Heidi Swapp is a busy wife and mom to five amazing kids ranging from 13-23 years old. She’s the creative force behind her own brand of signature craft and memory-keeping products which can be found online and in craft stores throughout the world. In 2015 Heidi and her family suffered a devastating loss as her 16 year old son Cory died by suicide. I have been amazed at her strength and resilience as she faced this terrible heartache in the public eye, with her large social media following rallying behind her. Heidi has continued to share and connect, becoming an advocate for suicide prevention through community events and her podcast called Light the Fight, where she talks about how important it is to have a genuine relationship with your children.
