"Perhaps you're holding this book, thinking, I don't need more sadness in my life. I get it. But this book doesn't focus on sadness. It focuses on hope and comfort, strength, and peace."
-Steve Engram, senior pastor, Desert Springs Community Church in Goodyear, Arizona
You may have lost your husband suddenly, had only a few months to say goodbye, or were a caregiver for several years. And most widows don't have capacity for a book about moving through the trenches of grief or grappling with day-to-day life. That's why this mother-daughter author team chose to write short bite-sized devotions of hope from their own journeys through grief.
Daughter Lori's husband of twenty-one years died of a neurological disorder, and mother Sharon's husband of sixty years passed away from an unexpected aggressive cancer. Both women understand grief, and they extend warm, comforting words of love from Jesus to other widows in their times of deep loss. With each tender devotion and enough space for journaling your thoughts, their messages will help you:
- Lean into Jesus and His love
- Seek personal self-care
- Accept comfort from others
- Guide children through the grief process
- Make important life and daily decisions
- Celebrate the holidays and special events
In Surviving Widowhood: 40 Devotions of Hope, your grieving heart will be comforted, your tears will be seen, and your soul will be nourished.
