helping to redefine the life of widows

There are an estimated 258 million widows worldwide.  Nearly 50% of them fall into poverty after their spouse dies.  Even for those who do not suffer as much financially, the emotional, social, and spiritual impact of widowhood can be overwhelming.    We established our organization to help widows  by providing support, encouragement and information

Our Mission

Because widowhood is an often overlooked  group in society, and is a major source of poverty, our mission is to galvanize resources and the community to assist, inform, and inspire this community.  Our goal is to aid each widow/widower in pursuing the most productive, meaningful and fulfilling life  that they can achieve, despite having experienced one of the most devastating  life events.

Why are 50% of widows in poverty? How is it that even those who name the name of our Lord Jesus, seem to ignore the plight of the widows? You will be hard pressed to find a widow ministry in the average church. Many former wives of pastors and leaders are quickly thrown out, discarded, and mistreated upon the death of their spouse. How can this be among the redeemed? Practically every scripture that speaks about the poor, speaks about the widow. It is time for the widows to arise and for those who love them to help plead their cause! This book outlines what God has to say concerning the widow.

We don't move on from grief...

In a talk that's by turns heartbreaking and hilarious, writer and podcaster Nora McInerny shares her hard-earned wisdom about life and death. Her candid approach to something that will, let's face it, affect us all, is as liberating as it is gut-wrenching. Most powerfully, she encourages us to shift how we approach grief. "A grieving person is going to laugh again and smile again," she says. "They're going to move forward. But that doesn't mean that they've moved on."
