Ep1. Finding Restoration in the Brokenness

Welcome to the very first episode of the From Grief to Gold Podcast. If you’re here you’ve reached the show notes! Episode one I wanted to focus on transparency. I share about my backstory from joining the military right out of high school, to an unplanned pregnancy, all the way to becoming a widow by the age of 25.

I wanted to showcase the different ways that grief can show up in our lives, and that it isn’t just the death of someone we care for. Grief can be losing the version of a future we thought we would have. It can show up in career changes, or unexpected life circumstances.

I also touch base on the book I’m publishing, and the background of what I plan to share about in my very first publication. “A Series of Flashbacks: Darkness Within” is the title of it, and it can be ordered on Spouse-ly.
