Have you ever wondered what makes someone tick? Why do they do what they do?
Everyone has a story. Our experiences make us who we are. In this podcast series, Grief Coach Jenny Dilts invites people to share their stories as we discover the extraordinary in ordinary people and explore humanity one heart at a time. Time will be given for a special Q&A after the interview.
Today's guest is Elizabeth Leon, a writer, speaker, and musician from Ashburn, Virginia. She is the author of Let Yourself Be Loved: Big Lessons from a Little Life and the founder of The Journey of the Beloved. She has been a leader in ministry and faith formation for more than twenty-five years and desires to inspire others to tell the truth about their story of suffering, grief, and harm in order to find freedom and healing through Christ. Her gift is her willingness to be vulnerable and love with a heart wide-open despite the brokenness of divorce, death, and abuse.
Elizabeth and her husband Ralph are the parents of 10 children, 5 of hers, 4 of his, and their son, John Paul Raphael who died in 2018. In her book, Elizabeth cracks open the landscape of grief to reveal a love story. She invites readers deeply into her personal journey and invites them to consider grief, uncertainty, and suffering as a pathway to joy. Her passion is sharing her story. She is a frequent speaker at women’s events in Northern Virginia. Let Yourself Be Loved: Big Lessons from a Little Life is available wherever books are sold.
