Stewarding Grief Well With Our Kids, Part I
May 23, 2023
Our guest today, Donna Nicholson Stief, is coming to us with a topic not often discussed – the topic of grief. Did you know that you CAN heal from all the many layers of grief? To quote Donna, “Grief is not a problem to be solved – it’s not something that needs fixed. It’s the natural, God-given response to love and loss. It’s a journey, and we need to understand that journey and learn how to navigate it.” Unprocessed grief swings the door wide open for Satan to get a foothold – but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Donna will share her story of tragic loss and talk about why it’s so important to process and discuss it. You’ll be inspired by this conversation of love, loss, and deep joy.
Ready to lean in to the advice Donna shares on stewarding grief with your children? Let’s go!
