The Comfort Booklet was written by families who have lost a child or have a child with a serious illness, who have been comforted by our Lord Jesus Christ, and with that comfort desire to comfort others through Christ. They have graciously shared their hearts.
Please look for a message from the Booklet on our social media every Tuesday.
May God comfort you…
