This is a great read for older widows. As some of the advice does apply to younger widows, most of the book is more for older widows. I did enjoy all the Scripture and poems, and they were very encouraging. However, as a young widow of 33 with a 3 yr. old I do not have time to bake my own whole wheat bread and grind my own wheat. I would recommend this book to older widows.
Joyce Rogers' Grace for the Widow is wonderful. Her short, personal stories enhance the plethora of Scriptures that are exactly what a widow will love. Her practical bits of wisdom and advice are icing on the cake. I've already ordered several copies for gifts, and the response from each woman has been extremely positive. Thanks, Joyce, for your hard work to put together an encouraging, realistic and Scriptural book for widows.
I have been a widow for a little over a year. The walk is not easy. The emptiness is so sad. I miss my husband terribly. Only a woman who has gone through this loss, could write on pages what I feel in my heart.Dr. Adrian Rogers blessed us for many years with his Word from God. He comforted our soul in times of health, wealth, loss, etc., whatever came our way. His wife too finds the words that ring true to this valley of loneliness from death. Appreciate her words of comfort and truth as to times ahead. Our God is good. He makes no mistakes. He supplies words of wisdom for those that will reach out and take them. I am indebted to Mrs. Rogers.
This book was okay but did not cover most of the concerns and reactions of recent widowhood... I will not purchase additional copies of this book to share. It would not have met my emotional needs or explained how to cope with so many issues. God got me through.. He sent a different book along.
I have read several books concerning the emotions we experience when we loose a spouse. This is the first book to really tell me HOW to move on with God's help. It cautions us on the mistakes we could make and recommends things we can do by ourselves. I would highly recommend this book to comfort and guide any widow or widower in moving forward with their life. We never get over it but we can live on.
Beautiful book. Just right for the new widow: skinny book, big print, full of scripture and encouragement. This is a book that can be read and absorbed even when in the "fog" of early widowhood that the author describes. I have given copies of this book as gifts and they have been appreciated.
This book is a great help to any widow. Excellent source to read for grieving.
I found this to have practical help and to confirm what I have experienced. You can never be totally prepared for widowhood and this helps you know you are normal.Glad I bought it.
