In honor of Father’s Day this past Sunday, I wanted to offer encouragement for the fathers who have lost a child. It is possible to lead your family through the hardest thing you may ever experience—the loss of a child. The movie, Courageous, may be fictional, but I think whoever wrote it must have experienced grief and loss at some point because the main characters actions are so realistic.

I won’t lie, you’re going to need tissues. But it’s worth it for the hope that healing can be found. There are men who want to lead their family in Christ honoring ways.

I know the movie is older, and I don’t receive any commission or anything for recommending it. I just feel strongly that it could be helpful as families navigate the difficult grief road to see positive examples that it can be done. As a bonus, they’ve also created a discussion guide to accompany the movie.

Let me know what you think if you watch it. I’d love to hear!
