Kierra Sheard is one of countless people who are learning to live without their loved ones who unexpectedly passed away from the coronavirus wreaking havoc across the globe.
The singer-songwriter and actress whose recent self-titled album KIERRA dethroned rapper Kanye West’s No.1 “Jesus Is King” album on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart after six months, is sharing her process. Willie Mae Sheard is the mother of Kierra’s father Bishop J. Drew Sheard, the pastor of the Greater Emmanuel Institutional Church of God in Christ in Detroit, Michigan.
She was more than just a grandmother but also one of Kierra’s best friends. On her YouTube show “Katching Kierra,” the singer-songwriter reveals how she is coping with the loss during the coronavirus pandemic. Kierra acknowledges that her grandmother lived a good life and was a believer who knew there was a life after this one.
Still, she has allowed herself time to cry and pray.
“I have my moments when I don’t ignore it, and I don’t try to be superwoman,” the singer-songwriter says. “If I need to cry, I cry and I pray and I ask my questions.”
In the video, Kierra mentioned five key things that have helped her experience the peace of God while using these coping mechanisms :
- Talking About It/Journaling
- Staying Busy
- Dedication to Ministry
- Spending Time With Family and Friends
- Staying On Prayer Calls
