Thank you for being here first of all! Second of all, we have many resources we want to share for you. We imagine after the loss of your loved one you not only feel shocked and lost, you also have scoured the internet trying to find resources and people like you, who can relate. We have been there and done the same thing. This page serves as a place that provides some of the books we endorse and if you know of more please don’t hold out on us, some of our favorite bloggers who share their journeys and unique stories in various walks and ways, and then our very own book which brought the three of us founders even closer together to serve here.
The Hope for Widows Directors Maureen Bobo, Chasity Williams and Khadija Ali published a book in August 2016 that shares three different perspectives of how becoming a widow and dealing with the process of grief changed their lives forever.
The ladies cover various topics such as what happened, solo parenting, finances, balance, coping mechanisms, digression, resentment, complicated grief, gaining to be understood and so much more. This book is raw, uncut and has many personal reflections that may be surprising to read.
Available on Amazon and Kindle. Order your copy today and read the many reviews!
