  • When God called to Adam, “Where are you,” he replied, ‘I hid. I was afraid.’ Genesis 3:10

    Is fear causing you to hide from somebody? A boss? A husband or wife? A touchy co-worker? A strong-willed child?

    When God called to Adam, “Where are you,” he replied “I hid. I was afraid.” And we’ve all been hiding ever since.

  • The birth of a child is one of life’s greatest joys. But when a child dies by miscarriage, stillbirth, or as a newborn infant, the parents and family are often expected to respond as if the loss is less painful — and has less meaning — than the death of an older child, or of an adult. It can be upsetting when friends and relatives say things such as, “You can always have another baby.”
