In December 2020, Danielle Johnsrude’s best friend, teammate, and colleague, her husband, lost his short battle with cancer. She has been learning how to navigate grief while leading and parenting a child through this experience as she is mom to a creative and inspiring 4-year-old daughter. Danielle love’s her west coast ocean living, listening to CBC and podcasts of all varieties, hand dripping a freshly roasted cup of coffee, and learning to be grateful in all circumstances while finding purpose through the challenges.
I love Danielle's honest reflection on her husband and what an amazing man, friend, husband and father he was. Our conversation reveals an intimate look into grief and the practical ways Danielle has walked her young daughter through both grief and remembrance for her her dad.
The last two years have brought much loss into the lives of many people in around the world, either though death or other losses. This episode is honest and intimate, and full of strength and hope.
