Grief is a powerful emotion that so many do not know how to navigate on either side. It’s difficult to know what to say or how to love a friend that is walking through something hard. Whether it’s infertility, loss, sickness or another struggle, we must be better. We have to figure out a way to not hide behind the awkwardness or the excuse that you don’t know what to say. We must roll up our sleeves and walk through the hard things with our friends. We must learn how to love them in the midst of the storm.
I am honored to share my longtime friend, Ashlyn Montgomery’s story of both infertility and full term stillbirth. Grab your tissues because this one is tough. There are so many moments when life can seem so unfair, but Ashlyn gives such great insight into walking this road with grace. She covers what grief is, what to say and what not to say to someone dealing with loss and the importance of acknowledging what someone is walking through.
My prayer for this three part series with Ashlyn is that we would all learn how to be better and really learn how to love people well. Life is hard. So let’s not walk these roads alone.
