“Mrs. Carlson, your husband has expired.”
Six heart-shattering words, delivered over the phone, from two doctors Kristine Carlson had never met, on the other side of the country—and her entire world changed forever.
The sudden and tragic loss of her late husband, Dr. Richard Carlson, sent her into a spiral of immobilizing grief. They had shared a beautiful marriage, two incredible daughters, and an amazing life. Together, they co-authored the Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff book series, which has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide. In a blink, at 43, she lost her best friend and life partner and became a widow and single mom, and her life would never be the same.
Her journey to healing and wholeness after loss was not quick, nor was it easy.
But today Kristine, a bestselling author whose life was the subject of the recent Lifetime Television movie, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: The Kristine Carlson Story, serves as a guide for those navigating transition and change of all kinds.
Please join us for this inspiring conversation, as Kristine shares her thoughts about permission to grieve and heal at your own pace, about the importance of reclaiming your identity after loss, and about finding the joy that walks right alongside the sorrow in your next chapter.
