“If you know someone who has suffered loss, his book will help you navigate the deep waters of grief with them. David Knapp has walked the journey through the valley of sorrow and up the hills of discouragement to the joy of winning.”

Grief Relief Ministries offers live presentations by David Knapp to help those who find themselves at the aid of others experiencing any form of grief from loss. Whether your group is currently helping folks going through loss or they are interested in being prepared when the occasion arises, David can give insights as to what to say as well as things to avoid in the process.

David Knapp enters your world softly, and with deep wisdom and emotion he shares his story of loss. Ultimately, he walks beside you through the grief process to a renewed attitude of winning for the next season. His journey of authenticity has not been easy. He has loved and cared for not just one wife who died of cancer long before her time, but two wives. During that journey he raised and blended two families of eight children. He worked as an executive, with side jobs to supplement the mounting financial burdens.

You will learn that David carries no chip on his shoulder. He has a love for the family and a desire to share what he learned through the years. David is not afraid of discussing the raw emotions, but gives equal time to wholeness and healing to help those grieving be in a winning place.

Subject specific topics David has personal experience with include:

  • Loss due to the death of a spouse
  • Grief from a job loss or position change
  • Grieving the loss of a pet or best friend
  • Helping children thru the grieving process
  • Adjusting to extreme family changes (blending, losing a child, empty nest)
  • Helping leaders in personal crisis
  • Dealing with loneliness due to loss
I am writing you a quick thank you message for writing the book you authored on grief and how to handle it. My family was ravaged and touched by grief over the last 10 years following my divorce. The mother of my children kidnapped my two kids and fled to Alaska with them. Took a lot of effort by Law enforcement, Governor’s office and God’s grace in three states to find them and return them to me. Then, while awaiting prosecution for the act, Zach and Katie’s mother committed suicide on Christmas eve 2014. My whole family has been dealing with this pain and sorrow so bad and your book has been a big help in the healing process. You were most definitely guided in your witness. Thank you and God bless.
