How I Almost Missed Out
8/23/2019 7:45:00 PM by: Dee Lundgren MA LPC

 

Several months ago, Focus on the Family (a large Christian ministry) reached out to their network counselors asking for ideas for articles.

 

I do what I normally do when I’m busy—I ignore anything else that would make me busier. But then I was talking with a writer friend. I casually mentioned the e-mail from Focus. I quickly added that due to my full counseling practice and blogging, I wasn’t planning on responding to the e-mail.

 

 “Dee, it’s Focus on the Family,” Patricia said. I repeated my answer that I was too busy. Once again Patricia said, “Dee, it’s Focus on the Family!”

 

Due to my friend’s prompting I submitted two article ideas. Focus on the Family choose the following. Now I’m an official published author.

 

I wonder how many times we miss out on what God has for us because we think we are too busy.

 

Here is my story of hope after losing our son to suicide. Your Marriage Can Survive the Loss of a Child to Suicide

***Many families that are affected by suicide.  I’d appreciate if you share this article on social media or with a friend who needs to hear the message.

Dee, Thank you for sharing your heart. I can relate to your story in that my brother took his own life in July 0f 2009 (on our mom's birthday) following her death in January of 2009. Still a daily journey through the grief process. For me support groups are still a blessing. God bless you.

So sad that your family has been affected with suicide. It's a tough journey but glad you are walking through it.
