Widowed free pdf Not just for widows and Widowers, this book is for anyone who wants to understand the searing pain of losing a spouse. On your worst days, Widowed: When Death Sucks the Life out of You comes along beside you like a trusted friend and offers hope, reassuring you that life after a spouse's death exists-that joy can mingle with grief. Not only for widows and widowers, this book teaches pastors, counselors, and friends of the bereaved how the grieving can "learn to live with and embrace the dichotomy of joy and sorrow." "Nearly 700,000 women lose their husbands each year, and they will be widows for an average of fourteen years. Fran Geiger Joslin, who knows the rough seas of such grief, writes as an empathic companion. As one who has 'been there, ' she explores a broad range of questions such as What should I put on the headstone? What do I do with my desire for physical intimacy? And Shouldn't I feel better by now? Drawing from her journals, experiences, and research, Joslin has created in Widowed: When Death Sucks the Life out of You a work that takes readers into the uncharted waters of 'the new normal' and helps them find calmer seas." Sandra Glahn, PhD, Author, Associate Professor of Media Arts and Worship, Editor-in-chief of Kindred Spirit "I wish my widowed friends had this book when they experienced the heartbreak of losing a spouse. Full of practical, empathetic information, Joslin's book serves as a needed friend on an unwanted but necessary journey after grief. I highly recommend this book." Mary DeMuth Speaker and author of more than thirty books including, The Day I Met Jesus

About Fran Geiger Joslin

Fran Geiger Joslin was born to missionary parents in the jungles of Indonesia. She married Brian Geiger in 1989. Ten years later their world came crashing down as her husband received a terminal cancer diagnosis. Brian lost his battle with brain cancer almost nine years later. Devastated by the loss of her best friend, Fran, along with her kids, clung to the Lord to pick up the pieces in their shattered lives. By God's amazing grace, just two and one half years after Brian's death, Fran met and married a widower named Howard Joslin, combining a total of seven children, five of whom were teenagers when they married. Fran enjoys writing and mentoring young women. She serves as President of Authenticity Book House, a non-profit publishing ministry, which she and Howard started together in 2014. They aim to change the paradigm of traditional publishing to ministry as the bottom line.
