My Husband Died, Now What?
A Widow’s Guide to Grief Recovery & Smart Financial Decisions
Are you widowed, or do you know a widow who is fearful about her new-found state—emotionally and financially? Want a thorough guide to follow so you can move through grief emotionally in order to make smart financial decisions? If your answer to these questions is yes, yet you didn’t know who you could trust, look no further.
Written in English, not Financese, this easy-to-follow guide is divided into 2 Parts.
- Meets you where you are, beginning with picking up your emotional pieces,
- Prepares you for the stupid-ass things people say, and

- Care for yourself and why it’s so vital,
- Heal through giving
- Forgive and release your husband,
- Dust off your courage to re-create your life,
