A little bit about my why: "The Light within: a guided course for widows"
As a 28-year-old widow with five young kids and a murder trial looming, I spent countless moments in the fog. I felt alone and trapped in a story I did not choose. I didn’t know how to move forward, and, in many ways, I was stuck. I felt a loss of community, the pain of losing my spouse, the heartache of parenting alone, and I had a longing to know I wasn't alone. I searched for answers and spent so many hours seeking connection to others who had been where I have been.
I created this course to offer tools and ideas for fellow widows who feel just like I felt—stuck in the fog. I know it will give hope, and help you feel a sense of connection. I know it will give you options beyond feeling stuck, and help you find freedom from the darkness and pain of feeling trapped in widowhood.
The course consists of over 4 hours of videos that are broken down into small sections. Each video corresponds to a section in the workbook to address each new concept to help you implement and brainstorm how it looks in your healing. Each section was designed to help you remember your truths to empower you to start moving forward with courage and strength.
With each class prerecorded, it allows you to pace yourself and move to the next video and section when you are ready. Each step will bring you tools and applications to help you live life with purpose, truth, and joy.
The course will include lifetime access to all videos and the step-by-step workbook.
I created each section to help you understand your grief from different angles and create your own personal plans for application in your every day life.
I know this course will bring you light and help you be guided to your next steps in life. Your story isn't over. Today still has purpose, and I know as you spend time healing the past, making a personal plan for your future, and finding peace in where you are right now, you will be able to see more clearly that there are still going to be many more amazing tomorrows.
Thank you for joining me here! I am humbled to walk with you down this path and excited to watch you create the plan that inspires you to move forward and heal. I can’t wait to see you soon!
