“The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.” 
Psalm 145:18

Journey of the Heart
by Kathryn Ross
Beverly Leckie Umbrella Ministries

Recently Umbrella Ministries held their annual Journey of the Heart Conference. Moms from all over the country attended, moms who have suffered the loss a child or in some cases, children. You would think this might be a sad occasion with the theme of loss, however, I found it to be inspiring and hope filled. Every detail was thought out with love and understanding as each leader had also experienced the unimaginable loss of a child. We were encouraged to remember and honor our kids, not forget and move on, but learn how to allow God to help us continue up the mountain one step at a time. Speakers and workshops offered helpful ways of living the life God intended us to live in spite of our loss, keeping our child’s memory alive by reaching out in their name. As I left, my heart felt a little lighter knowing I am not alone in this journey, God has provided sisters that know my pain and together we help each other to hope again.

Hope in the Mourning NIV Bible
When a casserole or a greeting card isn’t enough.
Grief is one of life’s toughest challenges. During such times it is difficult to know where to turn. Yet in the midst of your deepest despair, God reveals Himself and His promises for a better tomorrow. The  NIV Hope in the Mourning Bible  works to bring a peaceful sense—in the midst of the coldest winter—that spring will one day come again. The collection of devotions and prayers warmly offer inspiration and hope based in God’s Word and his promises to those who have lost loved ones. This Bible emphasizes the love and hope that your Lord has for you even during your darkest days.
