E13: Finding Purpose Within the Pain with Christina Lerchen

Headshot Cindy Klingersquare.jpg

Christina Lerchen of The Best Unexpected left her longtime career as beauty blogger after her best friend was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer in 2011. She gave birth to her stillborn daughter just one month later. We chat about "what not to say," the power of storytelling, and two of Christina's favorite authors, Cheryl Strayed and Brené Brown. Also on the show, I answer a listener question about not getting to say goodbye before a death. And we talk about the importance of holding space for other people's stories of grief, loss, and trauma.
