There’s something about spring that always boosts my mood, and perhaps you feel the same. Maybe it’s the fresh blossoms on the trees, or the longer days. Yet even so, this spring sees us starting the second year of a pandemic. Some provinces are easing restrictions while others are increasing them due to rising COVID cases. Many of us continue to carry grief and uncertainty into these ambiguous times.

No matter where you are or what circumstances you face, Focus on the Family Canada is here for you. We continue to develop new resources and programs for every stage of life. Here are three that we’re offering for free to you and your family.

Digital Focus on the Family magazine

When the pandemic first disrupted everyone’s lives, Focus on the Family began looking for ways to continue offering our biblically based material while stewarding our resources. One of the ways was through a digital version of our Focus on the Family magazine – featuring all the same great content without the printing expenses. We even heard from one reader who used this new format to pass along to those God placed on his heart (you can read his inspiring story here).

Walking Through Grief PDF booklet

When faced with loss – great or small – very few of us know what to do. We don’t like to feel sad or angry, and we want to find a quick fix for our problems – simple steps to get us through the pain and out the other side. But grief is entirely unique. There is no set timeline and no one way to grieve, and this open-ended process can feel daunting for many. But there are many God-given tools we can use to process loss well. In this free booklet, you’ll find articles and resource suggestions filled with biblically based and psychologically sound advice for walking through grief in a healthy way. Whether you’re experiencing loss first-hand, or you’re unsure of how to be there for a loved one, we want to help.
