About The Anthology

We've all heard the "tragedy to triumph" stories of people from all walks of life, how they suffered unimaginable pain and setbacks; only to magically rise up and change their lives for the better.

In widowhood - we see the same stories. People who turned their "pain into purpose" and bounced back - moving forward with new joys, new loves, and a renewed outlook on their next chapters of life.

What we don't hear about - is the TRUTH about "bouncing back"...

In this real and raw collection, 10 Christian women from different backgrounds, ages, and stages of widowhood reveal their journeys of self discovery, and uncover the very unexpected truth about 'bouncing back'.

 This encouraging compilation aims to connect to widowed people in the midst of their healing, and offers enlightenment and kinship in the journey of consistently (repeatedly!) bouncing back after spousal loss.


I became angry at the world, and angry with life.. and the debilitating rejection was back. This time, I felt rejected by God, Himself. With the number of prayers that went up on behalf of my husband, I believed wholeheartedly that God was going to heal him. God was supposed to 'show up and show OUT!', right?.. [..] On May 10th I stopped praying. For anything. What was left to pray for? He was gone.
