Very Happy Stories

Hosted ByLiza Blas

Liza Blas is a storyteller who is raising two unique kids, both struggling with severe mental illness and Lyme disease. While her life stories are rooted in challenging topics, Liza brings light out of darkness, providing empathy, validation, and inspiration to parents with similar struggles.

Liza Blas brings hope, power, and freedom to her audience. Liza’s stories are inspired by her experiences raising two very unique kids, both suffering from conditions like depression, anxiety, eating disorders, hallucinations, ADHD, and OCD. Just when she thought life couldn’t get any harder, the universe dropped a big ole’ lemon on their family when both kids were diagnosed with Lyme disease.

To survive her darkest days, she wrote it all down. She was amazed to discover that her stories are more about gratitude than grievance. She wants to share these very happy stories to help her audience feel empowered, motivated and inspired.

Every episode of Very Happy Stories is born out of Liza’s ability to find a gem in a difficult situation, to work through a struggle with her children, reflect on the story, and learn something that she can share that provides her audience with a sense of community, validation, and hope.

Liza’s ability to string together an interesting story, to communicate a message, and to grab an audience’s attention make Very Happy Stories possible. Her voice is engaging and pleasant, which is imperative for a podcast host. When Liza says, “And the story goes something like this,” her audience is hooked.

Like all good stories, Very Happy Stories are led with conflict, intrigue, and characters you fall in love with. Very Happy Stories make you think and feel, and they always end with an insight that brings inspiration and support: your happy ending.

Content details: Some topics include adult themes such as suicidal ideation and hallucinations. On rare occasions, some adult language may be used (such as curse words).
