The principles in this book are biblical and they work! Wes Teterud practices them himself and has helped hundreds of widows in significant practical ways. This book is a how-to manual for your church.
The information I gained on the subject of caring for widows proved helpful before I even finished the book! I had never read anything on this subject. Even though I know many widows, I had no idea of their needs. In one book Wes Teterud uses biblical and practical reasons why we need to help widows and what are good ways to do so. Everyone should read this book.
Having just become a widow with the unexpected death of my husband I was devastated and did not know what to expect. My church had never dealt with this issue on a personal basis so was also unaware of what and how to help me. In reading Teterud's book I learned a great deal of what was happening with me and even just knowing that the period of grief is so devastating and overwhleming and will only get worse made me a learner. I highly recommend this book for the widow and the church and church individuals. No one has any idea of the devastating effect grief has until that one experiences it. I have lent it to friends who are amazed at what happens to the widow/er and begin reaching out with great compassion. Treating widows/ers is an overlooked ministry in most churches. God does not overlook but tells his people to attend to them and take care of them. Truly this book should be required reading in seminaries, Sunday Schools. elders, and any other in charge persons.
As I am the author, what else would I say!
