    Season 2 Episode 20: Suicide

    This is a subject that is a hard one for me.  It's a detour that I have felt I needed to talk about yet didn't know how? A friend of mine and past guest Kyle called me one day and said he felt like he wanted to talk about this subject and how he has unfortunately dealt with this on many levels. To me it was a sign. I was wanting to talk about it and than he called. Its a sad thing to talk about. Being educated is important though. Join us today and hear some advice and warning signs to look for.

Saving GRACE

Heather has given me hope on some of my darkest and most overwhelming days. Her sweet perspectives on all the challenges through this daunting and emotionally destroying experience. Never does she say it will be easy or have I heard her say “your strong you can do this” she is very real but very positive. I look forward to hearing from her and her guests each week!

Great help for blended families

I really appreciate Heather’s insights. I have a blended family with 7 stepchildren and some of the problems we have faced are so outside my experience and I don’t always know how to handle it. Heather is a great resource! Thanks Heather!
