Life Can Be Good Again.  Putting your world back together after it all falls apart.                                                                                                                                                         
Lisa Appelo became a widow and single mom to her seven children–who were 4 to 19 years old–when her husband died unexpectedly. She inspires women to cultivate faith in life’s storms through her speaking and writing at the popular blogs LisaAppelo.com and HopeinGrief.com. A former litigating attorney, Lisa loves teaching God’s Word and long enough walks on the beach to justify lots of dark chocolate. 
Guest Musician- TBD

The Bible commands us to “plead for the widow”.  Too often, the perception is that once a funeral is over and a widow begins to appear to have regained normality in her life no need exists for her care.  Nothing can be further from the truth.  Being a widow does not have to mean being alone.

Widows are hurting deeply one year, two years and even ten years plus.  In our Widow Fellowship Groups, there is no directing, counseling, steering toward a predetermined goal, no manipulation, no fixing — just a complete reliance on God to work.

“No one can comfort a widow like another widow. When we see another woman enter this experience…we want to comfort her.” - Miriam Neff
