We have the overall belief that life expectancy increases with each new decade, but that wasn’t the case in 19th century America. From 1790 to 1860, the average person lived eight years less. This was due to low infant mortality and illnesses few people, even the most educated, understood.
How did people back then cope with such loss? How did they come to terms with the ever-presence of death? My podcast this week tells the story. You can listen at Anchor.fm/rebeccapricejanney
A lot of you are dealing with loss in this most trying of years, and I pray this podcast will help you look up, to the Source of life here, and hereafter.
