Karisa Moore lost her oldest son to suicide in 2014. In this episode, Karisa and I talk about finding hope after losing a loved one to suicide. Grief is a dance we don’t want, but we can grieve with hope. As a mental health professional, suicide is a topic we don’t talk about enough. When we don’t talk about it, the enemy uses it to keep us isolated, feeling alone, and in despair.
In this episode, we talk about the fact that no matter what we’re going through, God is always there, and He cares. My guest, Anne Peterson, knows pain and loss. She experienced miscarriage, the murder of her sister (a victim of domestic violence), the loss of two brothers within a short period of time, and the death of her 14-month old granddaughter to Trisomy 18. Yet, she still maintains her hope. Join us as she shares how she finds hope in the midst of grief.
