Telling Our Grief Story: The Forgotten Audience

Just as Joseph lived out his story in an Egyptian prison, he share it with two people and years later one remembered the interpreter of dreams and told Pharaoh. We never know where our story leads in the context of God’s story, but we know that He has the salvation of many in mind.

Toni Lepeska

We find ourselves pulled toward others who have lost loved ones like us. We want to help, to listen or to offer guidance. We may even decide to share our experiences in a larger forum.

We blog. We write articles. We speak to groups, but we may not reach the numbers we hope for. And thus, we experience frustration. Or disillusionment. We found meaning in our suffering by sharing what we learn with others, but our efforts aren’t getting much of anywhere.toniporchphoto2

I lost my son to suicide. Each day since, I commit my day to turning the page and continuing to write my story. There is no deeper grief, but I know too, that there is no greater hope than bringing life out of death. I offer each page to you as a testimony that there is hope for abundant life!
