Holding On To Love After You've Lost a Baby

The 5 Love Languages® for Grieving Parents - By Dr. Gary Chapman and Candy McVicar

Losing a child is among the most tragic experiences one can face. The crushing grief puts immense strain on the marriage, family relationships, and friendships that few can understand. That’s why this book was written. In it Candy McVicar, a grieving mom who leads a ministry for grieving parents, and Dr. Gary Chapman, relationship expert and author of The 5 Love Languages®, team up to help couples who are facing the unimaginable.

They’ll teach you how to:

  • Cope with the complex feelings that come with the grief process
  • Understand your spouse’s unique grieving needs and support him/her
  • Use the five love languages through grief

There is nothing that can make the pain of losing a child go away, but healing is possible with intentional hearts and the right resources.
