compassWe never really know what lies ahead in our life’s journey. Just as we think we have things figured out and what direction we’re headed, life throws us a curve ball!

My online blogger friend, JoAnne Funch, gives a great analogy for helping us through the grief process in her Heartache to Healing website. Sometimes we have to be open to change and allow our inner compass to guide us through. JoAnne shares her blog: Life is like a Compass.

“Just as our grief doesn’t follow a predictable course like a map, neither does life. In fact, it’s more like a compass because it points you in the general direction and then you figure out where to turn.” -JoAnne Funch

When I pulled up my book on the Amazon website last month, I found out that 3rd party sellers were selling my $14.99 book for hundreds of dollars! I called Amazon for assistance and was told they could not do much about it. There have been about 20 sellers, selling 3 versions of my book (2012, 2015 & 2017) from $12.13 up to $298.69!!!!

First of all, no one should be purchasing the 2012 or 2015 version of my book. The newest edition is the 2017 that should only be bought through Amazon here. I am very annoyed that these 3rd party sellers are jacking up the price and I’m not even sure the purchaser will even receive my book!

I’ve emailed each of the sellers and asked them to remove my book from their list. Most of them obliged and the rest I’ve had to report to scamsellers. There are still about 4 of them who haven’t been removed, but I am still working on it.

Please be aware and do not purchase through any 3rd party seller. Sorry for the inconvenience! Only order “A Widow’s Pursuit” through Amazon for $14.99!

The Godly Widow Confiding in the Widow's GodThis is a great way to meet other widows who understand the GRIEF that goes with widowhood! Please visit Ferree’s website “Widow’s Christian Place” for more information on the retreat at Sandy Cove Ministry Center in North East, Maryland.

Sandy Cove Ministries is putting on a retreat, stating that this is…..

“A weekend for women of any age who are WIDOWS and at any point in their journey.
People say, “Isn’t it wonderful he’s with the Lord,” and you want to yell, “No! He should be here with me.”
Spend a weekend with other women who have lost their husbands to death. You will be with people who understand your journey. Come share your heart and your hurt and be encouraged as we remind ourselves that, hard as it is, our God is able. Learn from women who are where you are, women who have weathered grief and difficult times.”

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.
