Be a part of the glitter of life. Joanna lost her father, her rock, to a heart attack in 2004. As she and her family sat in the hospital waiting room hoping for good news, Joanna’s sister thought about her young children. How would they comprehend the loss of their grandfather? Would they know and remember him?
A conversation between Joanna and her sister led to an idea and Sparkles in the Heart was born. The Sparkles in the Heart project is designed to help children share memories of their loved ones and let them go in an active way.
In this podcast Joanna shares the experiences she’s had with both children and adults as they participate in the Sparkles in the Heart process. She finds that sharing memories of loved ones with this process helps fill one’s heart space, helping them heal.
The project is still in the works and Joanna hopes to have materials created within the next year. Joanna’s contact info is featured in the podcast recording. She’d love to hear your thoughts about the project as well as your personal stories.
