For a few very hard years this word was my mantra.
The word means
-undismayed; not discouraged; not forced to abandon purpose or effort
-undiminished in courage or valor; not giving way to fear
But the truth is, I was often dismayed by everything that had taken place, and I did battle discouragement. I battled fear and doubts. I hurt and was angry, and sometimes "undaunted" sounded more like a mockery than a mantra, and I was determined to be real about all of it in these posts, thus the name, Undaunted Reality. More than that, though, I was determined to live undaunted, not because I'm so great or strong, but because my God is, and no matter what this world looks like, He is the only reality that matters.
I pray I live the reality of Him beautifully undaunted.

The Missing Answer--When A Baby is Lost, Teach Us

In my last post, I offered my "wisdom" on how to love someone who has lost a baby. I have never lost a child, so I was offering what I've learned from parents who have taken time to share their hearts with me. But we need more. We need a light on the path, not the blind leading the blind hoping we won't step on anyone while fumbling through.

Moms and Dads,

Please, we don't know what to say or do. We are walking in the dark. If you've suffered this loss, will you be a light to our paths? Will you share hearts with us?

What can we say or do or NOT say or do to help?

What do need us to be that we may walk with you through the loss and through the healing?

We want to walk with you. Will you please be courageous and teach us how?

You can leave comments or email me via my profile.

Thank you for sharing healing insight.

With deepest heart gratitude,
