Winter Devotional Available Today!

By grace, I walk forward.

A Widow’s Might original director, Kit Hinkle, had a vision of getting our Bible-based articles into the hands of widows everywhere. You can read about her vision here. Our articles were arranged in a daily devotional format in an easy-to-read paperback book. These are available on Amazon. Our team worked so hard to get these devotionals out in a seasonal format to coordinate with the four seasons of the year. By grace, these devotionals can assist in your walk forward.

These devotionals make great gifts to give to the newer widow, one she can reach for in the middle of the night for encouragement. You can order one for yourself and a couple extra to keep in your car for those times God brings another widow along your path. They will be blessed by your generosity, and you will be blessed to help another on her journey. By grace, these devotionals can assist others in walking forward.

Were You Aware?

Were you aware this ministry has an entire year’s worth of daily devotionals in a book? You can have encouragement each morning with your cup of coffee or tea and your prayer journal. Or buy several extra copies to share with widows you meet along your journey. The books are set up by the seasons of the year so right now we have just begun the summer devotional book. These are the books we sell at our retreats and conferences.

These daily devotionals, entitled For the Love of HER Life, can be purchased right from our website! A word fitly spoken, like in our verse, can be just like gold and silver to a hurting heart.

Here’s how to do it:

steps to order devotional

 

So it is very simple.

Just go to our website www.anewseason.net  ,

click “shop” at the top row of tabs,

click “books”,

find the devotional for the season you want to purchase,

and then click the link to the amazon order page.

It is that simple.

Do not be confused by that “out of stock” that appears on the page – that just is there because of the way the “shopping cart” was set up. We do not carry the devotional books in a warehouse of our own. Amazon prints them on demand whenever someone orders one.

Order yours today! And a couple extra for the other sisters you meet along this journey. Bring those words fitly spoken to a hurting widow’s heart. Maybe that heart is YOURS, maybe it is for a friend.

Order today!

We hope you are blessed by the writings from your friends here at A Widow’s Might.

Our Autumn Devotional

If you haven’t yet put our daily devotional on your nightstand, you may not know how encouraging it is to be able to reach over late at night and grab hold of our support when you need it.

But, don’t take our word on it. Read what those who have purchased the devotional had to say on their Amazon reviews. Then go here to order your copy of the Autumn devotion before September starts, and let the daily comfort begin.

Here is what our readers have to say:

“Five Stars-  The best wisdom for hurting spouses. Love both these books, Autumn, and Summer Edition, they are a true blessing!!!”

“This has been extremely helpful in my new season of life. A big thank you to the writers!”

“A great devotional. I am using it every day.”

“What a Godsend! I get the daily blog posts by email and they have made my grief journey so much lighter. When I saw the girls had put together a book, I ordered 2 copies so I could share one with other widows at my church. What a Godsend!”

“Good inspiration-  As there is no ‘cookie-cutter’ scenario in being a widow, this book meets the needs of the readers very well with the authors being in varied situations themselves. Good inspiration.”

Best book I have found! This book as been one of the most “hope-filled” I have found. After losing a spouse, there are so many emotions, feelings and new responsibilities that it can be overwhelming. Every devotion is written by a widow telling us how she survived her first days, months and years. That hope is just the encouragement I need to face each new day. For the Love of HER Life has helped me so much, I have ordered numerous copies to share with other widows.”

“LOVE IT!!! I loved this book. I looked forward to reading it everyday. Every devotional touched my heart and encouraged me.”

“Such An Encouragement! Wonderful articles of encouragement for widows who are struggling. Would recommend it to anyone!”

“It has been the greatest blessing in my life- I was deep into fresh grief when some kind soul, (I don’t remember who it is), forwarded the site: “A Widows Might.” I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the appreciation I feel. It has been the greatest blessing in my life, outside of the word of God. Women who have “been there, done that” honestly sharing the whole truth, including the agonies. An absolute Rock to my soul, reminding me that God is able even when I couldn’t believe it possible to go on. Don’t leave home without it, and when home, find strength and compassion in these pages. What a blessing to me! Thank You, Lord, for these women.”

“It is a good book to have in your widow reading material. This book is helpful because it was written by widows. Not every thing in it will apply to all, but for the most part it has someone in it for all widows… It is a good book to have in your widow reading material. Something will help you or be helpful to pass along as God steers you to others going through the grief journey.”

“So thankful for this faith-based resource for widows. None of us choose this journey but having words of comfort for each day makes the journey a little easier.”

“A book by those who truly understand! This is a wonderful book for those walking the grief journey or even for those who know someone who is and want to better understand the journey. Each of these devotions are written by women who have been there. They understand the crazy mix of emotions that comes with widowhood. The words they write will comfort, encourage, inspire, and help you know that others understand. It makes a great book for churches and counselors to have on hand for new widows!”

Ladies, our ministry is “grass roots”. It is fed and developed by women who love the Lord and walk a “trust-walk” with Him through volunteering.  This devotional was created and made available to you by this team.  Please prayerfully consider supporting us and purchasing your copy today.

A Reader Writes…

Recently we had a lovely reader write us after reading one of our articles. She had such a transparent heart, we asked if we could share an excerpt from her letter and some of our response. You may find yourself in some of the thoughts she is sharing. We post this here as a reminder, you are not alone in your feelings! Do you have a question you would like to ask? Email us at admin@anewseason.net

***

Reading today’s message was  a step in healing! I know I have to let go. My hurt, disappointment, and anger at people and family who have let me down… It hurts so deeply, on top of your widowhood, to be excluded because they are uncomfortable! … But I need to have family and friends. I have already had my biggest loss imaginable! I am growing weary and more lonely. Widowhood is trying enough. Scripture speaks of God being my husband now but He doesn’t physically eat with me, sleep beside me, hold me in His arms, go out with me, give me physical hugs, talk to me verbally, fix broken stuff, take the car to the garage, take out the garbage! …  So when there is no one to love me, how does God help me? I just have to believe it. But it is so abstract! … I need to feel God in a solid, real way! It feels superficial. I thought God would show up concrete, in my friends to comfort me in the darkest night of my soul. I need God in a realistic way. I do lots of volunteering, and reach out to others hurting, go to a small group, counselling, and support group . But I feel like I’m chasing the wind.

Thank you so much for writing out your thoughts in such a way, and sharing them with us.  Many of us have had similar thoughts go through our heads — we need a “husband” who takes out the trash and protects us in storms. I can relate to that! Unfortunately, it seems to be “normal” in many widows’ lives.

I personally struggle with wanting God to respond the way I want Him to respond in my timing.  I find it helpful to read the Psalms.  The authors let God know how frustrated they are.  How unjust the world is. How wicked people succeed. But it seems the Psalmists always come back to what is true about God. That is where I have to land every time.  I have to cling to truth, not feeling.  I love my feelings and want to grasp them with all my might… That right there is my hardest struggle.  My feelings get hurt, my feelings are not validated by others, my feelings say that I must not be loved.  But God loves me so much He allowed His only Son to suffer, bleed, and die a horrible death FOR ME. For you.  That is the truth.
If He does nothing else for me, that is more than I deserve right there.
Grace.
Eternal life…
I love it when I find little nuggets in Scripture.  The story of Anna in Luke 2 amazes me.  She was an old widow and had only been married for seven years. Now at eighty-four, she was known for her devotion to prayer and worship.  That right there is what I want to be known for…
If she got married as a teen, like it may have been back then, then she lived maybe sixty years completely focused on worship and prayer.  I have a long way to go in order to be known for that, for sure.  She wasn’t known for anything else.  That puts my life in perspective.  All this other stuff is like icing on the cake.  The most important stuff is right there.
So how do we live this journey with grace? I think we do it like Anna.  It sounds so simple but I know it isn’t. We expect so much out of Christians, don’t we? We honestly believe they will want to support us but they fail us. We honestly want to believe God will take care of us, but bad things keep coming our way. So all I can do is keep trusting God when everything around makes no sense.
Thanks for putting your thoughts into words. Have you seen our devotionals for sale on our website?  It is one way we find to put our thoughts on Scripture as we go through our days.

We are so happy to announce our

newest devotional book

is now available!

 

aNew Season Ministries announces the release of A Widow’s Might latest devotional book, For the Love of HER Life: Spring Edition through Amazon.com.  The Spring Edition has daily devotions to encourage you throughout the spring from March 1 to May 31. Here are more devotionals to inspire and guide you or your loved one along the grief journey.

You may or may not be a widow, but most likely you KNOW one.  If each of you reading this would get one or two copies to give away as gifts to a hurting widow, then this ministry would reach even more widows with the comfort we all have received from Scripture.

We ask you to minister to others as we do.  Here’s a suggestion, have an extra copy in the car to give to someone in need.  How many times have you met someone at the dentist office or the grocery store and wish you had something to give her which would encourage her?

We love our readers and can’t wait to have this new book in the hands of each and every one.

Did you remember to put your Amazon review in on our Summer, Autumn, Winter editions?  Thank you!
