Practical advice for navigating forward

As a widow supporter, I have found so many gems in this podcast that make me a more empathetic advisor and supporter. The variety of guests provide so much advice to rise up and navigate forward.

Kat J Forbes ,

This podcast is pure gold!

It’s so refreshing and inspiring to hear all these stories of grief and to see resilience and inspiration! Being widowed at a young age I felt very alone. But finding other people my age going thru something similar made me feel not so isolated. Thank you!

the world needs this

My father died when I was these, leaving my mother as a young widow. I never realized how much complexity and trauma she went through and listening to this podcast has helped me understand her journey more and how I can support her as an adult. Thank you Melissa. @gloriachoupr
