My name is Susan Burfoot Mead and I’ve been blessed to be married to my soul mate, Holt Mead, since 1979. I think the first 30 years we spent working on learning what soul mates are…Or should I ask him if we are still working on that?
I am the mother of two sons, Matthew, who lives in South Louisiana and Kyle, Forever 20 and in Heaven, where he is doing a Dance with Jesus. Kyle’s been there since March 29, 2008.
I wrote the book Dance With Jesus: From Grief to Grace as the answer to a question posed in the Experiencing God Bible Study I was in the midst of doing. The question asked was what does God want you to do, right now?
I heard deep in my spirit, “Sing My love song.” And laughed out loud. Seriously God, You will have to send me a bucket, because You KNOW I can’t carry a tune. Then the next deep spiritual nudge was, “What’s in your hand? Use it.” I was writing in the workbook, so a pen was in my hand…
I swept away the workbook, got out a clean journal and out the story poured. At 5:30 am, I looked up as I wrote the last words. The very first email I read later that day was from Proverbs 31 Ministries about their upcoming SheSpeaks 2013, a speakers and WRITERS conference. Seriously God? You WANT me to DO something with this? OK.
So the story begins…

Martin has been practicing and teaching mediumship for many years now, and has always been open to the fact that there is an easy way to do things and a hard way to do things. He has approached my life from both perspectives, and found that the easiest methods are the best when they work. Connie calls Martin her paranormal over-achiever.

In the month of May we have concentrated on the theme grieving. We have focused on grieving from a mother’s perspective and family dynamics. This week however, on Talk back Tuesday we will be focusing on grieving from a male and father’s standpoint.
Most male are condition to be the “macho” type. Meaning they are raised and taught not to associate typical grief symptoms such as sadness, crying, depressed mood, and a sense of hopelessness. These characteristic are usually used to define female emotion during the grieving process.
Males tend to bottle up their emotions trying to be strong for their family.
Studies shows that after a loss men experience greater changes in mood than women and experience more consequences on their physical health.
Tune in to Talk Back Tuesday as we continue grieving from a man’s point of view.
