The Blessing of Good Grieving

Parenting Pathway Podcast

As you look across the landscape of your current life, you may see it’s one marked by loss—you might have lost someone close to you, lost a job, be missing a milestone moment with family and friends, or simply lost your freedom to come and go. We are all losing something these days. You might be telling yourself that you are fine, and you just need to get through. But are you fine?

We are taught from an early age to get over it, to push through, etc. We are not taught to grieve well. We seldom see others publicly grieve. But if you take a step back, you might see that you are experiencing both emotional and physical pain these last few weeks. You may ask, “Is this grief?”

In today’s episode of the Parenting Pathway podcast, we will hear from Family Ministries Pastor Dave Carl, Care Ministries Pastor Steve Fischer, and Women’s Pastoral Leader Chrissy Smith. Listen in as these three discuss what grief looks like and how we can understand that there is healing and closure on the other side—if we grieve well, which can only be done with the help of wise friends and guidance from God.
