Hi, I'm Emily

One month shy of our 20th wedding anniversary, I lost Nathan unexpectedly.

We have 4 amazing children together.

I was 37, and I was shattered.

It felt like all my dreams and hopes for the future died with him.  Life became overwhelming, with mere survival at the center.

By God's grace and through intentional healing I've been able to find hope, heal my heart, and dream once again for a beautiful future.

I want to help you do the same.

Grieving as a Widow is Overwhelming 


So many new tasks and responsibilities are thrust onto your shoulders in the blink of an eye. 


I remember many times breaking down into tears out of frustration. 


Hours of YouTube How To videos, of Pinterest searches, of group questions, and asking people for input. It was unthinkable trying to navigate grief, parent four children, take care of the house, work, cook, clean, mow, and juggle it all.


I wanted one place I could go to find all the answers. 


What was I supposed to be doing? How did I learn to do new things? What worked for other people? What is "normal" grieving? What are the approximate timelines? 


I found a lot of information, but it was disparate, conflicting, confusing, and overwhelming.


The widow and grief communities are amazing. They are full of supportive, caring, accepting, and helpful people who share experiences, wins, and failures. 


But it wasn't enough.


Brave Widow was born with the idea that we can bring these things together. We can create a community of connection, hope, education, and eliminate much of the confusion and overwhelm.


It is possible to heal, find hope, and dream again for the future.


My goal is to help widows do just that.
