Kerry Phillips’ world was forever changed in March 2012 when just one week after her first wedding anniversary she got the call that no one wants to hear: your husband has died. Determined to not allow grief to drag her under, Kerry chose to become an advocate for the widowed community, sharing her own journey and those of other young widows. She also realized there weren't support groups for widows and widowers wanting to venture back into the world of dating and started Young, Widowed & Dating. It provides a forum for those seeking a new love story to share their dating adventures and insights into life after loss. Her weekly blog covers topics ranging from relationships with in-laws to dating while raising children and everything in between.
She's a contributor to the book, "Widowed But Not Wounded: The Hustle & Flow of 13 Resilient Black Widowed Women", and has authored, "Writing & Widowing: Journaling the Journey", a series of journal prompts for the widowed community. Her new book, "The One Thing: 100 Widows Share Lessons on Love, Loss, and Life", is a resource for new widows told from the vantage point of those who have lived it.
When she’s not blogging, Kerry is busy raising a feisty preschooler and power-walking her way through local 5K races.
