The Way of Hope, Growing Close to God Through Loss – online workshop

Six Week Online Workshop, (Tuesday October 20th through Tuesday November 24th)

This workshop will find authentic answers to life’s pressing questions: Life can unravel suddenly, in many ways: an unexpected layoff, a doctor’s report, an unwanted divorce, foreclosure, a loved one’s death, a prison sentence, natural disasters, a child’s rebellion, PTSD, and others.  Like rocks tumbling downhill gaining momentum, these events often happen in combination, leaving brokenness in their path. Shock, fear, bewilderment, depression, and anger are just a few of the emotions that threaten to pull us under in the riptide of loss.

If life has given you a broken heart, help is available. Take this workshop The Way of Hope.

 The Way of Hope 6-week workshop series is available at this time for $49.95 (includes material cost, plus $5.00 per session). Scholarships available contact – dave@byhisdesign.co. by His design exists to provide help and encouragement to the afflicted. Suffering may last for a season, but the living God has a way through the loss.

The workshop facilitators:

Dave and Beth Weikel have worked in full-time ministry, business, and public education for over 30 years. God is using their season of loss to provide hope and healing for others.

“An intense period of loss touched our lives in myriad ways: a life-threatening illness, the death of our son serving in Iraq, strained family relationships surrounding this event, elder care and the home-going of three parents in less than a year, a near-fatal car accident of our other son and a few others. What we are learning, because this is not finished yet, is to trust in the faithfulness of our Lord in unseen ways.”

Trained as a disaster relief chaplains, and former career educators with experience in full-time ministry, Dave and Beth have walked through their own intense season of loss. Its heartbreak and upheaval has taught them to cling to what cannot be taken away and has challenged them to wring purpose and meaning from those times of suffering.

“God has afforded us opportunities to proclaim a clear message of hope and redemption through discipleship, partnering with local, national, and international organizations that reach out to desperate populations looking for answers and help.” 

After being discipled into ministry through Peninsula Bible Church’s Intern Program, I have been a pastor in the Colorado Springs area. I also served as a church administrator in California. My ministry would be categorized as verse-by-verse Bible teaching, creative outreach ministries, and in-depth discipleship of men. I also was a teacher and school administrator focused on leadership skills to aid organizations.

When God calls us into a season of loss and grief, He becomes our all and all. He meets us and builds into our lives a dependence on Him, so “that we do not rely on ourselves, but on God who raises the dead” (II Corinthians 1:9). My desire is to share this message of dependence on the sufficiency of Christ.

I’ve been a pastor’s wife, published writer of books, articles and features, editor of a Christian newsmagazine, a secondary English teacher in public school for over twenty years, and a volunteer in ministry efforts and civic affairs that support healthy community.

Since my retirement from full-time employment, I’ve rediscovered time to enjoy my continuing interest in art and design, photography, music, gardening. My husband and I each facilitate small group discipleship studies, travel to teach workshops, and provide resources and training online (byhisdesignonline.com).

In recent years God has been my Sustainer, Rock, and Friend who has brought me through a series of losses I would have never imagined. I am a Bible student and teacher.
