Ready for a break grieving mama?

Are you a mom that has lost a child?

Whether you lost a child a year ago or a decade ago, we know that you are in the club that none of us wanted to join.

Do you find that your friends and other family members just don't understand what it means to be a grieving mom?

Having a hard time connecting with people?

If this is you, we invite you to our upcoming Mom's Grief Retreat!

Meet your host, Kelli Nielsen

Kelli didn’t grow up with visions of becoming The Grief Guru, but life had other plans. After losing her mother to suicide in 2017 she found herself swept out in a sea of grief.  Barely able to get through the days she looked for help and was discouraged when she didn’t find the support or tools to recover. 

Thankfully an encounter with an inspiring speaker showed her that healing was available to her. She decided then and there to dedicate herself to recovering from grief.  She studied, prayed, documented her process, and began to recover.  Her recovery came not a moment too soon as just a year later her 20 year old son Quintin died of an accidental drug overdose.

Kelli has since become a speaker, author, and coach. Her book, You’re Not Crazy, You’re Grieving, shares the process she used to heal from her tremendous losses. She also founded The Grief Guru, a company focused on helping others learn to move forward on purpose, in purpose and love their lives after loss.

“Do you believe you can recover?” This was an awakening! I didn’t realize I was carrying around the belief that I would never recover from this! Now, I know I can and will recover. I am a believer! I couldn’t be more grateful for the help.

Kendal Jachthuber

The information was well presented and offered me an opportunity to process and share in a way that I haven’t been able to do before. I loved the faith perspective. Thank you for sharing your talents with us, I appreciate the support and encouragement.

Kelli’s delivery was very genuine. Her approach to moving through grief was straightforward and motivating. The balance of content was perfect. It was more than I anticipated!
