Season Topic: Facing Our Fears After the Death of Our Child
Losing another child is one of podcast host, Laura Diehl’s, biggest fears that she has to fight.
It is also one of the most common fears bereaved parents have, because once we know it can happen to us, we know it can happen again.
Laura tackles this big issue with friend and bereaved parent of over 30 years, Lynn Breeden. Discussing how it is okay and even normal to have this fear, they talk about some of their personal experiences on this subject, how it has affected their other children, and share what they have done to help combat this fear as it continues to rear its head in their lives.
Lynn Breeden’s life was forever changed on October of 1987, when her son Joel Brian died of cancer at the age of five. After coming to terms with this loss, her greatest desire was to help other moms through their own loss, so they do not have to grieve alone. Lynn founded Mourning to Dancing, which is a non-denominational ministry, with the sole mission to offer comfort, hope, and encouragement to mothers who have suffered the loss of a child. She also currently serves as the Pastor for Bremen United Methodist Church in Bremen, Indiana.
