When Life Changes Forever {Nuggets of Hope} (Day 17- Hope Against Hope)

On the blog this week, I have shared the death of my precious daughter, Reese Madison.  Writing this story has been difficult for both my husband and I as it has involved recalling every detail of her two days here on earth.  Of experiencing her death.  I have never experienced anything so difficult.

Yet, often on our journey, we are allowed to take our eyes off ourselves and mourn with others who are hurting too.  Pain has the ability to connect and unite us with others who not only empathize, but truly understand our pain.  Although, the why behind the pain may be different, pain is pain nonetheless.

I ran across this video and knew immediately it would be fitting to share on this Saturday's Nuggets of Hope.  I am amazed at her strength, her love for Jesus.  Surely, this can only be through the grace of God.

I hope you are blessed by this friends.  I hope it encourages you no matter where you are on your journey. I hope you realize how much God loves you.  He is so much bigger than our pain. 

We're continuing to discuss hope against hope.  Because sometimes everything stands against it.  I hope you'll hang in there with me!

This is Day 17 of a 31 day series of “Hope Against Hope”. To read all of the posts in this series, click here. To read what several other bloggers are writing for the month of October, click here



  1. My heart hurts for your loss. I can only imagine what you are going through. The only way to go through this is God. I lost my mom this year to breast cancer and God is the main way I'm able to keep smiling.

    1. Oh dear I can't even begin to tell you how true your words are! God is the only way! Our baby girl died in 2008 and there was a time I didn't think I would ever smile again..but God! I pray for strength and grace to endure the pain of your loss. I'm sure you have beautiful memories of your mom that also brings a smile to your face! Thank you so much for reading.
