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.

...When you come face to face with life-altering circumstances it can leave you wondering “what do I do now” and “who in the world am I?'' You were on a particular path going in one direction thinking “Okay this is me. This is what I am supposed to be doing.” And then BAM! something happens that changes the whole trajectory of your life.

- Excerpt, Chapter 1 : "Nah, Who Am I Really? Identity: The Crisis of Finding Who Christ Is…"
