A memoir on how the Catholic Sacraments healed Kelly Breaux from the grief of child loss.
Kelly and her husband Ryan were given a cross that no parent should have to carry . . . watching two of their children die before their very eyes. For years, Kelly battled numbness, despair, and anger, repeatedly asking God “why?”
Though Catholic, she avoided attending Mass where she was haunted by images of the funerals, by other little children who resembled her own children, by people looking at her with sympathetic eyes or asking her questions she didn’t want to answer.
Until one night when God visited Kelly in a dream and gave her the answer she’d been asking of Him. This dream punctured the ice of grief that Kelly had been trapped under and she felt a deep longing for intimacy with God.
Through the sacraments of the Catholic Church, God has given Kelly a way to turn her grief into a mission of love and healing.
