Why is Daddy Crying?

My wife, Robyn, and I founded Heartfelt Ministries after our daughter Lindsay Ruth, who was eight months pregnant with our first grandchild, was hit head-on by a man on heroin, cocaine and cannabis. She and her child were both killed instantly. This accident occurred on Sept. 11, 2001. Robyn and I and two of our children were behind her returning from a prayer vigil for our nation and the families affected by the terrorist attacks.

In this seminar, Robyn and I share our story of what we have learned from the death of our daughter Lindsay Ruth.  We are Christians and have decided to write a book about God's ministry to us in our deep sorrow. We feel a certain responsibility to share our story of grace with others who are grieving. 

 We talk about suffering and glory themes in the Bible, the recovery process and the difference between grief and mental illness. 

Time- Anywhere from an hour to three hours.
We are missionaries to a mentally ill people group as well as those who are in grief. A Scriptural basis for our ministry is 2 Corinthians 1:3-11.
