I first started blogging after my cousin, Holly, did. Many of you know Holly and her beautiful story of her daughter, Carleigh. Holly has since had 2 more beautiful baby girls, God is incredibly faithful. After blogging for a couple of months I met, Kelly. She and her husband are the founders of Sufficient Grace Ministries. After dealing with the loss of multiple children they decided to start a ministry to minister to those who are hurting from the same loss. There really isn't a lot out there for people to join or connect to after such a devastating loss like losing a child. I am from where Kelly lives, and trust me, there is nothing like this going on except what her and her husband are doing.
This year Kelly has teamed up with some people to host an event for grieving families. They are calling it "Grace for the Journey- A Day of Encouragement and Remembrance." It will be in Harbor Springs, Michigan on Oct. 13 and it will go from 5-9pm. Go HERE for more info!
I beg you, if you are anywhere near this area and you could benefit from this, please go. Or if you know someone who lives near this area and they could benefit from it, please invite them. Better yet go with them. Anyone who is grieving, no matter how long needs support. Support is important from day 1 of the loss till the day 700 million. You can never have enough support.
This event is free, but a free will donation/offering will be taken up to help cover the costs, like when they do a lantern release in memory of those babies lost. And truthfully this is not for families who lost babies, it's for anyone who has lost a child no matter what age.
Please read more about the event, and spread the word. It's so important that our country, our cities, our families get past the stigma and awkwardness that is known as loss.
