Who we are
Refocusing Widows is a faith-based ministry initiative under the umbrella of Fresh Hope. We utilize research-supported peer-to-peer support structures, as well as personal coaching, to encourage widows to embrace and move through their grief to a new season of growth and personal accomplishment.
The Vision of Refocusing Widows is a simple one: “We envision a host of women who have embraced grief, discovered their new identity, and leveraged their strengths and gifts so that they are empowered to change the world around them.”
Refocusing Widows exists to identify, provide resources and coaching, and establish a peer-to-peer support community for widowed individuals.
Learning to live well, and to experience a joy-filled, abundant life in spite of the loss of my spouse.
Uniqueness of being a Widow
I have experienced the profound grief of losing my spouse. Because only another widow can truly identify, I choose to seek help and support from other widows in a safe environment where I can share my pain, my struggles, and my victories.
“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together,
as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” – Hebrews 10:24-25
