Depth Podcast Episode 43: You’ll Find Me At The Ocean — Martha Black
Have you ever walked through something hard and seen God take it and use it for good? Have you ever walked through a heartbreak and then years later helped someone else through that same exact heartbreak?
This week on the Depth Podcast, Martha Black shares with us her new children’s book: *You’ll Find Me At The Ocean: A Journey of Grief Through the Eyes of a Child. Sadly, Martha lost her mother to cancer. Through this book, she is taking her greatest heartbreak and turning it into her greatest ministry by helping others who are walking through grief.
Martha vulnerably shares about the loss of her mother along with practical examples of what helped her through the grief. She also shares some wonderful ways we can honor our loved ones on the special days like birthdays and anniversaries as well as how we can come alongside and support those grieving on those hard days.
I think that is why it is so special that this podcast episode is releasing on the birthday of Martha’s mother. What a wonderful way to honor her life and remember her legacy. Friend, you do not want to miss this beautiful story of how a young girl in the middle of her grief finds God’s faithfulness in addition to memories of her mother at the ocean!

Martha Black is wife, mother, elementary teacher, blogger, author, and speaker. She and her husband, Jeff, reside in Arkansas. Together, they have a brilliant and kind teenage son, Isaiah. In 2019, Martha began blogging on Facebook (Martha Black, Christian Blogger for Butterflies and Daisies), and just a few months later, God gave her the words to her first published book, *You’ll Find Me At The Ocean A Journey of Grief Through the Eyes of a Child. Supporting those who are grieving is something that she is very passionate about. In December 2015, she lost her best friend, biggest cheerleader, number one friend…my Mama…to cancer. She was only 58, and Martha was 34 years old and left without a mother. Her Mama loved butterflies and daisies, so the name of her blog is just a small way that she could honor her.
Not long after writing this book, God led Martha to begin a private group on Facebook, Martha Black Ministries: Finding Peace After The Pain. After suffering such a huge loss, she had both discovered what had helped as she grieved and what did not. She desires to offer what she has learned (and continue to learn) about both the grieving process, and what God’s Word teaches us that gives us hope and peace.
It is Martha Black’s hope and prayer that what you read on her accounts blesses you and encourages you in The Lord. Some days, she focuses on the topic of grief. There are days she shares what God is teaching her in life and in the world. Other days, she focuses simply on Scripture. Regardless of what Martha shares, it is her prayer that it encourages her readers and gives them a hope that can only be found in God.
