Digital Courses

As an Educator with a Master of Arts in Teaching, Certified Grief Counselor, and Widow Coach, I personally understand the benefits of learning how to navigate the journey of grieving, healing, & living after loss, through digital courses.

Digital courses offer flexibility, allowing you to learn at your own pace and in the comfort of your own environment, which can be especially beneficial during times of grief when your routines may be disrupted.

My digital courses provide a wealth of resources, including videos, exercises, and worksheets, that address various aspects of grief and healing, catering to different learning styles and needs.

Also, they cover a range of topics beyond just coping with loss, such as self-care practices, managing emotions, finding meaning after loss, and rebuilding your life, offering a holistic approach to healing.

My Testimony

On December 16, 2018, less than 24-hours after I took my husband to the hospital for a sickle cell crisis, he unexpectedly died.

He left myself and our daughters, who were ages 4 and 7 at the time, to pick up the pieces.

The day he died, I had $500 to my name, of which I found in his wallet when I collected his belongings from the hospital.

The day after his death, there was an eviction notice placed on our apartment door.

Not only did I have to plan a funeral, but, I had less than 30 days to figure out where my children and I would live.

Before the 30 days was up, the only vehicle that we had was repossessed.

“Major life transitions following sudden death” was definitely the title of the season I had entered into.

As I begin to figure out my mess of a life, I started looking for communities and safe spaces that could help me.

I desperately needed a person, space, or community that understood sudden widowhood, my range of emotions, and also my desire to LIVE again - not simply exist - in spite of ALL that I had been through.

I never found that space or community that had exactly what I needed.

Either they encouraged the idea that life was over because of widowhood.

Or they acted as if you could just move “on” like you never experienced a life altering loss.

So what do you do when you can’t find the exact space or community that you need?

You create it yourself!

Or at least that’s what I did.

That is exactly how “Redefining Widowhood” was created.

I knew if it was exactly what I needed, then it was exactly what other wives - who suddenly became widows - needed as well.

On that note, I’m sorry that you’re here but glad to have you.
