My guest today, Sue Laubscher, has personal experience with grief. She’s definitely an expert in handling, accepting, and working through the grief process. In the post below she shares her voice so that should you need to in your own lives you can apply her ideas and find solace.
Children can accept loss if there is something to hope for, something to look forward to. But if they view their lives as one loss after another, recovery is extremely difficult. Here are some general guidelines in helping your children grieve:
“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!” (Isaiah 49:15). Lord, You love my children even more than I do. Give me the wisdom to care for them and nurture them through my grief. Amen
Sue Laubscher and her family have been working through much tragic loss which started a few years back with her own husband’s suicide. Sue’s sister and brother also committed suicide. Last year their other granddad and uncle were also tragically taken – one on the very day of the other’s funeral – so their loss has been astronomical. Her grandkids – she has eight – were young – the youngest a few months and the oldest in Grade 7 when the first loss occurred. Her children – who were obviously young parents – have also had such a very hard road to travel.
