Kristine Carlson; Heart Broken Open
Kris Carlson had an idyllic life. She and her husband Richard had a romantic marriage, two beautiful daughters, and—thanks to the success of Richard’s bestselling: Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff series, all of the comforts of the American Dream. But on December 13, 2006, that perfect story took a sudden and heartbreaking turn when, on a typical flight to New York, a pulmonary embolism would take Richards life; catapulting Kris into heartbreak and uncertainty. It was the end of life as Kris knew it, and the beginning of a journey through the depths of grief and mourning that would reveal to Kris her true strength and an immeasurable love that cannot be broken. Since then, Kristine had become a bestselling author of five books, her latest being, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff for Mom’s. Kristine continues to expand and deliver on the Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff message, inspiring millions with timeless wisdom and practical ideas to create a life of abundance. She continues to share her profound message of empowerment, success, emotional strength and love.
