Silver Lining

Silverlining is a six-week small group designed to help people walk through the dynamics of a significant death.  Studies show that addictions can, very often, have their root in unresolved grief.  Grief comes to us when someone or something significant dies.  The death of a loved one may the most painful source of grief, but it is far from the only source.  The death of a marriage, a job,  a friendship, a home, status, dignity, and…whatever is significant to you.

The author of Silverlining is Dr. T. David Willets.  Dr. Willets has real-time experience on the topic of grief. He has served in local church ministry for more than 35 years. His educational training is in the area of pastoral care and counseling. 
In 2004, David’s wife of 27 years and 18-year-old daughter were killed in an automobile wreck. Through this painful experience, along with his training, Dr. Willets brings sound psychological, spiritual and applicable expertise to those on the journey of grief.

The “Small Group Collection” found on includes all the material needed to facilitate a six-week small group of 10.  Dr. Willets is also available to churches that wish to establish an effective grief ministry.  Go to (
