Event description


For those who have faced the deep loss of a child, no matter the age of that child, the Christmas season can be a time of darkness, confusion and despair. Those who have a faith in Jesus Christ are not exempt from the overwhelming grief that can last for several years when one buries their child.

Join award-winning author, Laura Diehl, live on Facebook, each each Sunday during the advent season for a live Facebook candle lighting, where we will remember our children together, based on that night’s reading in her book Hope for the Future: An Advent Journey for Bereaved Parents. Laura knows all too well how important it is to be determined to allow the Holy Spirit to speak words of comfort and hope to a grieving parent’s heart during that time of intense suffocating darkness.

In Hope for the Future: An Advent Journey for Bereaved Parents, she uses the advent wreath to help bring God’s hope, peace, joy and love back into a grieving parent’s life. This is not in spite of the Christmas season, but because of it, reminding the reader that the reason Jesus came to earth is to bring light into our place of darkness.

We encourage you to purchase your own copy of the book on Amazon or our GPS Hope store, so you can do each night's devotion during the week and then join Laura on Sunday evenings.

Purchase soon to make sure you have it in time, as advent is coming up quickly!

(Hope for the Future can be used along with an advent wreath and candles, but is not necessary.)
