Our guest this week, Kristin Young, knows a thing or two about grief—five years ago, she lost her son Colby to cancer. Miraculously, she knows even more about hope. In this episode, Kristin graciously shares what it’s like to hold sorrow and joy simultaneously, how she’s learned to make grief her friend, and how we often learn things through suffering we could never grasp by only having joy. We hope this conversation offers you a glimmer of hope, and encourages you as much as it did us.
