“The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit” (Ps. 34:18, NKJV).
In August 2009, our family’s life took an unexpected turn when our son Josiah went to Heaven due to a single car accident. In those initial days of great sorrow, the Lord began speaking and showing us things we never imagined. As we inquired of the Lord with many questions, He surprised us with very clear answers. What He has spoken and continues to speak has brought life to our family, Josiah’s friends, and our church community. So, while we have known great sorrow, it has become our mission to encourage Christians to walk through sorrow, leaning on the truth of God’s Word. In the decade since Josiah went to Heaven, God has continued to give me sweet morsels of hope to encourage and remind me that He is still ever-present and restoring my heart.
