Many thanks to Dr. Suzanne Phillips for a wonderful interview (it starts about a minute and a half into the recording)! Suzanne really got into the nuts and bolts of our transition as individuals and as a couple. I loved being able to share about the ways that Compassionate Communication touched our journey. 
Housewife is also honored to have received a Nautilus award (former recipients include Thich Nhat Hanh, Barbara Kingsolver, Deepak Chopra, and the Dalai Lama), an Independent Press Award, and to have been selected as a finalist for the Foreword Indies Book of the Year!


“We are all aware through movies, series and the sensational lives of celebrities of the transitions made by transgender men and women. The increased media coverage has invited compassion and support by some and critique, violence and political rejection by others. This episode will clarify the myths and give you an insider’s experience of the transgender journey. Guest Kristin Collier will share her personal story of being a young mother with a toddler and infant son who learns that the husband she loves can no longer carry the secret of his gender identification as a woman. She will bring you into the emotional steps of her husband’s transition while facing you with the day-to-day details of her own necessary transformation. If your husband is a woman- who are you? Can you love and support the woman he becomes? What do you tell your little boys? How do you meet your needs? Kristin Collier’s story of strength, compassion and unexpected answers is one you won’t forget.”
