Recommended Reading - Concerning Widowhood: Insights for the Newly Widowed Christian Woman

I am neither widowed nor a woman, but I read "ConcerningWidowhood: Insights for the Newly Widowed Christian Woman" on the recommendation of a dear friend. I am so thankful that this book was brought to my attention. The lessons in this book are practical, powerful, insightful and inspirational. The path to healing that Mrs. Woods outlines in this book would serve as guideposts for any person trying to navigate their way through life while facing almost any loss or challenge.

The book is easy to read, yet thorough and comprehensive. She has identified "The Five F's" which are areas of concern that are crucial to focus on in the initial stages of widowhood. I found that these 5 areas are not just chosen randomly as some similar lists are, but are indeed vital areas a person must focus on to put their life on a solid footing. Also, the Biblical principles and Bible verses that are found throughout the book are both useful and serve to edify the mind and spirit.

I hope that this book which is specifically written for widows, is widely read by any person who may have suffered a loss, lost their way, or simply needs an inspirational reminder of what path to follow towards finding, spiritual and mental strength. Hopefully this is the first in a series of books directed towards other audiences who are also in search of a plan for establishing a firm spiritual foundation and practical wisdom to lead a purpose-filled life. I highly recommend this book to all and hope to hear more from this writer again in the very near future.  

Angela Lane Woods holds a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Master of Professional Writing in creative and applied writing. She's done freelance commercial writing on a part-time basis for many years. Until now she had put her own personal writing projects on hold in order to accommodate a series of life challenges, not the least of which was the loss of her soulmate and beloved husband of 15 years, Danny, in 2004 to a massive hemorrhagic stroke. 

She founded DAP, Danny's Angel Publishing, in 2009 in loving memory of the span of life that they spent together. In 2012, she was blessed to marry George and together they continue a writing legacy both jointly and individually that they pray will bless generations to come.

I am a male christian who cannot relate to being a widow. However, I have read this book as well and found it to be profoundly insightful, spritually uplifting and personally edifying. I would recommend this book to anyone who is on a journey to spiritual maturity and has experienced a loss of a loved one.
