When I recorded this interview in 2015 I had no idea just two years later my father would pass away. Stacey's wisdom on grief became my lifeline. This year with so many losses our hearts have experienced constant, low-level grief. On top of being quarantined, some of you may have lost loved ones. As moms, you've been unable to have time/space to grieve (or have a formal memorial service). Today’s podcast guest is my soul sister friend, Stacey Thacker. She and I have been chatting about life, Jesus and family for the many years. Stacey writes online and has authored several books (a new one releasing in just a few months--Threadbare Prayer). When we conducting this interview Stacey shared so much of what she had learned from the loss of her father. Since the interview she's experienced additional trauma and grief. Through it all she remains tethered to her faithful God. She is wise and can be trusted. My hope is whether you are the one who has experienced loss or not, you will be encouraged that even when our worst fears are realized, God’s grace is ever present. And as Stacey points out: “He holds all things together. And all things means all things.” What we chat about: How the message of Stacey’s book, “Hope for the Weary Mom” became realHow do moms grieve while handling the dailiness of motherhoodWhat actions and words of friends comforted her the mostHow children grieve differentlyHow to be available and present with a grieving friendWhat moments over the course of the year bring back griefHow do you manage your home when one child has to be hospitalizedHow God holds all things together Connect with Stacey: Site :: Facebook :: Twitter :: Pinterest Links Mentioned: Releasing Oct 2020: Threadbare PrayerHope for the Weary MomStacey’s posts on grief: My Journey Through Grief and LossNobody’s Cuter than You: A Memoir about the Beauty of Friendship**by Melanie ShankleHolding On to Hope: A Pathway through Suffering to the Heart of God**by Nancy GuthrieI Wasn’t Ready to Say Goodbye: Surviving, Coping and Healing After the Sudden Death of a Loved One ** by Pamela Blair & Brook NoelPsalms 23 & Hosea 2“He holds all things together.” Colossians 1:17 **Amazon affiliate links Featured Sponsor: PrepDish get two weeks of FREE meal plans if you go to http://prepdish.com/dma
