The Undistracted Widow: Living for God after Losing Your Husband

Cornish, Carol

“I want to tell you enough of my story to assure you of my empathy…But then I want to step aside and point you to Christ.” The sorrow and grief of losing a husband can be disorienting and seem to linger indefinitely. Grown out of the author’s own experience in losing her husband, this road map of perseverance and deep devotion points clearly to the only comforter capable of healing such pain.

Product Description

Writing from a biblical perspective, Carol Cornish helps readers to discover how God is working in the midst of the deep distress of losing a spouse. She provides the reader with direction in finding true and lasting comfort in Christ. Cornish, who lost her husband of 38 years to lung cancer, encourages widows to use their widowhood for God’s glory. Ministry to widows needs to be a priority for Christian communities, and Cornish equips churches, families, and friends to come alongside those mourning the loss of a spouse.

The Undistracted Widow includes sections to help widows find renewed identity and purpose. Cornish helps readers trust in God, manage emotions, learn from both biblical and contemporary widows, rethink the past, present, and future, and prepare for what’s next. Pastors, churches, and others will benefit from practical appendices. Any woman who is grieving the loss of her husband, or who knows of someone in mourning, will find this to be a valuable resource.
