Hi Krista. I’m a former student - now a year and a half into widowhood. I continue to practice what I learned, and I am so grateful that I joined early on. I look forward to your podcasts as much now as I did in the first few months. Thank you for the work you do and for these podcasts.
Thank you so much for what you are doing! I lost my husband unexpectedly on November 3rd & it rocked my world. He was going to be 50 six days after he died. I was in shock, lost without him, then angry for so long. I’m on episode 20. Since I started listening, my anger has decreased, my thoughts have changed & I’m finally started to feel some peace for the first time since Tim died. You’re saying out loud just what I’ve been thinking. I’m so grateful to have found your podcast!
Helpful, but alienating for my situation.
I lost my husband suddenly 3 months ago. The episodes on the grieving process are helpful. Still, this podcast was alienating for my financial and life situation. If you’ve been left with large insurance and investments or have access to resources, especially expensive coaching, out of the reach of most widows, then you’ll resonate with the podcast. The episode on money served a different demographic that did not include me.
