Grief is part of being human; whether you have experienced it in the past, are currently grieving, or are going to enter the season. So why do so many of us rebel against the pain? Talking to us about this very topic is Brittany Price Brooker. Brittany lost her husband at the tender age of 25 and was left with three kids under three, and her grief. She found solace when she put her faith in God, and she talks us through walking through the valley of grief and the treasures she found along the way. We discuss how she came to terms with her loss and the advice she has for those currently in the season. Find out what Brittany’s favorite Psalms are, and how God brought her and Daniel together to help heal each other as well as their kids. Join us for another meaningful podcast in The Mom Village today.
