    Sunlight in December with Kristin Hernandez

    Sunlight in December with Kristin Hernandez

    If God is good, why is there so much suffering in the world? If God is good, why did my babies die?
    Today we're chatting all things Sunlight in December: A Mother's Story of Finding the Goodness of God in the Storm of Grief with our very own Kristin Hernandez. It's been one month since the book launch, and we're having a conversation about the entire book writing process- from the idea for the book, to challenges and discoveries made while writing it, to where Kristin hopes things will go from here.
    If you, or someone you're close to, has walked through infertility, miscarriages, and/or the loss of an infant, you'll want to keep a copy of this powerful memoir about death, doubt, and hope; you'll also want to tune into today's episode to discover more about Kristin's heart for the book, and stay for a fun book-themed lightening round to close things out!

Christ-centered hope after pregnancy loss

After losing my daughter stillborn at 24 weeks, I have found so much comfort in the hope of Heaven and my faith in Jesus. I am so grateful that I met Kristin and that she has this Gospel-focused podcast available for grieving moms. 💖

So glad I found this podcast

I love listening to this podcast. As a mom who lost her baby at 17 weeks pregnant not too long ago, sometimes I find myself saying “yes, exactly” because I resonate so much with the conversation. I really love the topics discussed and hard questions they tackle as well.

Exactly What My Heart Needs

This podcast has been exactly what my heart needs during this time of recovering from two consecutive pregnancy losses. These women speak first hand into my sorrow and point me back to Jesus. I love how they pray before each episode and constantly point back to the gospel. They truly know where our hope is found. Love them so much!
