I ran across a great article at www.crosswalk.com (Crosswalk) today. In view of a tough week for our country including but not limited to the shooting at Virginia Tech, the shooting at NASA, and the crashing of a Blue Devil Jet I think it is timely. It is called, "Learning Through Loss" by Dena Wood.
Here is the link: http://www.crosswalk.com/homeschool/11538615/ .
It is hard to teach our child and help them through loss. It is hard to see my children hurting. I tend to want to gloss it over and not deal with it. But, outside of teaching them the gospel of faith in Jesus Christ, it is one of the most important lessons we NEED to teach them. I hope this article encourages you as much as it did me.
