After the death of their oldest daughter, Laura Diehl, along with her husband, Dave, founded Grieving Parents Sharing Hope (GPS Hope) and travel full time in their Hope Mobile (a 38-foot motor home) providing support and resources to grieving parents on their difficult journey, including local weekend retreats. Laura hosts the weekly Grieving Parents Sharing Hope podcast and is also a singer and national speaker. She has written several books, including the multiple award winning When Tragedy Strikes: Rebuilding Your Life with Hope and Healing After the Death of Your Child (Morgan James Publishing, New York).

Laura’s featured book is entitled When Tragedy Strikes: Rebuilding Your Life with Hope and Healing after the Death of Your Child


After the death of a child, there is no closure. It is like learning how to live with an amputation—you are forever changed and need to learn how to live a new “normal.” There can be a feeling of desperation to find someone farther ahead on the path who can understand the crushing pain that makes you feel like you can’t even breathe at times.

Laura Diehl was plunged into that place with the death of her daughter, and meets the deep need to connect with others who have experienced what cannot be put into words. “When Tragedy Strikes”  is the raw account of her journey from deep darkness back into light and life, extending a hand of hope to those traveling on the path behind her, who need to rebuild their lives after the death of a child.

… So kill me God! Do it now, please!…

Somewhere I had heard or read the words, “Spiritual blessings come wrapped in trials.”  I wrote a note saying: the loss of a child is an awfully deep trial to wrap a blessing in! God’s unexpected answer followed: I know, because my Son died, and it was wrapped in the blessing of you!
