Welcome to the Inner Picture Stories Podcast and to the first interview of the show! This was a true blast of an interview to start with. The guest I had on the show was no one other than my very own mom!
At the young age of 34 she lost her husband – my dad (I was only 3 years old back than), which was, as you can imagine, an incredibly traumatic experience. One that sadly enough, life can throw at us from time to time. I have been wanting to do this interview for a long, long time, and finally I got the chance. Together we dive into the journey she took while dealing with her loss and how she finally managed to move on and lead a happy, fulfilling life. This was an emotional conversation for the both of us as it is a very personal subject for myself as well. But it is one that is full of honest, true wisdom and lessons that anyone can learn from.
Please enjoy this very first episode 001 with Nancy Kerkhofs, aka my mom.
