Growing in our Faith

If you are grieving the loss of your husband, you probably feel very alone and misunderstood. Unless someone has experienced the loss of a spouse, they can’t understand the depth of your pain. We do…because we have gone through the pain of losing a husband.

We know the pain is unbearable right now.  We know you have questions and don’t understand why your husband is gone. And we know you probably feel as though your heart has been ripped from your chest. We have been where you are now.

But there is Hope for Joy Again…

It’s found in God. He will comfort you and bring healing. Don’t run from Him, run to Him.  Pour out your heart to Him. Wail. Scream. Cry.  It’s OK. You need to grieve. And everyone grieves differently. Don’t let anyone tell you that it’s time to move on. That’s a very painful and seemingly insensitive thing to say to a person who is grieving. But, forgive them. They aren’t being insensitive. They truly don’t understand…they can’t…they are not in your shoes. Ask God to comfort you and show you what He has planned for your life moving forward.

It’s our prayer that this section of our website will help you find comfort in God’s Word. These articles are written by women who have experienced the loss of their husbands either through death or divorce and who have spent time writing out their feelings, prayers and praises to God for how He has helped and continues to help them through this difficult journey.

We are praying for you and the women who visit this website in the hope of finding someone who understands and the strength to process their grief.

Weekly readings from

The Garden of Our Heart


The devotionals in this series focus on how planting, cultivating and growing a garden can be similar to growing in your relationship with Christ. If you are grieving, there is nothing that will soothe your soul like digging into God’s Word to learn how to cling to Him as your provider, protector, counselor and husband to the widow.

Feel free to download the Devotional to use in your own quiet time.
