Kris' Journey

I learned many things while on the road, but the most important thing I learned was living in the moment.  This blog is a continuation of thoughts when they surface.

Kris Speaks From the Heart, He Talks the Talk and Walks the Walk

Heidi & Gloria HorsleyKris is an inspirational, energetic, and moving speaker.  He tells his own story with brutal honesty, and takes workshop attendees through his journey of despair and darkness, to hope and light.  After Kris lost his only son Blake,in a car accident, his wife left him. Suddenly alone and without a family, Kris wonders not only how he is going to survive, but if he even wants to.  Hitting rock bottom, Kris gets in his car and travels throughout the United States speaking to others who have suffered losses.  

He uses a birdhouse as a metaphor for grief, loss, hope and healing.  I have been to hundreds of workshops and this is hands down one of the best workshops I have ever attended.  Kris speaks from the heart, he talks the talk and walks the walk.  Kris is a true example of someone who despite major adversity, has gone on to find hope again.  He inspires others to believe that it is possible to not only survive after loss, but to eventually thrive.
