While We're Waiting - Hope After Child Loss

A Story of Handprints and Daffodils - Celeste Helcel

Episode notes

I’m excited today to introduce you to my friend Celeste Helcel, who has so much wisdom to share after three decades of missing her son Klint.  When Klint went to Heaven in 1991, support systems for bereaved parents really did not exist.  There were no cell phones, no internet, no Facebook groups for grieving parents, and certainly no podcasts.  The handwritten notes and cards she received during those early years were a lifeline to her and helped her realize she was not alone.  In time, she learned that God comforted her, not to make her comfortable, but to make her a comforter, and she certainly is that. Sit back and listen in for some words of wisdom and encouragement today.
