The events that unfolded at Sandy Hook Elementary School rocked us as we heard about what happened.
We sat in our chairs after we recorded this podcast as tears filled our eyes.
How is it that this week we would be talking about grief during the holidays and this tragic event happens?
We do not know why, but we serve an awesome God. Our prayers go to the families and marriages that have been impacted by loss.
We look back over eight years as we celebrate the short life of our son Andrew.
He never took a breath and yet his life has impacted our marriage in many ways.
This week we talk about how time has healed our broken hearts and our broken marriage.
In both dark times and joyous times it is amazing how God has worked in us.
