Lorraine currently resides in Juárez, Mexico, where she works with young people and is developing a Spanish youth curriculum. Besides teaching, she also has a gift for ministering to people who have recently experienced the death of a loved one. By analyzing the ways she and her friends have handled grief, Lorraine has discovered how the time-tested words of Scripture apply to dealing with the emotions evoked by grief. Lorraine is one of the authors interviewed on the video course called 'Grief Share' (www.griefshare.org) which is sponsored by Church Iniciative (1-800-395-5755).
