"Grief does not go anywhere".-Juanetta White
My guest today is a fly widow, Juanetta White.
She was married to her high school sweetheart and very best friend, “Big Al”, for 20 years. They were together for 30 years. She became a widow at 46, when Al passed away unexpectedly on December 19, 2020. She loves being a mom to their only child and “favorite teenager,” Ashton.
A big part of Juanetta’s healing journey includes rediscovering who she is and deciding how she wants to show up in the world during this next season of life. As a woman of faith, she is learning to trust God’s plan…even when it’s hard…even when it hurts. She believes that our grief is a reflection of the love we carry for the person we lost. Juanetta wants others to know that they can grieve while experiencing joy and peace. She is intentional about finding a reason to laugh every day. On the weekends, you can find Juanetta and Ashton taking a ride in Big Al’s restored 1968 Chevy Impala…laughing, with the music turned up loud.
Juanetta is a certified Leadership, Career and Life Coach, and a certified Human Resources Consultant. She is passionate about helping people embrace new perspectives and develop competencies so they can show up as the best versions of themselves at work and home. In early 2020, prior to his passing, Al encouraged and supported Juanetta as she launched JSW Coaching and Consulting.
