The Real Grief- Real Healing podcast offers you the opportunity to hear from real people about their life altering experiences and what steps they took and are taking to find healing.
I know real grief. The pain of losing my child and father is with me, always. The pain has lessened over the 6 years since their deaths…and it can sneak its way into my soul as a reminder of the immense love I hold for both of them.
I know real healing. I have learned to belly laugh and find joy in the life I am living. Frequently, I am belly laughing through tears while sadness and joy hold hands.
There are many ways for each of us to heal...join me as we explore real grief and real healing.
Why listen to me?
In episode 29, titled “How It Came To Be”, I introduce you to my faithful journey of courageous kindness after the trauma and grief of domestic terrorism. If it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone. When you read my story I pray you find the inspiration needed to make changes in your life which will create a positive ripple for yourself and others. Healing a Shattered Soul is now available for pre order.
Episode 28: When you’re looking for an opportunity to increase your kindness take a look at SevenDays® Make a Ripple, Change the World! Life can be more fun when you connect the people who weave the fabric of your existence, together. A large part of my healing journey, the process I call, ‘finding my onward’ was created when the Faith Always Wins Foundation produced its first annual, SevenDays® in 2015. This April, you and literally thousands of other humans, can join us virtually for our seventh annual, SevenDays® Make a Ripple, Change the World. What is YOUR ONWARD?
Episode 27: In Part Two of my conversation with Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish, “Wringing Positivity From Anger to Leave a Legacy of Kindness”, you will hear a theme that resonates in many of my interviewees. They are hurting and from their pain a path onward is created. It is their path onward, their resilience that will leave a legacy of kindness for generations to come. Friends, as you listen, I ask you to contemplate what actions you take daily in order to leave a positive legacy for generations behind you.
Episode 26: I was introduced to Izzeldin Abuelaish, MD in November 2019. His book “I Shall Not Hate; A Gaza Doctor’s Journey” outlines the three tragic murders of Besan, Maya, and Aya, three of Izzeldin’s daughters and his niece, Noor, by an Israeli tank in Gaza on January 16, 2009. Izzeldin is Palestinian. His book is heart wrenching and detailed as he takes us through his childhood to the trials of medical school, all while living life as a refugee. Episode 26 is only part one of a two part series. We had much to discuss and still do. I was left wanting for more and you will be, as well. Enjoy “Take the Challenge and Transform it to Life” and share how you are inspired after listening to Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish!
Episode 025. Grief, tragedy, trauma, anger, depression…these are all tough concepts to face day to day. And yet, some of us do face them more than others. I realized as I crept out of my own daily sorrow that I was building a palette of joy from which to work.
My aim in this episode is to offer you a few colors for your own palette. “What Constitutes Your Palette of Joy?”, dropping exactly one month post Capitol insurrection, I touch on exercise, my love of Jeff Hanson the person and his art and remind us all about the importance of Kindergarten.
