This August it will be two years since I headed out to Whitefish, Montana for Laura Munson's Writing Retreat. Montana is where I met Kristin Meekhof, a young women who was a fellow writer and now a friend. Over the past two years, Kristin has brought to life her book, A Widow's Guide to Healing: Gentle Support and Advice for the First Five Years. Kristin lost her husband to adrenal cancer in only seven weeks after the initial diagnoses. Kristin wrote this book to help guide women through the first five years of widowhood as they work to navigate the new realities of their life.
In addition to completing her book, Kristin has spent the last two years meeting with widows all around the world who have transformed their loss into something beautiful. Kristin's story is about transforming her loss into a book that will help other. I encourage you to pre-order a copy for any woman in your life that is going through this transition. The book will be released in paperback on November 3, 2015.
