FAITH NEWS SERVICE – United States—Friday, February 24, 2023
Mother and daughter author team Sharon Engram and Lori Rohlinger, who have each lost a spouse, celebrates the one year anniversary of the release of their book, Surviving Widowhood, with a celebratory re-launch!
Through their book, Surviving Widowhood Sharon and Lori minister to widows and widowers, sharing how they each were able to trust God with their grief and healing of their broken hearts.
Sharon and Lori invite you to step away from the overwhelming demands and grief-wrenching spaces of life for a few moments each day and bask in the rich goodness of Jesus and precious love He showers upon you. In Surviving Widowhood: 40 Devotions of Hope for Widows, your grieving heart will be comforted, your tears will be seen, and your soul will be nourished.
Sharon and Lori’s, Surviving Widowhood is available for download for free on Amazon through February 25, 2023. Surviving Widowhood is highly rated by those who have purchased the book. Here’s what some of the reviewers have said:
“I was given this book by a friend. I lost my husband a year ago this coming August 1st and were given quite a few devotionals and/or books to read. This is THE one that most hit home for me. Every night I would read one of the chapters and each night that subject hit home for me and I was able to cry and reflect on their views as well as why God is there for me every step of the way. This is the book for you or to give to a friend in need.”
A treasure for new or seasoned widows.
“Surviving Widowhood: 40 Devotions of Hope is a treasure, whether you’re a new or more seasoned widow. Sharon and Lori offer validation and wisdom in bite-size pieces through authentically sharing their widow’s journey and grounding it in the grace of Scripture. This devotional takes you beyond a “daily dose” to consider your own story of loss gently and prayerfully. As a widow of more than six years, I highly recommend this book for personal use or to give as a gift.”
