This week’s guest is a Christian radio colleague who has suffered the tragedy of the death of a child in a home accident. JJ Jasper (click) is a morning on-air personality with American Family Radio. When a dune buggy, driven by JJ on the family farm overturned, 5 year old Cooper died from his injuries. In that moment JJ looked into his son’s eyes and begged God to spare Cooper’s life and take his instead.
As you listen to JJ’s story on FIRST PERSON, you’ll hear a story of great hope in the midst of the despair. It demonstrates how a strong Christian family deals with shock, loss, and grief from a biblical perspective.
