Welcome to Grief 2 Growth

Shining Light Parents Episodes

Shining Light Parents is Helping Parents Heal's term for parents who have a child who has died. The term has two meanings. One, we believe our children are Shining Lights, doing great work in spirit, cheering us on, and guiding us- even bringing us together.

Second, we aspire to become Shining Lights ourselves as we inspire and help others navigate their grief.
