Present in the Pain is the apostolate ministry of Eileen Tully, a Catholic convert offering healing retreats and helpful resources for grieving mothers who have experienced the death of a child from pregnancy through adulthood.

“Eileen Tully shares her heart and wisdom with the gentle but powerful authority of one who has been with Jesus at the foot of the Cross.”

Sonja Corbitt, Catholic Evangelista

The new Present in the Pain Community is a place where you can meet others, share your story, find support, and more! Click the image to join this new space and connect with me and others outside of social media.

I can’t wait to see you there!

My new podcast for grieving mothers is here! Click the image to go to the podcast website. A new episode will be released each Wednesday. I pray that it will be a source of encouragement for you and help you to feel seen and understood in the pain of child loss.

I’d be so grateful if you gave it a listen, shared it with someone else, or offered a prayer that it would be helpful to those who need it!

Coming soon: one-on-one grief support

If you have participated in my retreat – in person or online – and feel the need for some additional support but don’t feel comfortable participating in a group call, this is for you!

I will be offering individualized support to help you go deeper in your healing. Navigating relationship struggles, helping your children in their grief, feeling dry in your spiritual life – there are so many facets to grieving and healing, and I want to support you through them. I’m not a professional therapist, but I’m someone who has been down this road and understands the complexity and pain.

If you are interested in scheduling a Zoom call with me, click here to be added to the waitlist.  This one-on-one support will begin in September.

The retreat course or an in-person retreat is a prerequisite to this additional support.

My blog about healing and homemaking

Experiencing a tragedy like child loss can change us drastically, rearrange our priorities, and teach us so much – about ourselves, about others, and about God. This blog is about learning to heal, grow, and pursue personal holiness amidst the chaos of motherhood.
