TO THOSE WHO HAVE LOST A CHILD….
Michelle & I are leading a GriefShare group next semester specifically for those who have lost a child. The first session is Wed. evening, Jan 11th, at 6:30pm, at Bacon Heights Baptist Church, 54th & Slide. It’s been three and a half years since our son walked into Paradise. The Lord has told us, “You are now ready to help others walking this horrific road rediscover hope, peace and purpose.” Should you know someone who’s lost a child, don’t hesitate to let them know. I’ll post on this again as Jan 11th nears.
