Michelle knows the questions to ask and has a heart of compassion to hear the answers. I was asked to share my story on this episode, but I wasn’t prepared for the deep connection that she so willingly allowed as we talked. Her own life experience empowers her to get to the real issues for those who have suffered loses. I highly recommend her podcast! She is well qualified. Thank you for your work., Michelle.

Grief is Shared - Sharing is strength

I love this podcast because it allows us to learn from others through their experiences with loss, and how to weather the grief experience. Michelle allows her guests to explore with us the changes and emotions of their lives. There are so many facets and variations of loss, but we all feel grief and must walk in its midst. Hearing how it has affected others gives me hope in the middle of my grief. Thanks for all you do.

Losing my daughter and gaining eternal perspective

Michelle Heaton is a professional podcast interviewer. We first had a discussion on my story and Michelle shared her story. I knew I was at the right place and we proceeded to the next step, scheduling the interview. I found Michael filled with compassion and she let me do the interview with ease. I would go on her show again anytime she’d ask. It was a marvelous interview and I thank her for having this platform for me to be on. Carole Sluski

How my divorce changed my life.

Michelle has a true gift and the heart for creating meaningful content to help those that have had or are struggling with loss. I pray the information she assembles goes to those that need to hear it. There is no reason we can not deal with the inevitable loss we experience in life and move forward through it.

Podcast experience

Michelle did such a great job with our conversation on her podcast. She was well prepared and had thoroughly done her research on me and the topic we discussed. In addition she made sure that I was comfortable with all of her questions in advance and allowed me to preview the results of the podcast before she posted it. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking to expand their audience.
