This is the last episode in our series of Grief and Music after Child Loss.
What you will be hearing is part of a conversation I had with Hannah Linton and her mom, Kathi Wilson that was originally recorded as a video in 2017 for our Hope & Healing Virtual Summit (online conference). Kathi is a singer/songwriter, and one of her CD’s I played many times in my little prayer room as it ministered to me in my place of suffocating darkness after my daughter Becca died.
Connections were made at some point, and Hannah was the first one to reach out to me, asking for help with her loss of a recently birthed a premature daughter who only lived a few hours. We became very close, as we corresponded with each other.
Hannah and her mom, Kathi, have a very special place in my heart, and I am thrilled to give you the chance to meet them in this episode. You will also get to hear one of Kathi’s songs called, These Are the Tears.”
Hannah Linton has been an integral part of the worship ministry of her mom, Kathi Wilson. She is blissfully married to Micah, her first love, and is a happy stay at home mom with her 4 beautifully abundant children. Hannah has lost 8 babies from this earth and walked the road of sorrow till she found the home comfort has become for her. Music and writing have played an important part of this journey.
Kathi Wilson has been crafting lyrics and making melodies to match them for over three decades. Songwriting has genuinely become a crucial element in how she navigates the sometimes very challenging journey we call “life.” As a singer/songwriter, Kathi is regularly motivated to express her deepest longings, in order to maintain a deep connection with her heart, to continue to cultivate her intimate friendship with God, and to build more meaningful relationships with everyone she learns to know. It is one of her greatest delights to release songs of deliverance and healing over broken hearts and torn up lives.
