will forever be grateful for.
