When a family suffers a loss of a loved one, everyone struggles with grief. Unfortunately sometimes the children unintentionally take a back seat in this process. Life has changed drastically. Everyone is in the self-survival mode. Business details demand immediate attention. School and work continue and each person is expected to do the same. Camp Agape is a bereavement camp for children, ages 7 through 12. Kim Turk founded this camp 17 years ago. It was the first Christian-based nondenominational…..

I spent almost a week at Camp Agape, a bereavement camp for children, which was held at Buckner Camp in Burnet, Texas. I served as a counselor for nine brokenhearted girls, ages 9-12 years old. (The camp accommodates children 6-12 years old and we had 34 boys and girls.) It was a special time for God to use His people to minister to His precious hurting children.

When we cry out to God, we want here-and-now answers to our prayers. When we don’t think situations are changing, then we feel rejected by God or that he is punishing us. God sees the process of waiting and healing differently than we do. Maybe he sees our difficult relationships as a process that involves continuously submitting, obeying, trusting, and relying on him. Sometimes the process is brief. Sometimes it takes years and years for the process to culminate and…..

God healed my relationship with my mother in a way that I would have never expected. When we ask God for something, we generally have an idea of what, when, where, and how we want him to bless us.  In other words, we have a picture of the package and how it will serve our needs. Fortunately, God hears our requests, and then he does things his way. In Isaiah 55:8 he clearly states, “For my thoughts are not your…..
