Motherhood brings a flood of emotions and experiences. We know the laughter and the joy, the frustrations and the hardships, but what about when motherhood brings grief? Whether we’ve had to encounter death, trudge through the deep pain of a chronic disease or disability, or we’ve felt the sting of a circumstance gone wrong, life in a fallen world eventually brings tears and heartache. In this episode, Emily and Laura launch a new mini-series by exploring the origins of sorrow in Scripture, considering what we can learn from others’ stories, and providing three truths we can cling to as we navigate motherhood in the midst of sorrow. No matter what hurt we walk through in this life—and we know the pain can cut unimaginably deep—we have the hope of knowing that Christ has defeated death, and one day our suffering will be no more.
