I recently wrote a book called I Wish Someone Would Have Told Me for teens who lost parents. Since its release, I’ve been getting positive feedback
from many adults who find it helpful too. Some find it useful because they were children when their parent died; some find it useful in understanding their neighbor or student who is growing up without a parent. All were unanimous that the book was filling an important need: the more I heard, the more it became clear that there is a great need for support for anyone who has suffered a loss. Still, when someone suggested hosting a podcast on this topic, I hesitated. Me? I should host a podcast? After much thought and a little research to see if those who had what to share were on board, I decided to accept the challenge. My goal is to bring you talks with all kinds of people who have all different kinds of stories to tell. Some of our guests lived through tragic losses, while others experienced more “typical” losses. Some guests are professionals and some are in the rabbinic field. But each has a unique story and a unique perspective. It is my hope that listening to these stories will fortify you with the support and connections you need and that they will help you gain understanding and clarity about your struggles and tools to help you become a better you.
