We all know that loss is the “great big sad” of life. Grief is a journey we all take in life. How do parents and caregivers help children navigate grief? The Great Big Sad follows familiar siblings Josh and Mia (from Tell God How You Feeland God Hears Your Heart) as they face the death of their beloved grandmother. It is a discipleship tool for parents and caregivers in helping children learn that people grieve in different ways, how to talk about grief, ways to honor and remember a loved one, and how Jesus knows and understands their tears.
Grieving the loss of a loved one is hard for everyone. But it can be especially confusing for children. Christina Fox has written a story that will help kids with the awkwardness of sadness, and assure them of the hope of Resurrection.
