Miscarriage, pregnancy loss, still births, and infant loss are the hardest experiences any mother has to endure. Many of us grasp at straws trying to find something to pull us out of the sinking ship that is our grief. We often feel overwhelmed, not knowing who to turn to to talk about our losses or where to find comfort. Below are some resources for women of faith who want to turn to God for help in healing.
Lullaby of Hope (LOH) was created by a group of loss mothers who, through their faith, found comfort in talking to each other and in Jesus. They wanted to give mothers just like them something to turn to when they feel lost and helpless. Their non-profit ministry and charity creates personalized gift boxes for mothers who are experiencing infertility, pregnancy loss or still births, or infant loss.
LOH offers a resource to mothers who are struggling through infertility, pregnancy loss, still births, and infant loss. Their boxes contain religious devotionals, uplifting scripture, and carefully curated items that bring hope to a mother who is struggling. They offer reminders that although they are hurting that God is with them, holding them and protecting them even though they are grieving.
The boxes from LOH are categorized in infertility, pregnancy loss and still births, and infant loss. Each of these boxes has devotionals, scriptures, and items that pertain to a mother’s experience, helping her to use her faith to find healing, encouragement, and comfort.
Lullaby of Hope is perfect for faith-filled women who want to give comfort to those in pain and searching for Jesus. You can gift a box to a friend or loved one in need or donate a box to someone in the loss community.
