Episode #46 Walking Alongside: What to say (and what NOT to say) to someone who is grieving
We humans all face loss. When a child dies, however, it is a particularly brutal, life-altering loss. As caring bystanders, we may not know how to respond, help, or approach those who are grieving. We’re worried we’ll say the wrong thing and upset the grieving person, and therefore might end up doing nothing at all. 

Enter Anita Swartley, grief coach and Founder of Mosaic Restorative Coaching, and Kristin Kane Ford, Founder of the Kellan Ford Foundation. Both have lost children to illness and both are on a mission to help others navigate grief. 

These two bright women share their inspirational, messy, heart-wrenching, yet hopeful stories and offer up practical advice on the best ways to walk alongside those who are grieving. This one is a must listen for every human.

Anita Swartley is Founder of Mosaic Restorative Coaching, an outreach created to walk alongside individuals who have experienced loss. After experiencing the loss of her father, two children, and her marriage, Anita’s life was shattered into a million pieces. Despite these devastating losses, Anita was able to find healing and purpose in her life even through the pain. Her strongest desire is to reach back into the depth to help others find a way to live with their loss, and to create a space for grievers to not only share their pain, but to find hope. Anita has her B.A. in Religious Studies from Moravian University and her M.A. in Human Services Counseling from Liberty University. She is a certified life coach accredited through the International Coaching Federation and is a certified SAP counselor. 

Kristin Kane Ford leads a boutique digital marketing firm, Kane Partners. In 2021, Kristin and her husband Mike started The Kellan Ford Foundation in honor of their 5-year-old son, Kellan who lost his life to brain cancer. Kristin is an active member of the community and has been a subject matter expert, featured in numerous media outlets. She speaks nationally on topics related to social media and marketing. And now she shares her grief journey and the impact of her faith. While learning to live with grief Kristin often turns to her son’s faith and mantra of “Today I Choose Happiness” for strength and inspiration. She has a new found appreciation for time, especially time spent with Mike and their son Parker.
