Whether you are walking through infertility, miscarriage, infant loss or you are here because you love someone who is walking through that kind of grief — the truth and wisdom shared in this episode will undoubtedly leave you changed.
Listen in as my friend Gina Zeidler gives the most honest, tender and truth-filled interview. Gina is a wife, a mama, and an amazing photographer — she is also a woman who has walked through years of infertility and two miscarriages. Her honesty about how she has grappled to believe that God is good amidst such pain and loss offers freedom to the woman who is fighting to believe in His goodness today. Her honesty about what she wishes people on the outside knew about infertility and baby loss is tangibly helpful for those who are desperately trying to help a grieving friend. Gina’s vulnerability and candid wise words are filled with such hope that I promise this interview will leave you different — whether its the way you give yourself the freedom to ask for help when you’re hurting or the freedom to talk to God honestly or the freedom to realize, maybe for the first time, that God will bring about healing, that you will have joy again. Gina’s story isn’t wrapped up with a tidy bow and yet she speaks with joy and hope. I am sure that because of this, no matter where you are in this grief journey, this episode is sure to bless you.

In Gina’s final words to the listeners she encourages women who are grieving to find community. Find women who understand what this pain feels like. Women who can say “I know” and really mean it.
