Guests: Walt and Barb Larimore, Russ and June Gordon
When couples experience the profound sense of pain and loss from a miscarriage, well-intentioned family members and friends can say hurtful things. But Dr. Walt and Barb Larimore, along with Russ and June Gordon, who have suffered a total of six miscarriages between them, urge those who wish to console others to simply say, "I am so sorry! God cares. And I love you." They share with host Dr. James Dobson that couples should name the lost baby, figuratively bury their child, and allow themselves time to heal.
Couples who experience the pain and trauma of a miscarriage may at times wonder if God might be punishing them for some previous sin. In this Part 2 conversation, Dr. Walt and Barb Larimore, along with Russ and June Gordon—who between the four of them have suffered six miscarriages—remind us that God is with us and He cares. Psalm 34:18 says, "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." The Larimores and Gordons also urge the church "to mourn with those who mourn," as Romans 12:15 proclaims.
