Honest and Important
I love the way this podcast has started. It’s bold to talk about something so many people shy away from. Hearing stories that are honest and are not sugar coated help us understand our own grief and learn how to be with people who are in grief. Thank you for this podcast.
Refreshing and Real
As Caleb says in one of the opening episodes, death is like sex. We need to talk about it, but it’s really really awkward and therefore we do our best to avoid it. These stories and conversations are the perfect blend of candid experience, open emotion, and humor. Highly recommended.
I just finished listening to A Good Death and I am still in tears. What a beautiful story. I am going through the same situation and this brought so much comfort to me. My granny is 92 years old and is close to death. My prayer is that her last few days can be as lovely as the precious lady in this story. What a wonderful hope we have in Jesus! Thank you!!
