Suicide Awareness Week is September 10-16, 2023. If you are struggling with thoughts of suicide or know of someone who is, please call 988.

Grieving loss by suicide is long, complicated, and has a lot of layers. Moms will carry the grief for their children in the early years and then watch them wrestle through the pain as they grow into an understanding of the choice that was made by their dad. According to Ephesians 6:12, the battle is spiritual, and at the root of suicide is Satan the one who seeks to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10).

In this episode, Lori shares her experience discussing

  • Grieving death by suicide
  • Understanding Satan’s schemes against us
  • The importance of telling children the truth as they grow and teaching them about spiritual warfare
  • Modeling forgiveness
  • Take the mention of thoughts of suicide seriously
