The River in Her Heart with guest Amber SmithI am so honored to be bringing you the conversation Amber Smith and I shared recently. Amber’s wisdom, warmth and kindness touched my heart and I know it will touch yours too. Amber and her husband, country music singer Granger Smith, lost their 3-year old son River in an accidental drowning in their backyard pool in the summer of 2019.In today’s episode Amber opens up about what it’s like to be grieving in the public eye. She shares the advice she received about how to tell their other two children about River’s death. She reveals what’s helping her navigate grief in year 2, about their decision to donate River’s organs, and about the work she is doing to carry River’s memory forward through the River Kelly Fund.

If humor is the best medicine, then my guest today is going to make you feel so much better!When you find someone who just gets it, you want to hold on to them forever. That’s how I felt as I laughed and cried my way through today’s conversation with my guest, Leslie Gray Streeter.Leslie is the absolute queen of pop-culture references and she found a way to weave in more than a dozen as we explored her love and loss of her late husband Scott, the heartbreak of knowing her son will grow up without him, and the lessons life hands you when you become a widow.Leslie’s memoir, Black Widow - A Sad-Funny Journey THrough Grief for People Who Normally Avoid Books with Words Like “Journey” in the Title hooked me from the front cover. I could not put down this book until I had devoured it all. She speaks so much truth about the thoughts, feelings and experiences of widhowhood that I practically got whiplash from nodding so vigorously as I read.If you’re a fellow widow, I’m sorry you’re in this club, but I know you’ll find solace in her insights and her humor. If you’re someone who is grieving a different loss, or trying to show up for someone in your life who is grieving, she offers wisdom there too. About The Host As founder of Reimagining Grief, I’m on a mission to help you find language when you’re at a loss for words.

In This EpisodeDo you ever have a moment when you meet someone, a fellow traveler on their grief journey, and you know immediately you’re going to be friends?Well that’s how I felt the first time Elizabeth Benton and I spoke. Her warmth, thoughtfulness and tenderness shone through.Elizabeth is a successful entrepreneur, owner of Primal Potential. An inspirational author of the book Chasing Cupcakes. Host of the wildly popular Primal Potential Podcast. She is passionate about using her own experiences of transformation to help others.She is a wife. She is a friend. And she is a grieving mother who is opening up about the recent loss of her 2 week old daughter Dagney at the beginning of the COVID19 Pandemic. She is sharing her story with all of us, because like me, she believes if we’re going to show up in community and love one another through the pain of loss, we have to speak openly and honestly about it all. About The Host As founder of Reimagining Grief, I’m on a mission to help you find language when you’re at a loss for words.
