41pR5XCta4L__BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_OU01_I want to share with my followers a very disturbing finding. 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!

widows journey 2018 retreatDo you have that need to get away? To find someone that understands the loss of a spouse like you do? It may be time to take that next step!

My widow friend, Ferree, will be a small group leader for this retreat in March. Visit her website, Widow’s Christian Place and pray if this fits into your New Year….

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.

a6d35804-7b97-4538-90e0-5ba63074b195[1]My church put together five simple concepts they felt were important about making New Year’s Resolutions. So they wanted to remind us of those:
1) Keep it Simple
2) Include others
3) Celebrate Accomplishments
4) Encourage Often
5) Focus on the Big Picture
Additionally, they sent an exercise that would be a great way to finish out 2017 and begin 2018: I filled it out and it was a great reflection from the year past and the year to come!
