TV Journalist Faces the Tragic Murder of Her Daughter Through Faith in God

Michelle Hord thought she had the perfect life and career. A producer for America’s Most Wanted and ABC’s Good Morning America, she was on a trajectory of certain success. Even a wedding in her late 30’s seemed like a fairytale, which later welcomed a beautiful little girl named Gabrielle. But her dream marriage turned into a nightmare when the man she thought was her soul mate, became the source of strife and discontent. An acrimonious separation finally ended in divorce when her husband grudgingly signed the papers. But that same day, he went back to his home and killed seven-year-old Gabrielle and attempted to kill himself. Michelle’s grief and trauma so great, her only recourse was to cry out to God. The verse that gave her strength was from the book of Job, “Though he slay me, YET will I trust him.” It is what happens after the “Yet” that Michelle is living in now. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, Michelle Hord talks about her book, “The Other Side of Yet: Finding Light in the Midst of Darkness,” that tells her story of heartache and sorrow, but also of strength and healing.
