Creating Safe Spaces: Mental Health, Faith, Family, and Connection with Lori Wildenberg

Welcome, listeners, to another episode of Fierce Calling! In this episode, Creating Safe Spaces: Mental Health, Faith, Family, and Connection, our host Doris is joined by the incredible Lori Wildenberg, a licensed parent and family educator, also known as a parent coach. Lori is here to discuss her journey and share her profound insights on topics ranging from faith and parenting to overcoming challenges in life.

Our conversation with Lori begins with a thought-provoking analogy. She also shares a deeply personal story about her youngest daughter’s battle with depression, including a failed suicide attempt. She reveals how her daughter’s strength led her to write a powerful and impactful blog, providing solace to those facing similar struggles. Inspired by her daughter’s bravery, Lori sought permission to write a book about their experiences, ultimately leading to healing and growth for both of them.

Through her work as a parent coach, Lori helps parents navigate the challenges of raising children who are grappling with mental and emotional health issues.

We delve into the importance of open communication, being rooted in faith, and seeking support within a loving community. I know what Lori shares will encourage, inspire, and challenge you. Listen in while I have a chat with Lori Wildenberg!
