How to Prepare Your Child for a Funeral

Death is a natural part of life and in the event that someone in your life passes away, you and your family will attend a funeral. As adults, we know what to expect at one but for children, it is a whole new territory. When A was about 2 years old, my maternal grandmother passed away and we attended the funeral. We didn’t really explain anything about death to A at that time because she was too young and didn’t really understand what was going on.

However, about two weeks ago, my father-in-law passed away. He had been sick for over 10 years but it was still sudden and happened so quickly. We are still coping with the loss but as Christians, we take comfort in the fact that he is in heaven and that there is no more pain or suffering. (1 Corinthians 15:42-53)

As adults dealing with grief, we can surround ourselves with friends and other family members to find comfort and find the support we need during such a difficult time. We can send the family a sympathy gift (like the ones at https://www.gifttree.com/v3/sympathy/gift-baskets) to show them that we are thinking about them in this tough time. But what about children- especially young children? First of all, they don’t know what to expect at a funeral. Second, they might not even know how to express their emotions about the situation. Third, they will probably have a lot of questions.

5 Lessons in Marriage for the Perfectly Imperfect

Today is our 8 year wedding anniversary. I honestly can not believe that it’s already been 8 years! My husband and I went to dinner last night at Scott Conant’s new restaurant The Ponte to celebrate because the rest of the week is too hectic with some family and work obligations. It was absolutely amazing! If you’re ever in the LA area, you should definitely try it out.

During dinner, it was nice to just spend time chatting. I know everyone says this about their husbands and significant others, but I really believe that my husband is the perfect person for me. I won’t go into the sappy details about why I believe it but I just do. But what I do what to share with you are some lessons I’ve learned and realized in the past 8 years.

Capturing Lasting Memories with Shutterfly

Ask any of my friends and they will tell you that I was the unofficial photo-historian of our group growing up. There was rarely a moment when I wouldn’t have a camera with me (even back when it was all film!) Friends would joke that there would be barely any pictures if I wasn’t there. It was only natural that as I grew older, I would carry that love of taking pictures and capturing memories into adulthood. Now as a mom, I am constantly taking pictures of our family and of my daughter to freeze that moment in time.

What’s a person like me supposed to do with all those pictures? I’m ashamed to admit that I have thousands and thousands of pictures backed up on my cloud drive and a little overwhelmed with where to start organizing them. I love the look of photo books¬†and printing out pictures but where do I even start?
