"It was like a banquet for my soul." That's what I told Pastor Ron after our 180 Widows Team meeting last night. We laughed, cried, supported one another and shared grief empowerment strategies with in-person and virtual widowed members! We host our meetings on the Zoom platform, so widows with little kiddos and widows from other states can join us via video conferencing! It's a Dream Come True! Here's a sneak peak of our 180U videos (chapter 2) that we will use for the next 12 months. THANK YOU to those who donated to provide the funds to start this 2018 widows empowerment team! We couldn't have done it without you believing in us!
