Hey! I’m Stef.

I help Christian women navigate grief to breathe, laugh & live again.

God gave me the heart and passion to help you walk through your hardest moments.  You need to know there is life on the other side of grief.  Maybe you can’t even breathe right now and the thought of laughing or being happy again seems unrealistic.

There are no platitudes here!  I know what it’s like and will support you in ways that only a fellow traveler can!

“Why did this Happen?”   “When will this pain End?”


I know what it’s like to watch someone you love die; to sit in a corner and scream, to be angry with God and to hurt so bad you can’t even describe it.  Are you going through this now?

There is hope and help!  You can heal and get to the point that you are ready to create a life for yourself.  If that sounds far away or even impossible, you are in the right place.

Let’s start with this one statement which may be incredibly helpful to you right now. It’s Grief – You’re Not Crazy!

There are so many changes are occurring in your body – physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  Your world has been turned upside down, but you can survive – and even thrive.  You will breathe, laugh and live again.  One step at a time, I’ll show you how through coaching and support programs.

The healing you want is real and within your reach!  Let’s work together so you can experience a ‘great day’ again.

No “Heaven Needed Another Angel” Here!


How long will this pain last? 

I asked that a million times in my grief journey. Everything was exhausting from getting out of bed to taking a shower.  It was confusing and overwhelming.  I even tried to call my loved one on the phone a few times.  I questioned God and everything else.

I struggled to live daily life.  If you have felt this, you’re not alone! I’ve been in your shoes, and I found happiness on the other side. I know it’s waiting there for you, too!  Let me help you.

Frequently Asked Questions

I'm having a hard time after my loved one died. What will help right now?

IMPORTANT!  If you are having suicidal thoughts, please call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 800-273-8255 for help.

If you are struggling to get a handle on how to deal with the grief you are feeling, please listen to the Grief 2 Great Day Podcast.  The podcast offers Christian Grief Support by understanding grief, the role of faith, and processing daily life.  The goal is for you to Breathe, Laugh and Live Again!

We also offer a “What To Do After the Loss of a Loved One” Workshop to help you know what side is up. This is for you if you need DIRECTION in the beginning of your grief journey.

If you are ready to dig deep into your healing, we offer a 6-week “It’s Grief – You’re Not Crazy” Support Program with audio, video and interviews with 4 fellow travelers in grief.

If you prefer 1:1 interaction, we also offer coaching.  All of these resources are available on this site.

What does “faith-based” mean?

We believe in Jesus Christ and know the power of the Word of God.  This does not take the pain of grief away, but our faith gives us a hope that only God can give.

Do you offer grief coaching?

Yes, I offer 1:1 grief coaching.  You and I will meet on Zoom for a one-hour session with the goal of helping you identify and take your next best healing step.  “Work with Me” and then ‘coaching’ for more detailed information.

Do you have a group on social media that I can join?

YES!  It is a private Facebook group called “The Grief Group for Christian Women.”  This Community provides a safe place for those going through grief to ‘Love On’ and ‘Lift Each other Up.’  When the thing we share is grief – the bonds of friendship are unique and meaningful.  Click on ‘Grief Group.’

How can I help a friend who is grieving?

Visit the ‘Podcast’ or ‘Work with Me’ page for resources including ‘What to Do Now After the Loss of a Loved One’ Workshop or the “It’sGrief, You’re Not Crazy,” 6-week Online Support Program and I also offer individual grief coaching.  These are amazing options to invest in their healing and in their future. And these are more helpful than buying them flowers which quickly fade.

What is the “It’s Grief – You’re Not Crazy" Support Program?

This is a 6-Week personal online grief support program that can be taken at any stage of grief.  This is a way to dig deeper into your healing.  It’s like going to a grief support program without going to an in-person program and a way to understand what you are going through (physically, emotionally, and spiritually).

The program provides practical steps and can be taken over a shorter or longer period of time depending on what you need and can handle. It is also a way to plug in to weekly encouragement and support. This program was created by Stef Cabaniss because she understands how grief can make you feel hopeless.  She will provide help and can help in ways that others cannot.

Who is “It’s Grief – You’re Not Crazy” online support program for?

This online support program is for you if:

  • You are struggling with the loss of a loved one.
  • You cry more than you don’t or find it hard to catch your breath sometimes.
  • You aren’t a ‘group’ person or have a hard time asking others for help.
  • You feel like you “can’t get through this.”
  • You need help with the kind of pain, you have never experienced before.   

This is personal yet private help.  This online support program is NOT for anyone who is looking for counseling, those who are not ready or too busy to deal with their loss, and those not willing to put the necessary effort into their healing.

Is this grief counseling?

No, this is a fellow traveler walking the journey WITH you.  The coaching and course provides practical advice, help, some tears and a little laughter that only someone who has been through grief can give.

Do you ever offer scholarships for “It’s Grief – You’re Not Crazy”?

Yes. We understand how difficult the grief journey is and want to help as many people as possible. Because of this, we offer a limited number of scholarships each year. Please email us your desire and the reason you need to receive a scholarship and we’ll share the necessary steps.

Do you have a money-back guarantee?

Yes, we have a 60-day money back guarantee. We want you to have a positive experience and though we can’t guarantee the pain from grief will be gone, we can guarantee that the support program will make a big difference in your journey! We ask that you have put in the necessary effort, so email us your desire and reason for a refund and we’ll share the necessary steps. Our greatest goal is to make your grief walk easier, so please take the time to engage in the program!
