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 Feel and 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.
Christina Fox is a counselor, retreat speaker, writer, and author of several books including ‘Tell God How You Feel: Helping Kids with Hard Emotions’ and ‘A Heart Set Free: A Journey to Hope Through the Psalms of Lament’. You can find her at www.christinafox.com.
In a real, but not overly heavy way, this sweet story will help give words to a child’s big emotions after the death of a loved one – all while pointing them to the comfort of Jesus.
Co–author of ‘Hope When It Hurts’ and ‘Together Through the Storms’
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.
