Hear my conversation with Lori Larson Heller as we talk about love, loss and moving forward instead of moving on.

Lori Larson Heller is a writer, speaker, fierce ALS advocate, and a widow. She was in a season where life was going better than she could of planned. Lori had a husband who was her best friend and soul mate, the absolute love of her life. Then without warning, her plan changed. On September 6, 2018 … her husband Jim Heller was diagnosed with a terminal illness, ALS. She left her successful commercial real estate investment career and became a full-time caregiver that day. After losing her husband Jim to ALS, everything Lori was planning for her future vanished before her eyes, which is when she realized that we are not always in control. Eventually Lori realized she had to make a choice. Either stay stuck in a mindset of “why me”, or dig deep to see if she had the strength to shift her perspective for what the universe had in store. We chat about "the old Lori" and "the new Lori." She shares the superpower we all have: the ability to flip our script and view life through a different lens. Lori shares that life doesn’t happen to us, it happens for us. You'll hear how she's found acceptance of adversities, and discovered blessings in all the tough stuff. I love how faithful she is and encourages others that we’re all here for a reason, and we have to find our purpose. Be blessed, listen in and share with a friend.

Hugs, Lorri
