For those walking the path of grieving the loss of a baby or child, we offer grace for the journey and a friend to walk with you... There are moments on this walk when we feel we cannot go on. Moments when a friend comes alongside us to point us again to the One who sustains us. A friend to lift us in prayer. A friend to allow us to lean on her as she leans on Him. A friend, who is not afraid to walk through the valley in the rain, with a storm mounting. She is not afraid, because the Lord is her strength and her shield. She is not afraid because she doesn't walk alone. And because He has walked with her through the valleys and the storms, He has sent her to walk with you. And He will carry you both through the rain, through the storm, through the unknown dark alleys to secure, dry ground. Whether you are a newly bereaved mother or a seasoned mom who has watched the Lord make beauty from ashes in your life. Whether you need someone to lean on or you are the shoulder that can bear the burden, we hope you will walk with us as we are walking with Him. We hope you will join us with our broken umbrellas, with all our little quirks and imperfections in our various stages on this walk, as His grace washes over us in the pouring rain.

Featuring Holly and Laura This Week...Show Them Some WWY Love

It's time for back to school for us this week, and I'm sure for many of you, as well...but I hope you can take a few minutes to stop by and show some love to the two mamas we are featuring this week on Walking With You.

Most of you probably know my dear friend, Holly - Mommy to Carleigh, Jordan (and Kyndra, too!) and author of the Caring For Carleigh blog. Holly has such a compassionate, beautiful heart and is often found showing love and encouragement to another babylost mama. Her blog is an excellent resource for a family whose child has been diagnosed with anencephaly...and for anyone facing the loss of a child. She also serves on the board of Sufficient Grace Ministries, and is always willing to lend a hand...or swing a golf club...or serve hot dogs and ice cream...or whatever activity we find ourselves doing.

We are also featuring Laura, mommy to Virginia this week. Laura's daughter went home to heaven in May, due to a condition called cystic hygroma. You can read more about Virginia at Virginia's Story. One of her posts that really spoke to my heart shares what the body of Christ looks like in the acts of love we can display to those who grieve. Laura is currently walking through another loss, the miscarriage of her 11 week old baby. Please take some time to show her some love and pray for her this week.

Please show some love to these sweet mamas and take some time to cover their families in prayer this week. Thank you so much! Love to all...
