On this National Grief Awareness Day, we think it's important to pause and have a real, biblical, Christ-centered conversation about grief. Kim Erickson joins us. When Kim's three-year-old son tragically passed away, she found plenty of resources on grieving. She says what she really needed, though, "was someone who would give me advice for living, not just grieving . . . How do I get through the grocery store without crying? What do I do with my son's things? When will my mind stop replaying the emergency room scene?" Don't miss her book from Moody Publishers, "Surviving Sorrow: A Mother's Guide to Living with Loss".
Kim Erickson began following Christ after the death of her three-year-old son from strep throat in 2008. Her growing relationship with the Lord and her Bible saved her from the pit of grieving the loss of a child. During this time, she also developed a deep, abiding love for the Word of God. Kim's love of Scripture led her to develop a website and teaching blog to help other women fall in love with the Word of God. She is an attorney who practiced business litigation for thirteen years before becoming a law professor. She earned her bachelor's degree in elementary education, and has returned to her passion for teaching. Kim lives in Florida with her husband and son.
