Faith-Based Retreats for Bereaved Parents Finding hope and life after the loss of a child can be incredibly challenging.
The loss of a child, no matter that child’s age, is profoundly life-altering. It’s as if the foundations of everything we once held dear have been shaken and cracked.
The While We’re Waiting ministry offers free Biblically based retreats, where bereaved parents form bonds and make connections with other moms and dads who truly understand the experience of child loss.
The loss of a child is very isolating – Making us feel alone in a world that no longer understands us.
Relationships with others can become strained because we are no longer the same people we were before. Pop-culture theology and well-intended platitudes from family and friends often hurt more than they help. Others move on while we are still seeking just to regain our footing.
As parents who have lost children, we are faced with the reality that we may have many years ahead of us on this earth before we see our children in Heaven. As we face this journey, there are some questions we need to work through. Our While We’re Waiting retreats are designed to help bereaved parents answer these questions in a way that would honor our children and glorify God.
