Let’s Begin Again
Nobody can understand or know what
you are going through.
There are no words or real roadmap that can ever do justice when the unthinkable has taken place. How do you even come back after something so devastating?
When my husband died, I truly believed that a part of me had gone insane. To be honest with you, a part of me really did.
This is how I know that a part of you feels like everything is upside down right now.
You might even be in The Waiting Room of life, the place in between the life you left behind and the life you have yet to live.
You want to go back to your old life but that is no longer an option. I bet nobody said anything to you about the duality of loss. You are no longer you but everything is as you left it.
You want to love again, live again, dream again but you are not sure that it is going to be possible for you.
I get it.
But here is what I want to share with you today.
There is a part of you that’s been with you all along, a very wise part. This is the part that I want to help bring back. So we can slowly reenter back to life.
It was my own devastating loss of my 35-year old husband that sent me on this journey almost 10 years ago.
You see I spent four of those years in The Waiting Room as I didn’t have the right resources. I even had a Masters in Counseling and had specialized in grief prior to my loss.
These qualifications were nowhere near enough to help me rebuild my life.
Somehow out of soul-wrenching loss, a small quiet movement was birthed. Bringing together others who have shared many kinds of tragic losses.
I have had the honor to work with thousands, write a bestselling book called Second Firsts and build a community around the work that I have called Life Reentry.
I call this experience…
If you feel stuck in a place between the life you left behind and the life you so wish you can have then I hope you will join me and hundreds of others in our next Life Reentry class.
You will receive a video and homework weekly for six weeks and then we will continue meeting inside the Life Reentry Facebook group for people who have gone through loss. We will exit the old life and enter a brand new one, with self-awareness, wisdom and your Thriver. New dreams. New friends and a new way of looking at life. You can no longer live your life the way you used to. It has to change and we will do this together.
I so hope you say yes to yourself and to the future that is waiting for you.
What to Expect
The Life Reentry program lasts 6 weeks, with video classes each week, along with action step homework — plus access to the private, members-only, Life Reentry Facebook group where you can connect with other people who are sharing a similar journey.
- Each week you will be emailed a link to a video.
- You will ask questions, share, support and encourage each other in the Facebook group.
- I will do everything in my power to remind you that your life is not over yet. No matter what has happened to you, you still have the power to reinvent, rebuild, feel again, love again, live again.
- I will wrap up each video with homework – a specific action step that will help you step out of the “waiting room” of loss and into the new life that you want.
- We will interact together daily within the private, members-only, Facebook group and make sure you are moving towards your goals.
- By the end of Life Reentry, your life will look different, you will have tools and resources to rebuild and reenter.
- After the 6 weeks of videos are over, we start a life long journey where we help you make the new dreams come true. You will never be alone again.
My goal? To make every video feel like a Reentry experience with steps and life changing insights.

I was in a desperate dark place for over a year. My husband died January 7th 2017 and I thought that after all the first Anniversary’s I would feel somewhat myself again ready to get back to my passion of teaching. I didn’t as a matter of fact it was the complete opposite I stayed in bed only to get up and take care of my animals. Didn’t shower, dress, eat properly, nothing. I cried then cried some more. Some days I would drink too much just to dull the desperate excruciating pain of loss. I didn’t want to go on, but I knew I couldn’t live like this either. I had been to all the support groups through Hospice which were good I also did a program through a church called grief share. All these helped to share my story of grief, but something was missing!
I ran across Message in a bottle which Christina wrote. I loved her style of writing so I subscribed to the Friday email. Then came the Life Reentry® course. I prayed about it feeling like this was the missing piece. It was after just three weeks I felt the shift! I am back in ministry, my passion of teaching with a new hope walking forward. I still grieve the loss of my beloved, but now I’m honoring him by moving forward into my new life. I cherish the memories we shared together, but I’m moving forward. This course gave me my life back, it’s a different life, but I know I can experience joy again. I have the tools through Christina’s course to work daily on renewing my mind.

“I lost my wife and father in law, two weeks apart, just over a year ago. This event in my life nearly destroyed me, every little piece of ME, and then a friend kept hounding me to read Second Firsts. I finally gave in and listened to it on cd as I was driving to my parents house in Pittsburgh. Driving home I felt my life change. I felt giddy for the first time since my wife died, and I couldn’t wait to get home and sign up for the class. I took Christina’s Life Reentry® class and my whole outlook shifted. With each class you could feel the grief lift and life returning, so I decided to become a Life Reentry® Practitioner. I want to help people the way Christina’s program helped me.”
“The Life Reentry® Class gave “names” to all the emotions I feel in my grief and helps me sort them out and understand them. The class gave me the ability to look at what I was feeling, acknowledge and decide what to do with those feelings. Also, the validation from others in the class is so appreciated and needed as you try to navigate all the emotions of your grief.
“This class has given me the life tools I need to forge onward …don’t wait 7.5 years to do this like me….Do it asap…it will change your outlook, perspective and your life…Christina is a God send for those experiencing loss ….”
“The biggest takeaway from life re-entry was to find out that I was not alone. I thought my grief was unique. In the first lesson Christina mentioned that grief was competitive and that caught my undivided attention. My grief was no worse than anyone else’s. I actually found out some people were experiencing my exact situation. And others were experiencing situations I couldn’t even imagine. That sentence alone changed my perspective so much.”
“This course and Christina’s book are the path forward from a deeply broken heart. I thought I was doing fine before the Life ReEntry Program and on a basic level, I was. However this program gave me the tools and skills to ‘go deep’ to look under the surface of my loss and piece by piece mend the many fragments of my heart and soul. Christina’s work, her facilitators, her process and my entire ReEntry classmates were a gift, a tremendous gift of a new thriving life. Yes, there will be bumps, bruises and sorrows still to come- but now I have the tools to manage these hurts. My total gratitude goes to Christina, her team and my wonderful heartfelt classmates.”

“If all this class gave me was the hope that there was a way out of being stuck in grief, it would have been enough. But over the six weeks, I watched myself and my classmates learn and see the possibility of being whole again, in spite of the holes in their hearts. Forever grateful for Christina and her team, for their work, spirit, and endless support.”
“This class has been a life training in Awareness practice. Recovery from a deep loss is not a linear experience. Because I have seen a progression of healing from my losses I did not realize that I was still in the waiting room. I was not aware of the emotional repetitive loops that were keeping me from embracing my life more fully and thought that this was my new normal. By gaining awareness of my limiting patterns along with non-intimidating tools such as 5% plugins I feel quite surprised and much more hopeful about my future where there is much potential.”

“This class provided me (and my brain) strategies,understanding and self awareness not only about how to navigate grief but how to live and love again in a purposeful and joyful life.”
