For most of my life, Good Friday primarily served as a heads-up for a nice candy-gorge. I glossed over what it really represented, anticipating instead the large egg-hunts with my cousins around my grandparents’ farm on Easter Sunday.
About Laura M
Laura’s first love is God, then people, and mashed potatoes and otters follow close behind. Just months after completing a master’s in Speech Pathology, Laura was a passenger in a near fatal car accident. The crash had a profound impact on her life, but not in her trust of God’s good character and His sovereignty. She values the unique opportunities the accident has provided for sharing her faith, and also enjoys being outdoors, pencil drawing and playing stringed instruments.

I am not at all claiming to be an expert on the varied topic of grief. Although there may be familiar elements between individuals’ grief experiences, their paths are distinctly unique.
