Support for Suicide Survivors with Brandy Lidbeck

Brandy is a girl who experienced the unthinkable as a 10-year-old girl.  She has labored on behalf of the loved ones of the roughly 117 people who die by suicide each day in the United States.  She wrote the resource she wished she had when her mom died.  Her story is hard but God has proven himself to be a Healer in the midst of so many broken hearts.

What we chat about:

  • The shame encountered by suicide survivors
  • The unique grief and trauma of loved ones who are left behind
  • Some of the typical questions asked by survivors and how she helps them know they are not alone

Did you know today our kids are consuming more media than ever before? – On average more than 5 hours a day!  For most kids, this means watching shows where God doesn’t even show up in them at all! As a mom, I want my kids to enjoy shows and movies, but I also want those things to point them to Jesus!  Which is why I’m excited to tell you about JellyTelly.
