016 A Book Ambre Hates and Better Options

A Theology of Suffering, Anxiety, and Grieving Well

Episode Content Considerations:

  • Miscarriage is discussed.

  • At the end of the episode we dismiss any kids who have been listening along and Ambre recounts a story from a tv episode that includes brief references to murder, overdose, drug addiction, and infant loss, while addressing the dangers of avoiding processing one’s grief
