cradled in hope
hosted by ashley Opliger
Jesus cradles us in hope as He cradles our babies in Heaven.
What if the hope of Heaven had the power to heal your heart after the loss of your baby?
Miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss are heartbreaking experiences that no mother should ever have to endure. Drowning in sadness, you cry out in pain, "God, where are You? Why did You let my baby die?"
You feel abandoned by Him and question His goodness. How will you ever live without your precious baby? Will you ever see him or her again?
Ashley Opliger asked these same questions when her daughter, Bridget, was born into Heaven at 24 weeks in her first pregnancy.
In a crisis of faith, Ashley chose to surrender her suffering and allow God to heal her heart. She found purpose in her pain when she started Bridget's Cradles, a nonprofit that now comforts thousands of grieving families across the country.
Through her own story of heartbreak, Ashley will guide you on a journey to trust God's promise to restore your joy, use your grief for good, and spend eternity with your baby in Heaven.
Podcast episodes feature hope-filled messages, stories, and guest interviews. Grieving mothers will be reminded that though we may grieve, we do not grieve without hope!
New episodes release on the 1st of the month along with a bonus episode in October.
