This is a podcast FOR bereaved parents BY bereaved parents. Join your host, Jill Sullivan, as she talks with parents who have lost children of all ages to all types of circumstances. This is a podcast of stories … stories of devastating loss and grief and heartbreak and struggle … and stories of hope and healing and faith, and yes, even joy. Underlying every conversation will be the hope we have in Jesus Christ, which makes it possible to not just survive the loss of a child, but to live well while we’re waiting to see them again in Heaven one day.
Miss Havisham, a character in the book "Great Expectations" by Charles Dickens, was jilted on her wedding day at precisely 9:20 am, and for her, everything stopped at that moment. She spent the rest of her life sitting at her dressing table in her wedding dress, one shoe on and one shoe off, with her wedding cake moldering beside her. In today's episode, Jill talks about how we, as bereaved parents, can find ourselves feeling just like Miss Havisham, and reminds us that we have a Bridegroom who is just waiting for us to take His hand.
