My mom's death in 2013 called me to become a "student of grief," and I answered the call by reading, writing, and transmitting powerful truths about grief and loss through my heart's work, my podcast Coming Back: Conversations on Life After Loss.
I'm on Patreon because:
1) I want to keep creating my heart's work, and
2) I want to offer fun swag and insider interactions to the individuals who keep me going.
Becoming a patron means standing with me in the belief that the world needs more open conversation about the days, months, and years that follow loss.
This grief thing ain't easy—but we can make it a little less isolating by getting our hands (and ears!) on as many stories of life after loss as we can. That is my mission on Coming Back.
Just check out these reviews!
"Brilliant, kind, compassionate. Her podcast helps me feel just human, going through it, with other humans. A true gift." -Amy, Facebook Review
"A remedy for anyone who has experienced the grief that comes with loss." -Apple Podcasts Review
"Shelby's podcast and Facebook group have made me realize that there are others walking this road of grief. I am not alone!" -Donna, Facebook Review
It takes about 10 hours behind the scenes to produce each episode of Coming Back. I could go after advertisers or put up an "insiders only" paywall to compensate for my time, but I firmly believe that grieving people need and deserve free, easily accessible resources—especially in the immediate aftermath of their losses. And whether that's my expertise, a listener's question answered, or a guest's personal story, I want Coming Back to exist in the world with as few barriers to entry as humanly (and technologically) possible.
I never expected this would be my calling, but talking about grief and loss is my heart's work—and I'm determined to keep on doing it! I would be so honored to have your support along the way. Thank you so, so much for being here—and for listening to Coming Back. I can't wait to see you behind the scenes!
Because even through grief, we are growing. ♥
