Just in case you’re not sure, or fearful of how you can step out and attend a conference for “widows”.  We want to encourage you with these wonderful previous conference attendee testimonials.

I left Ohio with a grief-laden, raw heart on a cold February morning 2015 – 9 months after suddenly losing my husband. I was leaving my 4 children behind to fly halfway across the country to attend a conference of strangers. Brave? Not really  Desperate? Yes, very. But more than anything I was surrendering, surrendering to this new journey that was suddenly cast upon me. Widowhood. How I hated that word.. I still do, but what I found was that I was not alone. The leaders of a New Season/Widow’s might embraced each one of us as if we were old friends. They truly want to help bring healing and hope to your brokenness – not just for one weekend, but for as long as you need them. No matter how you lost your beloved, THEY understand. More importantly, they know Who to point you to even in your hurt and anger. Jesus. I don’t regret for one second the sacrifice I made to attend. I left with a renewed purpose and a whole new circle of “social network” friends that are only a few keystrokes, and thought away.  I plan to attend again.

I attended ANew Season conference just six weeks after my husband passed in February 2015. It took everything I had to get there, but I thank God I did. This ministry and these women started my journey to healing. Though everyone has a different story and may be in a different season of loss, being surrounded by other women who understand the pain of losing their husband, somehow, brought comfort and strength. I believe the Lord places people in our paths as His hands and heart here on earth. The ladies at ANew Season were His hands and heart for me during that time. I am forever grateful.

Attending the aNew Season conference in Myrtle Beach was one of the best things I did for myself as a widow. It blessed me so much that I couldn’t wait to sign up for the conference in Dallas and took a widow friend with me! There is a precious bond between all the women attending these conferences that you will not find anywhere else…a “knowing” each other’s hearts in a way that others cannot share. Go! You will not regret it!

    Just wondering what connections there might be to the retreat from the airport.

      Hi Patricia, you can get either a local cab or SuperShuttle from the airport. Looking forward to meeting you!

    I am going to try and get off from work. I have to check my days with my principal, but I have been reading about the ladies’ experience at these wonderful events, and I really want to come. My husband died a year ago in December, and though people have been kind, it’s hard to find support where I fit. We had been single for so long, then we met when I returned home. We had only been married 2 1/2 years. Now the dream is gone, and I am alone all again at 51. I couldn’t get myself to church much the first year, but I am going now and started a SS class for younger women at a little country church where my dad is the pastor. I am looking forward to the fellowship.

      Hi Christi,
      I am so sorry for your loss! Everyone’s story is unique and yet we do understand. I can’t begin to tell you how helpful it was for me personally to meet other Christian widows. I was a little concerned at first that it might be hard to be around others in so much pain but it was quite the opposite. I was so encouraged by seeing God’s faithfulness in each woman’s life. I really hope you will be able to join us. Praying for you! Sheryl
