Jason and I have been married for 21 years. We started dating when he was 15. He is so engraved in my story that I really don’t know what I would do or who I would be without him.

Mrs. Smith, (because we’ve never adopted Ms. Smith; it doesn’t roll off the tongue right) was married to Mr. Smith for 60 years. They started courting when they were 16 years old and married at 17. I vividly remember when he passed and through tears she told me she didn’t know what she would do without him. That was a few years ago. She has found her way.

When a dear friend of mine passed two years ago, I gained a front row seat to young widowhood. This time the husband remained with two young children in tow. They were married 16 years having married when they were 20. I’m amazed by the way this family has grown in grace and stability. He may not feel like a super-dad, but he is and their kids are incredible.

Jason is here to open the pickle jar and I am here to nurture and school the children. Our life is quite different than these two above, but they are so beautiful.

The way Mrs. Smith still bakes bread most days to hand out to others.

The way Brad cares for the needs of his kids and they feel loved, nurtured and taught.

Widows, I know the world has fallen off balance for you and you’ve adjusted to make your way. We want you to know, we think you are beautiful.

Love God & Whoever He Puts In Front Of You
