Gold Star Widow Beth MacDonald Part 1: Accept grief and continue to find the humor in life
Bethanie MacDonald is a Gold Star spouse, author, motivational speaker, and Green Beret Foundation Veteran Service Officer. After losing her husband MSG Gregory Trent in 2012, she chose to continue living her life with humor and an openness to let people know they are not alone. Now she writes and shares her story of struggles and triumphs as she encourages resilience in others. She joins our Relentlessly Resilient hosts in this first part of a series, to share her insights.
Even though we live in challenging times we can become Relentlessly Resilient as we lean on and learn from one another’s experiences. Hosts Jennie Taylor and Michelle Scharf are no strangers to overcoming adversity; Michelle lost her husband to cancer, while Jennie’s husband Major Brent Taylor was killed in the service of our country. Their stories bond them together and now listeners can join them weekly as they visit with others enduring challenges and who teach us how they are exercising resiliency, finding value in their grief, and purpose in moving forward.
