We are in a series of Grief and Music. This week, our guest, Yolanda Blade-Rory, shares with us her experience with music and worship after the unexpected death of her seven-year-old young son, Sasha, who died of an unknown heart condition.
The episode ends with listening to one of the songs Yolanda wrote in her place of fighting the suffocating grief.
