Inspirational Author Kristine Carlson Writes Books That Change Lives

Kristine Carlson is an unyielding believer of not sweating the small stuff in order to live the big stuff and experience true happiness in life.

The best-selling author and inspirational speaker has continued to expand on the phenomenal success of her late husband, Dr. Richard Carlson, beloved author of the “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” series, who passed away suddenly in 2006.

It was holding onto the timeless wisdom of the “Don’t Sweat” philosophies that empowered and supported Carlson throughout her healing journey and led her to begin sharing the tried-and-true lessons she learned along the way.

Carlson is a sought-after speaker recognized for her unusual capacity to be transparent, vulnerable, and authentic; and for her innate ability to connect deeply with her audience. Carlson shares her hard-won wisdom and practical ideas to empower women in Living the Big Stuff™ and experiencing true freedom: the freedom to love, the freedom to heal, the freedom to overcome, and the freedom to succeed.

Carlson has appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “The Today Show,” “The View,” and other national media. She has captivated readers with her first three best-sellers, including “An Hour to Live, An Hour to Love: The True Story of the Best Gift Ever Given,” “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff in Love,” “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff for Women,” “Heartbroken Open,” and her most recent release, “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff for Moms.”

In 2012, she launched DontSweatMoms.com, an online community to mother the mothers and empower moms to stress less and enjoy their families more. And in 2013, she hosted her first conference, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff for Moms.

Recently, she spoke to a group of entrepreneurs about resiliency and overcoming obstacles, saying: “Don’t sweat the small stuff so you have the reserve power you need to live the big stuff!” Click here to watch the video.
