This is the 100th episode of the Grieving Parents Sharing Hope Podcast, which means it has been going faithfully for almost two years already!
In trying to decide what to do for this special episode, I realized that many of our listeners might not know things like how the ministry of GPS Hope got started, what happened that caused me to start writing my first book, or the crazy story of how we ended up purchasing the Hope Mobile (a 38-foot motor home) to live in full-time. So, I asked “the man behind the curtain” to join me, so we could share some of these things with you together.
You will also hear me share a nugget from a verse in the Bible that has a new meaning to all of us, after the death of our child.
Here’s to the first 100 episodes, and to many more, as God continues to lead the ministry of GPS Hope!
Dave Diehl is retired from a career of over thirty years in IT. He is the cofounder of GPS Hope, and is much of the “behind-the-scenes” support, including technical support for the ministry, and driving the Hope Mobile. Dave wrote a chapter in Laura’s book When Tragedy Strikes, and ministers directly to grieving fathers around the nation at the GPS Hope & Healing retreats.

Grieving Parents Sharing Hope (GPS Hope) is here to walk with parents through the darkness of child-loss, guiding them to a place of hope, light and purpose.
It is a safe place for anyone who has lost a child from this earth. There is no shame or judgment in where you are in this journey, including if you are struggling in your relationship with God or your faith has been completely shattered.
