Grief is hard to describe but when you're in it, you know it. It's something everybody will have to endure at some point in time so how can we do endure it “well”, if that's even a thing. We're joined by Davy Blackburn, a man who knows what grief is and how God is faithful to show up in it.

Susan, your host, decided to receive a special guest for today's episode, Avery Thatcher, who is the CEO and founder of the Inner Stillness Outer Chaos Podcast and the Flow State Membership. When she started her career as a Registered Nurse working in the ICU, she noticed that the majority of the reasons people found themselves in the ICU were because of illnesses and diseases that could be linked to chronic stress. She decided to get out of the reactive side of medicine and now helps highly sensitive high achievers prevent burnout and reverse the negative health effects of stress. After experiencing a significant change in health in 2018, Avery had to learn to redefine her identity and grieve the loss of who she used to be. Now she shares her story openly to help others realize that they are not alone in their struggles and talk about the strategies that helped her heal along the way. Key Takeaways: Avery shares how a health problem transformed her life and led her to grieve the life she used to have. Avery shares how she got to the point of releasing who she used to be and accepting who she had become. What do you no longer identify with? Your grieving path is unique; there is no normal way of grieving. Avery explains what “What if” affirmations are and how they help to hold space for yourself. Seeing emotions as information rather than positive or negative can be really impactful. Grief is the last form of love you can give to the person you lost. Avery shares the steps she took in her transformational process. Avery shares how the self-compassion script works. As a society, we reward high achievement but Avery redefines the concept. It is OK to voice your feelings. Slow down until you can hear your thoughts and the wisdom of your body and feelings.

About Alison Pena: Alison Pena is a Global Speaker, Grief Resilience Coach & Bestselling Author who helps clients develop clear strategies to reconnect, re-engage, reinvent, rebuild and reset essential relationships disrupted by grief. She calls herself “Bad Widow” because after her husband passed away in 2016, people were continually telling her how to be, how to act, what to feel etc. She took a “rebel” stance deciding to become her own self. Having learned to grieve on her own terms, she now helps people through the various stages of their own grief to feel stronger and more able to take on what lies ahead. What We Discuss In This Episode: Alison shares her own story of how to deal with grief and move through life on your own terms. She shares how people react so differently through this process, and yet it's a process we'll all have to face, one way or another, during our lifetime. In moving through grief, we need to reconnect with self, reinvent ourselves, and rebuild our networks. People experience all of these when grieving but, of course, grief is very personal and universal. We all grieve in our own way and in our own time. People are often driven away as friends, acquaintances, and family members go through their own process of grief, because many times, people don't know how to respond to the person who's grieving. Alison shares not only her own experiences but also gives us some tips on how we can best help friends and family through times of grieving and be the best support and help possible to them during this very difficult period. Alison gives us hope and encouragement as she shares her own experiences and her own outcomes.

This week's guest is Donna Cameron.As a result of Covid 19, it's undeniable that over the past couple of years, almost all of us have been impacted in some way by the pandemic and have experienced a form of grief or loss. This week, we welcome back to the show, Donna Cameron who is a qualified psychologist with over 20 years of experience in private practice and in this episode Donna discusses both these very topics. Donna shares with us how loss has been felt globally and some continue to grieve the loss of their jobs, their businesses or their incomes, while others, including children, have been affected by the loss of social connection with their friends, and family during those times of isolation. Sadly and so tragically many have experienced the loss of a loved one. Irrespective of the loss, everyone's journey and experiences throughout this time have been different, and for many, they are unsure of how to overcome grief and adversity. Donna helps us understand what grief is, as well as how it impacts us physically and emotionally and she also breaks down the five stages of the grieving process. Donna offers advice on coping mechanisms that will allow us to process grief in a more positive manner and shares with us what to say to someone who is in the midst of the grief, without minimising their emotions. This is such an extremely timely episode as we return to day-to-day life in our new normal. There are there so many brilliant pieces of advice offered by Donna. So whether you or someone you know is grieving or dealing with loss, this is a not to be missed interview with Donna Cameron.In this episode05:42 – Loss and Grief experience11:31 – Different types of Grief and Loss14:35 – What is Grief?16:25 – Physical and Emotional Symptoms of Grief17:38 – Heartbreak20:17 – Redirecting Anger to Something else24:57 – Acceptance28:10 – Grieving Death vs Grieving through breakup30:57 – Best Way to Heal36:16 – Routines and Patterns40:33 – Right and Worst things to say to someone grieving45:00 – Grieving: Men vs Women50:44 – Explaining Loss and Death to children56:27 – The best piece of advice for a person dealing with their own griefFor more go to https://drmarisaleenaismith.com/69Like this episode?

Are you a yes person? Do you overschedule your life because others need your help? God uses us to help others, He gives us opportunities to minister to others, but that is different than not being able to say no. If you feel frazzled more than peaceful or exhausted in the work of helping rather than energized, this may be an area to be addressed in your life. During grief, you don't have the luxury of doing all the things you did before without sheer exhaustion if you can even do them at all. In grief, you need your energy for processing what you've been through and for healing. So, maybe this is the best time to begin prioritizing your valuable self and allow some quiet moments in your life to ‘be still' and know God more.

If you knew everything there was to know about God, how would you live your life? This Sunday, Pastor Mark Francey shares on the importance of the Holy Spirit. God's manifest presence is different than His omnipresence. The Holy Spirit is the part of God that lives in you and dwells in you. You never want to miss out on friendship and unity with the spirit of God. If you never know the Holy Spirit as a person, you will never know Him personally. When you have an encounter with the Holy Spirit, you have a unique boldness, faith, and courage. God's favorite thing to do is give gifts to his kids. And his favorite gift to give is the Holy Spirit. We need to honor the Father, believe in the Son, and receive the Holy Spirit. Grieving is something you do when you do something that causes the fellowship to end. The Holy Spirit can't bring to remembrance what you didn't read in the word. and He loves to remind you of who Jesus is and who Jesus says you are. 1. Dwells with you 2. Guides you into all Truth 3. Prays for you 4. Be your helper 5. Comforts you 6. Shows you things to Come 7. Fill you with Power Need prayer?

It's the final episode of this season 3. And it's with my big brother, Kyle.The only other person in this world who truly knows what it is like to live without our mum. I've wanted to record an episode with him from the very beginning if I'm honest, but the time was never right. We just weren't ready to sit down with each other and really look at each other and see the devastation in one another's face. The reality that we're even having this conversation about her. Mum was something to a lot of people. She embodied the word community. A walking, talking safe place for many. But she was our mumIt was tough but relieving to sit down & talk to my brother. To hear how that day played out for him in his eyes & being honest about the way we dealt with the aftermath. How we fell apart to come back together again and what it's like being the oldest sibling when a parent dies. We answered some of your questions too, with some humorous, surprising answers from himI learnt so much about him and likewise him about me. I didn't know the hardest part for him was leaving the hospital. And he didn't know the hardest part for me was seeing her body. If there's one thing I hope you take away from this episode, it's to ask the questions.Have the conversation. You may not get the answers you need or want, but have the bloody conversation. Don't leave it till it's too late. It's not as bad as you think.Thank you for listening and being here for this season. It's been my most consistent season yet and I'm proud! I'll be back in September with the WEEKLY season 4.

This week on the podcast I am honored to be talking with Emily Stangl about her experience navigating marriage after losing her daughter Tilly. We talk about the challenges she and her husband faced and how they worked through, and are working, through those challenges. Emily shares the ways she grieves differently than her husband and what that practically looks like in their marriage as well as the role that self care played in their healing individually and also as a couple. Emily shares with me all the beautiful ways that she and her husband grieve together and individually, but not only that, she also shares with me how they parent Tilly, their first and only child, now that she is in heaven. Emily gives such practical and intentional and beautiful ways of doing this and I am sure that it will give you freedom in finding ways to mother and parent your baby in heaven too. We also talk about what it looks like to support a grieving dad, especially when he's different from you and what it looks like to compromise for the sake of grieving together. It's a really beautiful conversation that will give you hope in this journey – that there can be joy even here in a marriage that has walked through and experienced the unimaginable. I'm so grateful for Emily and her wisdom and her story and I am sure it is going to bless you.

A few years ago now, Cassie's daughter, Ella, wrote a piece on the meaning of beauty. In the final sentence of the piece, Ella wrote, “The only thing that means anything at all is excruciating beauty if only you can find it.” For people who follow me on social media, they will recognize that I have grown to appreciate that phrase and even apply it to my life. Every guest certainly teaches me something about my own grief. Every once in a while, however, I have an interview that I feel impacts me in a way where I will be forever changed. Hearing Cassie repeat the words written by her daughter has done that for me. Cassie's 23 year old daughter, Ella, had an amazing spirit and personality. She was unique and loved by everyone around her. She was artistic and expressive, truly a beautiful soul. What began as a headache and suspected severe sinus infection around Christmastime in 2019 was found to instead be an exceedingly rare cancer that would take her life in a few short months. Only a month or two after the world started shutting down for COVID, Ella took her last breath and died. Ella's death was in April 2020 in Paris, France which made it impossible for her to have a true celebration of life. During COVID, Cassie's American family were not allowed to enter France at all. Everything was put on hold. In some ways, the family's grief was even paused. Finally, two years after Ella's death, the family was able to celebrate her life in a way that could truly honor her. Her family and friends could finally gather together. Cassie called the experience ‘excruciatingly beautiful.' When we as bereaved parents think about our lives now after the deaths of our children, we are so many experiences that can be described as ‘excruciatingly beautiful.' Recently, Andy's life has been honored through two graduation ceremonies and a camp building dedication. When I would mention these events to friends, I would often get a big smile telling me how great it was that they were honoring Andy in that way. I can't argue with that. It certainly is amazing that different people are remembering Andy, but I actually had a hard time with the big smiles and others telling me how happy I must be feeling. As amazing as these things are, and as amazing as Ella's celebration of life certainly was, it was not a happy experience; it was an ‘excruciatingly beautiful' one. I think that phrase helps people to understand just a little bit better. Thank you, Ella, for the gift of that phrase. I know it will change others as it has changed me.
When I found myself sad and lonely only 6 months into caregiving, I didn't realize then that part of me was grieving. I was grieving the old me the old way of life the old world I never would be a part of again. Life for the people around me didn't change, but the world my husband, daughter, and I lived in changed instantly, without warning. Grieving is a process we need to be able to go through as caregivers so we can let go of the old parts of us, the hobby, the goals, and all the things that don't really fit into the life we are living now. Listen to this episode and learn not only how to let go but ways you can grieve and release what really doesn't matter anymore.

How do you grieve what never was? What does it look like when your grief is over a dream rather than a reality? For Megan Smalley, learning to navigate the unseen grief and pain of infertility was difficult and at times, lonely. Megan experienced the whole range of emotions that came through her initial diagnosis of infertility to the arduous, sometimes discouraging path through IVF to the wrestlings that came after three miracle babies. At no point was her journey easy, but within it, God had important lessons and unending comfort to guide her through. And from that, she was able to in turn help others walking a similar path through an online community called The Infertility Sisterhood. In this episode, Megan joins Davey to talk about learning to take difficult seasons step by step, why knowing the truth of God's Word matters in the midst of it and how community can help us along the way in our pain. Whether infertility is part of your story or not, this conversation will teach you how to walk in your own hurt over the loss of a dream as well as how to help others through theirs.

Brandi had a typical childhood: she participated in sports, dance, girl scouts; went on family vacations; and had lots of family get-togethers. But as she got older, she became argumentative and got into a lot of trouble. It wasn't until her sister, Kaylee, was taking a psychology course that she determined that her sister fit the description of someone with bipolar disorder. At first Brandi smoked pot but got mixed up with opioids after this was prescribed after her second pregnancy. She passed away from an overdose at 39 after a life of struggling with addiction. Kaylee advises not to go it alone when dealing with grief, and to join a grief group or go through one-to-one counseling. If you would like to tell your story about an overdose death, please contact Susan Claire at firstname.lastname@example.org http://grievingoverdosedeath.libsyn.com/ Music provided by La Atlántida

On this episode, pastor and author Eric Schumacher joins host Marty Duren in a coversation about the challenges men have grieving miscarriages. Transcript Marty Duren: Welcome to Launch-The GCC Podcast. I'm your host, Marty Duren, director of communications for the Great Commission Collective. We're a global network of churches partnering together to plant churches and strengthen leaders. My guest today on Launch is Eric Schumacher. He's a pastor and author. We're going to be talking about his book, Ours: Biblical Comfort for Men Grieving Miscarriage. This is a timely subject. It's always applicable, whether you're dealing with miscarriage in your own family, or whether you're a pastor and you're dealing with people who are struggling through the aftermath of having had a miscarriage. This is a timely and helpful book. Paul David Tripp says "This book is full of helpful insights and answers, but the best thing it gives you is Jesus." I hope both this book and this conversation are helpful to you. Marty Duren: Welcome back to Launch. As previously mentioned in the intro section, my guest is Eric Schumacher, and he has written a really, really helpful book. If you're a pastor, you possibly have been through this yourself. If not, you definitely have counseled someone who has been through, a couple who's been through miscarriage. The unique thing about Eric's book is its biblical comfort for men grieving miscarriage. This is just recently out, right? Eric Schumacher: Yeah. It releases July 1. Marty Duren: Oh, so it's recently not out. Eric Schumacher: We're recently not out. Marty Duren: We're recording just before it releases. Eric Schumacher: For a limited time only, it's not out. Marty Duren: That's right. So prayerfully by the time you get this, you can pre-order it on your favorite online website. So welcome to Launch, man. It's really great to have you here. Eric Schumacher: Yeah. Thanks, Marty, for having me. I've enjoyed knowing you over Twitter for quite some time. So it's good to put a face and a voice with the account. Marty Duren: Oh, okay. So putting a voice with it means you've never listened to my other podcast, right? Eric Schumacher: Well, whoa, whoa. Yeah. Let's talk about my book, shall we? Marty Duren: Okay. Truth comes out. We're not editing this part either, dude. Hey, for folks who don't know who Eric Schumacher is, take a couple minutes to...you're a pastor, but what else? Eric Schumacher: I'm a husband of Jenny for almost 24 years. So next month we'll celebrate 24 years. Marty Duren: Congrats on that. Eric Schumacher: We have five kids in our home, four teenagers right now. Oldest will be 20 next month. The youngest is 10; four boys and a girl. That keeps life very busy. And my wife, Jenny, is a... She's my better 9/10. She's tremendous. Marty Duren: That's awesome. I can believe that. I can believe that she's 9/10 of the better. Eric Schumacher: Yeah. Although, don't multiply me by nine and think that's all she is. I'm being very generous with myself. Marty Duren: So, you got all these kids. You got a 10-year age range with five kids. Are they at least involved and interested, that like all play soccer one game after another? Or is like one in dance, one in piano, one in soccer, one in archery, that kind of thing? Eric Schumacher: The oldest one's in college, so he's pretty self-sufficient. And the 17-year-old has a really nice girlfriend, and that keeps him busy. And he has a summer job, so I'm thankful for that. The 15-year-old, he is involved in soccer and just started in a robotics competition team, that they went to the world championships in Houston. He was the robot driver for the whole team. Marty Duren: That's cool. Eric Schumacher: He's our outdoorsman. He's always outside doing something. He took over the shop in our garage when we moved to this new-to-us house. And he, unknown to any of us, discovered he had some kind of saw that would cut metal. So he started cutting circular saw blades, strips out of them, and making knives and like a [inaudible 00:04:19], throwing bat-sharpened things that could probably do a lot of harm to somebody. Marty Duren: Do the robots throw those? Eric Schumacher: No, he hasn't figured that out yet. I'm trying not to suggest that idea. Right now his dream is, he says when he turns 18 and graduates high school, he's going to be moving to Alaska and living as a survivalist. And he thinks he's prepared for that because he watches Life Below Zero and Bear Grylls. Marty Duren: Okay. I mean, what could go wrong? Eric Schumacher: I know. Buddy, there's a little bit more- Marty Duren: Has he read Into the Wild? Eric Schumacher: No, he has not. And I'm thinking about showing him that film. Marty Duren: Yes. Eric Schumacher: Buddy, there's a little bit more than knowing how to skin an animal and drink your own urine to living in Alaska. Although he was out at a friend's acreage a year or two ago, and their dog ran up with a rabbit that it had just caught. He was probably 13, pulled his pocket knife out and he skinned the rabbit, gutted it right there, and put her on a spit and built a fire and cooked it over it and ate it. Marty Duren: Wow. He went [inaudible 00:05:27] Castaway in about 10 seconds there, didn't he? Eric Schumacher: Yeah, he did. I'm going to get him a volleyball just to keep him company. Marty Duren: That's awesome. Eric Schumacher: Our daughter's 13. She's wonderful. She's a budding author. She's 50,000 words into a novel she's working on, and it's good. Better than I've written as an adult. Our 10-year-old, he's the sweetest and friendliest of all of our kids. And we're just trying to desperately figure out how to keep him that way. Marty Duren: Yeah, I hear you. I hear you. That's fantastic. Well, let's talk about Ours: Biblical Comfort for Men Grieving Miscarriage. I'm going to open up by saying that my wife and I never went through this, so I don't know how common or uncommon that makes us, and as a pastor, and I was in full-time pastoral ministry for 20-plus years I think, I can barely remember one or two incidences. So I think I'm somewhat of an anomaly that this is not a thing that I dealt with in ministry a lot. Of course, there's the possibility that people didn't even talk about it. You know, it happened in our church and people didn't say anything about it. But you're addressing the men in the story, so the dad-to-be and the unique struggles. What I love about your book is that you relate it to so many things were happening in the life of Jesus. So let's talk about it. First of all, how did you come to write this book? Eric Schumacher: Years ago, for your listeners' sake, my wife and I have experienced four miscarriages. I believe the statistic is one in four pregnancies end in miscarriage. As a pastor, one of the reasons you don't often hear about it is because people don't talk about it. I had written for Risen Motherhood, an article about my experience with miscarriage in order... They asked me to write it in order to help women understand what their husbands are going through. And so a few years back then, Abbey Wedgeworth asked me if I would include a testimony as a father in her book, Held. It's actually a companion volume to ours, but a 31-day resource, journaling resource, with devotions, walking through a Psalm. I got the book, and it's just fantastic. Eric Schumacher: It became immediately my go-to resource on miscarriage. And I just loved everything the Good Book Company did with it. All through our miscarriages, one of the things I talk about in the book is that I just never heard men talk about miscarriage, and I experienced firsthand how unprepared other men in the church were to care for a man walking through miscarriage, and even hospitals, just everywhere. For obvious reasons, miscarriage is thought about as a woman's thing, which it is, because they're the ones that are miscarrying, they're the ones that were pregnant. But every child has a mother and a father, and every mother wants the father to be involved in the pregnancy and wants the father to rejoice over the birth of the child. Eric Schumacher: I don't know who picked the title of the book at the Good Book Company, but that's what the name Ours is all about, is that this is ours. And so I just wrote Carl at the Good Book Company an email and said, "Hey, fantastic work on this volume. It's really good, and you really need to write one. You need to publish one for men, and I want to write it." They were gracious enough to do it, take a risk on it. Marty Duren: Is that how that works? Is that how that works, I just find a book and say "This is a great book and you need to write a companion and I need to write it." Is that how it works? Eric Schumacher: Sometimes, I guess. I don't know. First time I've tried it, but it won't be the last. Marty Duren: Worked for you. What I want to do is read some of the chapter titles and just let you comment, because it's set up with really short chapters. There's 31. So it's a month's worth of brief devotions with some opportunity for reflection. So it's not just, "Hey, I'm going to read this and go to work," it's "I'm going to sit with this a little bit. I'm going to process this and process myself as I process this." Let's hit just a few of the chapter titles, give everybody an idea of what's going on. And then I think this is going to become a go-to for a lot of folks, to be honest with you. Second chapter, Have I Really Lost a Child? What is that? And why is it significant? Eric Schumacher: What you mentioned earlier about incidents from the life of Jesus for your listeners, the book walks through the book of Luke in over 31 days. What I did before I wrote it is, I wrote down questions that are common for people to ask as they're going through miscarriage, and then put them together with the Suffering Servant and how he cared for suffering people. And so I picked Luke. One of the many reasons I picked Luke is because it starts with barrenness with Elizabeth and Zechariah, and then it opens with a chapter dealing with children in the womb. We're in a culture that you and I and everyone listening, we all know this, that there's a lot of debate about abortion right now. And we're in a culture that does not always value life in the womb, or diminishes the value of life in the womb. Eric Schumacher: And miscarriage is an unseen suffering in the sense that, maybe if you've been able to have a sonogram, you've seen the child, but often it's unseen, a very unseen loss. And so you didn't know this child, most often you weren't able to hold the child unless it was far enough along you could, after delivery. And so it's easy to say, was this really a baby? Was this really this? And I love the fact that right there in the first two chapters of Luke, he uses the word [inaudible 00:12:01], which is the word for baby, or child. And he uses it of what leapt Elizabeth's womb and what Mary laid in the manger. And it's every bit as much a child. Marty Duren: Does God Know What I'm Going Through? Eric Schumacher: Yeah. That question. It's easy to look at Jesus and say, "Well, he was never a father. Does he know what I'm going through?" But the main event in the Gospel of Luke, what it's leading up to, is the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God. And that means our God knows what it's like to lose a child, to watch a child die, and he can sympathize. Marty Duren: What Do I Do With My Anger? Eric Schumacher: Miscarriage is one of those situations where I think, as fathers, we feel this right and benevolent desire to protect our wives, protect our wife, and protect our children. And miscarriage is one of those things where it doesn't matter what you do, there's nothing you could have done to protect your wife or your child from this pain and its loss. So anger is a common response to feeling an injustice, to feeling frustrated because what the good thing you want to have happen, you're not able to do, something's frustrated it. So, yeah, I think Jesus offers some good hope there for men who are experiencing anger in response. Marty Duren: You have a chapter on caring for the man caring for his wife. I can't imagine much more of a minefield for a guy, especially for guys, what we think of as the typical guy, who's not greatly in touch with his emotions and doesn't always know how to respond when the wife is deeply in touch with hers. Talk a little bit about the guy who this has happened to, or the pastors ministering to a dude, and he's just like, what do I say to my wife? Eric Schumacher: Yeah. I think you hit the nail on the head. Everyone grieves in different ways and at different times. And that really comes out in miscarriage, because often when they find out about the miscarriage, the man moves into not necessarily fix-it mode, because he can't fix it, but to-do-list mode. And if there's other children, I need to make sure they get to school, I need to run them to soccer practice, I need to make sure meals are covered, I need to go to the pharmacy to pick up medications for her. I'm going to do all the things I can to sort of just bury my emotions in busyness. And there can also be the temptation to think, if he is grieving and feeling emotional about this, to think, well, man, I can't really say anything about that. I can't say that I'm not doing well, because this happened to her. And I don't want to diminish her grief by just sitting on the bed with her and weeping. Eric Schumacher: I tell guys, your wife, you were both there when this child was conceived, and she wanted you to be there when the child was born, and you planned to raise this child together. Don't make her walk through this loss alone. This was always yours together. Somebody else can run the kids around. You have church, family, friends, somebody else can get the meals. Somebody else can do all the things, but you're really the one who needs to be sitting with her and mourning with her. And if you don't feel those feelings right now, just sympathize with hers, and your feelings will come. And sometimes the Lord allows us to grieve at different times so that we can care for each other in those seasons. If the Gospel of Luke is about anything, it's about God taking on flesh and being present with us. Be that with your wife. Marty Duren: So here's the chapter that when I saw it, it really grabbed my attention. Does My Grief Make Me Useless to Jesus? Does My Grief Make Me Useless to Jesus? How did you even come up with that [inaudible 00:16:33]? Eric Schumacher: Depending on what sort of tribe people are in spiritually and all that, you, we can get this mindset that to be useful to Jesus, we always need to be doing something, out there accomplishing something, serving somebody else, these sorts of things. When grief gets to be so intense that all we can do is sit there and cry, we can begin to think, well, now I'm not only a failure to my wife because I can't do all the things, and I'm not only a failure to my children, now I'm a failure to God. Because if I really had faith, I'd be strong enough to get up and get out there and brush this off and go do things. Eric Schumacher: That's not the Jesus we meet in the gospel. He's weeping at Lazarus's tomb, and he's so sorrowful in the Garden of Gethsemane, his soul is sorrowful even to the point of death. And I would add our grief is not useless, it's a form of worship. Because grief is a way of saying, "God, I know you exist. I know that you're good. I know that this situation is wrong in some sense, because the world's broken," and there's no reason to grieve unless you believe those things about God. And so it's an acknowledgement of his goodness and that he's the only one we can turn to. Marty Duren: How Should I Care For My Other Children? Eric Schumacher: Depending on how each of the parents are doing, it can be difficult just to interact with the other children in the midst of grief. But the other thing is, is what can these kids, depending on their ages, understand? And I don't think it's wrong to bring our children into our grief. This is a sibling. They may have known about the pregnancy. It may have been early enough they didn't know about it, but they are going to live in a world that is filled with death and sorrow and brokenness, and this is an opportunity to show them how we face it and hope in Jesus through it. Marty Duren: I don't think you addressed this in the... You don't have a chapter by this name. You might address this, so I'm going to ask you to talk about it a little bit, because it's right in the same narrative. A lot of miscarriages do happen, and you just referenced this, really early on. The mom knows that she's expecting, has probably shared it, probably showed Dad the lines, or the line, whichever way it goes, on the test. And then they may not have told other people. So you mentioned [inaudible 00:19:40] they might not have told anybody yet. Because maybe it's pre a certain amount of weeks and they're going to [inaudible 00:19:45] a certain amount of weeks, then there's a miscarriage, they lose the baby. Marty Duren: Talk to a pastor who's counseling, or a couple who are going through that very scenario, and they're trying to decide who they tell and what they tell and when they tell. Because if they're really grieving, they can't hide the grief. And so they go to church on Sunday or they go to church on Wednesday night or go to some activity related to church, and they're grieving. They can't hide the fact that they're grieving, but they don't just want to come out and say it. Walk through how to address how you share that story. Eric Schumacher: I think it's a really great question. One thing I like to emphasize is that every miscarriage is unique, none of them duplicate entirely, the circumstances stage the pregnancy, all those things. And the people are unique. So all of that needs to be taken into account as you answer that question. I would begin by just sympathizing with them, validating their grief, that it's right that they feel this way. It's a right and good way to feel, and then to ask them, who are the people that know you best, and that you feel like would understand and be safe to share with? They could share with the whole church if they wanted to, or if they wanted to just share with you and the pastoral staff or their small group leaders or their small group, or whoever it might be. Eric Schumacher: I would encourage them, who are the people that are going to understand and care for you? Because particularly, even with an announced pregnancy, you live with that every day. And the people you tell rejoice with you, but they're not preparing a nursery; they're not dreaming about playing football in the backyard; and they're not acquainted with this child in the ways that you are and dreaming about this child the way that you are. So it's very easy for people to hear the news, be sorrowful with you, and then just move on and sort of forget about it, which is tragic. And that can be very hurtful if a church responds like that. And so I think part of what I want to do as a pastor is point them to people who are going to sit with them in the grief and remain with them in the grief and make sure they're cared for after the initial announcement. Marty Duren: Eric Schumacher, your book is Ours: Biblical Comfort for Men Grieving Miscarriage, will be available I think you said July 1st, Eric Schumacher: That's right. Marty Duren: From the Good Book Company. Do you know if they're going to be offering, if a church wanted to buy 20 or 30 or whatever, can they order directly from the company at a rate or [inaudible 00:22:42]? Eric Schumacher: You can. And, in fact, if you're with a church or ministry, the Good Book Company on their website has a ministry partners program, where if you sign up through whatever ministry that you help lead, you can get a free sample of any resource you want, and then I think 40% off for ministry purposes purchases. It sounds self-serving, but I would just encourage every pastor to grab two or three or four or five copies of both Abbey's book, Held, and Ours, and just have them in your study so that you don't have to wait to order it when the miscarriage happens. You can grab a copy of each and head to their home with a meal and just leave it as a gift for them. Marty Duren: That's awesome. Eric [inaudible 00:23:31], hanging out today, man.

Did you know grief changes our brain? As a matter of fact, Mary-Frances shares with me that so do relationships and bonding. I got curious around the whole 'science of grief' last month when I found myself in the thick of it all and wondering 'what's the purpose of this physical, emotional and psychological response to loss. So I found the leader in the field of research around complicated grief, Mary-Frances O'Connor. Her work primarily focuses on trying to tease out the mechanisms that cause this ongoing and severe reaction to loss. In particular, she is curious about the neurobiological, immune, and cardiovascular factors that vary between individual responses to grief. Enjoy!

I recorded this episode 3 days after my birthday. I had been recording daily diary entries of me just unpacking my thoughts and this is one of the earlier entries. In this diary entry, I recognize a friend & our friendship no longer existed in the capacity it once did. I grieved the loss of a really good friend, someone I trusted, loved, confided in, and found real friendship with. I will always respect when someone is honest and truthful with you; yet the loss of a friendship hurts like death, because it is. the death of a friendship. And as they say... truth hurts. What I've learned here is you want to always check in with someone before you emotionally dump or unpack your thoughts with somone. Even if said person has expressed they are open to being a listening ear, you should ALWAYS ask for permission. Some example phrases are: "do you have the emotional space to hear this?" "can I share something with you that may be triggering? "do you have the mental bandwith for me to share something with you?" "you feel like hearing this bullshit?" "can i tell you what I've been going through for real? you cool with me unpacking this with you? Asking for permission is simultaneously protecting you and the other person's mental health. Creating a safe space for unpacking whatever you may share is an important step in the healing process. It also giving the other person the opportunity to check in with themselves, to be sure they are best prepared to listen, hear you, & support you. Thanks for listening...

Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! In this episode, I'm continuing the conversation on postpartum mental health with Dr. Jane Shomof, a Doctor of Clinical Psychology, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and the owner of Bloome, a business specializing in Maternal Mental Health. In our talk, we discuss the unmet expectations of motherhood and the grieving that women experience during this time of transition. She shares about her own story, the way she's using Bloome to help women feel validated and prevent mental health disorders, as well as her tips for new moms preparing for postpartum.

Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut as families and friends begin to say goodbye to the victims of the Uvalde massacre. Joy and her guests also question why it took 78 minutes to clear the scene of the mass shooting at the Texas elementary school, which left 19 children and two teachers dead. Grieving parents are devastated and the larger community, angered by the inaction, are demanding answers. Plus, the first verdict from special prosecutor John Durham's probe into the origins of the investigation into the former president's ties to Russia ended in defeat. A legal expert brings you the latest. Finally, Joy shares her thoughts on Korean pop mega stars BTS joining the White House daily press briefing on Tuesday to make remarks, with the help of a translator, about Asian inclusion and the ongoing crisis of attacks against Asian-Americans. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
