Healing Tears with Theresa James

In the summer of 1998, just days after her divorce was final, Theresa James’ ex-husband broke into her home and murdered their three children before killing himself. Theresa held her story for almost twenty years. Now, as a means to inspire and encourage others, she offers insight into that life-altering event. After I finished reading “Healing Tears”  I was moved by Theresa’s strength, perseverance, and courage to share her tragedy so others may heal. This show will uplift and inspire you to know that you are never alone. Even in your darkest hour. Join Jane and Theresa for Healing Tears on The Next Room!

She has since published five children’s books honoring the lives of her children: Jarod, Sean, and Brandi respectively - I Love and Like You!, Ornaments of Love, and Precious Time. Her fourth book, Shared Courage, was written for her daughter, Courtney, and final book, Hot Dogs for Every Meal, for her son, Connor. Born in Southern Indiana, James is a proud veteran of the US Air Force. After living many years in Ohio and later the Chicago area, she returned home to Indiana, where she currently resides with her husband, Todd.


About Jane Asher:

Jane Asher has always been a natural connector who has enjoyed a successful career in media and the music industry, most notably at major radio stations in San Diego and Santa Barbara. Several years ago, she stepped away from terrestrial radio when Empower Radio reached out and asked her to create a show about her passion. The Next Room podcast was born.

Demystifying death daily, she interviews professionals and practitioners from diverse backgrounds about death, dying, grief, beliefs and cultural traditions surrounding the journey we all must ultimately make. The show airs across 11 platforms and has connected her with extraordinary people throughout this community. The Next Room has recently become the official podcast of the Beautiful Dying Expo.

Jane is also passionate about being involved in mission work. She has been part of a team for over five years that has built homes in Tijuana for families in need through Lutheran Border Concerns. She has traveled to El Salvador to feed the homeless, Malaysia to help build a school on Borneo, and Armenia to work with women and children in the small village of Amre Taza. Most recently, she was on a humanitarian mission in the Dominican Republic. 

Her book, The Next Room is a story transcending space and time, of a relationship between mother and daughter that grew stronger through death. Written together, by initially enlisting interpretation through a psychic medium, The Next Room takes us on a daughter's journey through learning eternal life lessons on forgiveness, grief, grace, gratitude, and the limitless love of all, God.

Jane lives in San Diego with her husband, Tom. She is now answering her passion-filled purpose and writing daily alongside her puppy and muse, Mamba.
