A Friend In Grief

Just before getting pregnant with my third child, I met Molly.
3 years ago she and her husband lost their second child, a little girl, Felicity. She, like Jairus, was born sleeping.
The following link is to a series of posts from Molly's blog. Its super practical if you are trying to help a friend or family member who is going through grief. And if you are stumbling through your own painful journey, you will find in Molly a friend who truly understands the ache of your heart.

How to Help Your Grieving Friend

May it encourage you to be bold in your love for someone who is hurting. To grieve alongside your friend is a precious gift to them. Yes, it will be painful, but that is love. Love is messy and wonderful and painful and sacrificial. And it's worth going through together. So be strong and courageous, reach out in love.
