A PLACE OF YES podcast

“We are living every day with the fact that our son died, that our son who was supposed to be alive is not.” –Heather Straughter

Heather Straughter was 36 when her four-year-old son Jake suddenly died. Now, 13 years later Heather is sharing how the only way she could move forward was by channeling her grief for good and finding “A Place of Yes.”

“All I can say is, you can dig deep, figure out where you are, and figure out where you want to be, and for me, I found the answer was in this place of yes,” Heather said.

Introducing “A Place of YES,” a podcast about channeling your grief to create something good. 

Coming this February, the non-profit Jake’s Help From Heaven will be releasing weekly episodes showcasing the good that has been done in the 13 years since Jake’s death. You’ll meet mothers who know Heather’s grief and her joy. You’ll get to know the children who have been helped by Jake, and you’ll meet the people who have helped make all this joy possible.
