Frequently Asked Questions, Answers, and Resources

   I have been blessed with hundreds of emails from all over the world... seeking more. Some are trying to grieve, others are searching for faith, and some are trying to figure out how to be a friend for someone in pain.  Another large group has talked about a pain that they cannot seem to heal.
   With these emails I have realized that we all have our struggles.  We all feel alone or wondering where to turn with the hard times ahead.
     Here are some resources that I want to share with anyone who is looking for more. Helps that focus on specific topics that can encourage and give insight to help those who are still searching for light on the problems they face.
   Some of these resources I have asked to join in my 'journey of moments', and others are people who have been working for years helping others through their hard times.
    I hope you can find answers to the many wonderful, but also heart breaking questions that I read every day.  I cannot help each person individually, but I hope as you seek answers that you will find them.  I pray, every day, that God will bless all of the broken roads that we travel.

Standing Strong Together (a child's view on losing a loved one) Our twins have been begging me for months to let them start their own journal of the journey they had to face when they found out that Emmett died. A few weeks ago, when sitting in the Woman's broadcast at General Conference, they asked again and I said yes. So began their blog. For anyone who has lost a parent, or is helping a child grieve the loss of a parent or loved one. Bostyn and Bailey will be sharing their story here.

The Moments We Mend (grief and healing) will be knowledge and lessons by my cousin Tiffanie Long.  She spent the summer after Emmett died with us, and has since come to seek her education focusing on the grieving process and the impact that tragedy has on our lives. She will be working with families, and especially children, that are suffering from grief. I have asked her to write, for us, some of the knowledge that she has learned through working with my children, and since working with others, to find peace through their pain. For all of you who have contacted me, seeking more about grief.
