Each week during the month of November I am interviewing women about what it looked like to navigate the holiday season while grieving. In Episode 56 I spent time talking with Lindsey Dennis and her perspective was incredibly helpful and relatable, especially for a mom who has received a life-limiting diagnosis for their baby. In this week’s episode I am interviewing Ashlee Karasch about her experience with miscarriage and navigating the holidays while grieving the loss of her baby. Her insight is grace-filled and hope-filled and also full of very practical thoughts about navigating family expectations and potential triggers. She shares helpful advice about what helped her find joy that season and the encouragement she gives at the very end of the episode to all grieving moms is really, really helpful so make sure you listen all the way to the end. Ashley mentions the value of shifting our heart and mind to the reason we have hope in the holidays and how helpful that is amidst grief. One way we do that is by reading God’s Word. Opening the Bible and spending some time there. Even when it’s hard. Even when we’re angry. Even when we’re hurting.
