October is PAIL month, and this episode is for anyone who's lost a pregnancy or baby, or knows someone who did. One in four pregnancies ends in loss, so the chances are that you have encountered this somewhere along the journey.
Our guest Kelly Gerken is one of those people who you just feel grateful to call a friend, especially if you've lost a pregnancy or baby. Yeah, she's got a big heart and seemingly endless energy, which she openly admits is not really the case. She is affectionately known as the "Grace Rebel" and is fueled by her faith every single day as she assists families in welcoming and saying goodbye to their babies.
Kelly is the author of the book "Sufficient Grace" and the founder of Sufficient Grace Ministries, serving thousands of grieving families worldwide since 2004. she is the mother of five children, three who dance in heaven, and two who fill her days with boyish antics on Earth. Kelly is a featured speaker at hospitals, churches, women's groups, and a leader of educational seminars for hospital staff and caregivers. She is also a certified SGM Birth & Bereavement Doula, building a comprehensive perinatal hospice birth and bereavement program to support grieving families. Kelly lives with her husband and sons in Northwest Ohio.
