"Grandma-What Is a Soul?" By Rev. Karen Herrick, Ph.D
“Grandma, I don’t like to talk about this very often but I don’t want you to die,” young Duncan blurts out one day while riding in the car. And, rather than dismiss her grandson’s comment or try to gloss over its seriousness, Grandma engages with Duncan’s concern.
What ensues is a beautiful conversation about the human soul, death, heaven, and guardian angels that will bring light and comfort to a hard topic—for adults, as well as children. Inspired by a conversation with her own grandson, author Rev. Karen E. Herrick, PhD, simplifies these complex notions into vivid examples that will engage children’s imaginations.
