In the darkest moments of our life, the only comfort left for us is a word from God. Dawn and Steve share a devotional from Blackaby Ministries International about how God will guide us through our most difficult moments.
"But the Scriptures must be fulfilled." Then they all forsook Him and fled. Mark 14:49b-50
Dawn and Steve pray over the families and community affected by the recent school shooting at The Covenant School in Nashville.
Dawn and Steve discuss some resources to help us process grief. In addition, Dr. Kathy Koch has some words of wisdom for families during these difficult days.
