Hey Friend,

In this week's episode, Farah Flisher joins me to talk about something many of us can relate to: the loss of her mother.

Farah opens up about experiencing multiple personal losses, including the untimely death of her mother from a gunshot wound. Farah discusses how writing, baking, yoga, and counseling helped her navigate her grief, eventually leading her to write and publish her memoir 'Mahar and Me'. She also shares her philosophy of looking for hope and strength in times of adversity.
