In this episode, we are going to have a conversation with the author of a new children’s book, that can help kids and families deal with death and grief in an open and honest way; encourage the sharing of memories of loved ones, and how to have those difficult conversations about losing someone. Heaven’s Bell takes us on a journey of two Best Friends that must face the reality of death and the possibility of what’s beyond that. This book offers a way for people to talk about death and grief and has a special way to share memories and keep them alive; it was written for teens but enjoyed by people of all ages. I’m your host Michael Herst Welcome to One More Thing Before You Go: That Thing About Heaven’s Bell.

My guest in this episode is Sherrie Barch, who is the CEO of two Forbes' ranked top executive search firms and a leadership consulting company. An expert in the areas of leadership, team development, and diversity, her forward-thinking approach to work was recognized when she was chosen to participate in the 'altMBA" program designed and led by leadership guru, Seth Godin.  But Sherrie's passion for storytelling and making room for serious and "heavy" conversations is what brought her to One More Thing Before You Go. This passion was a strong motivation for her to write her children's book, Heaven's Bell, based on a story of the same name she penned several years prior. The story focuses on 11-year-old best friends Cody and Ashley, and what happens when their once-in-a-lifetime friendship is threatened by personal tragedy. We’re going to have a conversation about creating a safe space for families to have a conversation about death and dying in a natural and productive way.
