Postcards Greyden book cover picture[1]Over the years, I’ve stayed connected to certain websites that guide widows/widowers back into the mainstream of life. My online friend, Ferree Hardy, has one of the best websites for resources….Widow’s Christian Place. As the holidays approach, loss is magnified in our lives. Please check out one of her latest blogs that may give you additional ideas in how to muddle through your grief….”What Are Your Resources?”

Ferree gives several suggestions from helping to choose the right “counselors” to talk with, to helpful websites, online support groups, financial assistance, grief support groups as well as organizations and help just for widowers.

Ferree has also written a book, “Postcards from the Widows’ Path“. Her book helps guide widows through the phases of widowhood through the Book of Ruth. There is always HOPE in our darkest moments. Find resources that feel best for you!

If you or someone you know and love is struggling through grief this holiday season, there’s still time to order my book by Christmas! Watch the video here….

Order book here:  A Widow’s Pursuit – Finding Out There’s More to Life Than Grief

As a widow in shock, I initially clung to my faith and was filled with God’s peace. When the shock wore off, reality set in, and I was overwhelmed with unfamiliar feelings. I filled the void and numbed my pain with harmful behaviors. By neglecting my children, a consequence followed, jolting me to wake-up to my responsibilities.

I finally surrendered to God and asked for His forgiveness and help. As my faith grew and God led me through grief, my heart healed, I let go of the past and comfort came back into my life. Once I accepted my loss, I awakened to a new life of being a single mom and contemplated new dreams and goals. Struggles still persisted, but I was diligent to pray for guidance to follow God’s will for my family. With God’s grace, hope came back as I experienced more purpose and joy than I ever thought possible.

This is my memoir of being an irrational, 34 yr. old widow, with young children, and how I learned to pursue my faith to overcome grief. Consequently, I discovered an amazing life after my loss. By sharing my story, I hope to help other widows and those struggling through grief.
