Losing My Daughter, Gaining a Bus & a New Purpose
Show Notes

How do you say "hello" to one child while you're saying "good-bye" to another? Why was going to sleep such a terrifying experience for Megan? What was the big lesson Megan and her family learned after Aria passed away?

Megan Hillukka is a bereaved mother, with 7 children, 6 of who are still here. Megan encourages and supports grieving mothers that though the worst thing has happened to them, their life is not over. Through her experience of the death of her daughter, Aria, Megan has learned tools and ways of shifting grief so that it can become just a little bit lighter, and easier to live with. 

Because Megan has done the deep work of grief, made space for her grief, and time for her grief, she now has room for joy, laughter, hope, and so much fun in her life. She will never forget her daughter Aria and they talk about her often as a family. She helps the moms she works with learn how to process and move through the emotions of grief and provides a place of safety and compassion with grief so that they too can feel themselves again and hope for their future.

Megan Hillukka is the Host of the Grieving Moms Podcast. She is also a homeschooling mom. She is currently traveling around the United States in a bus with her family and we’ll be getting into that more soon.

Megan and Michael talk about the loss of a child to the sudden unexplained death of a child, her post-traumatic growth experience, and why she's living on a bus.
