No matter how dark it is after the death of our child, as a follower of Christ, we all have a seed of hope inside of us.
Host, Laura Diehl, and her guest, Glen Lord, talk about how to nurture that seed of hope so that it can grow, allowing you to live a life worth living once again.
Yes, it will look very different and we will remain broken, but we can get to the point where we choose to remain closed in that brokenness, or become open and beautiful, allowing the life of our child to continue through us.
Glen Lord was on the fast track to accomplishing his goal of being a CEO of a fortune 500 company. The death of his son, Noah, in 1999 put brakes on the life he had so carefully planned. As Glen sought a new path, he realized that there was a need for genuine, accurate grief information. This realization, plus his extensive business experience, fueled the founding of The Grief Toolbox and creation of the Walking Through Grief® program, both offer a community of grief resources around the world and a marketplace of grief and memorial products. Glen is past president of the national board of directors of The Compassionate Friends. He is a sought after keynote, inspirational presenter and workshop leader.
