Our Mission

Living Forward

Spark of Life exists to help grievers to live forward with confidence and hope after loss. Having personally traveled the road of grief, and working with thousands of others who have, the Spark of Life team knows that though life can never be the same after loss, life can be better than we imagined.

Providing Hope

We offer safe spaces for conversations about the hard things we all experience after loss, whether it’s the loss of a loved one, loss of our health, or loss of our expectations. We provide the encouragement, resources, and hope you need to live forward with a destined purpose.



Spark of Life Co-Founder David Mathews shares hope with those grieving.

The Spark of Life Story centers on helping those with loss to ‘Live Forward.’ There is a huge difference between Living Forward and simply ‘existing’ forward. Discover how to live forward with loss, and find meaning and purpose in life again.

We have hosted over 100 retreats across the country!
