Widow's Might :  Embracing Life after the Loss of Your Spouse

   
Author: Kim Knight 

What happens when your husband dies unexpectedly in the prime of your life and marriage?
 
In Widow’s Might, Kim Knight shares her experience when her husband suddenly and unexpectedly died at fifty-six years old. In one day, Kim went from planning her future with her best friend to planning a funeral, searching for passwords to online accounts, trying to return to normal when things were no longer normal, and finding God in the middle of trauma and grief.
 
Widow’s Might is for young or middle-aged widows and those who love them. The book helps those who’ve experienced a tragic loss to better understand the confusing and unpredictable path of grief as well as the challenges and promise of new growth.
 
Learning to embrace a life different from the one you imagined isn’t something you’re going to master by the end of year one, when your family and friends think you should, or when you hope you might. You can deeply embrace and honor your marriage to your late spouse and still find contentment, happiness, and maybe even love in the days ahead.
 
Widow’s Might will give you the strength and wisdom to discover new life on the other side of death. Look toward what God has in store for you. And—every once in a while—spend the day in your pajamas and eat popcorn for dinner. It’s okay.
 
Review:   
In my thirty-four years as a wealth manager, I’ve helped many women who have survived the loss of a spouse or partner. Together we work through the turmoil to make the best financial decisions at one of the most difficult times of their lives. Grief, fear, and uncertainty make choices incredibly challenging. Yet finances are only one aspect of their lives that have completely changed, and Kim’s book is a terrific resource. Her words are filled with the warmth of a comforting friend and can help anyone navigate the new and disorienting circumstances of widowhood. I highly recommend Widow’s Might to anyone who has lost a spouse.

I spent thirty-five years on Wall Street and during that time I never met a person quite like Dale, who had the perfect balance between business life and family life. Much of that balance was because of his truly special relationship with his wife, Kim. After Dale died, I sent Kim a note which read, I can count on one hand—no, make that one finger—the number of wholesalers’ wives who were a bigger part of their spouse’s business than you were with Dale. Widow’s Might is the story of how one widow moved forward to embrace life’s challenges, to find joy in devastating circumstances, and to encourage others sharing the journey to get back in the game.
Dr. Bob Froehlich, former vice chairman of Deutsche Asset Management

I can’t think of anyone better to write a book on how to navigate such a complex topic that none of us is particularly well equipped to handle. Nevertheless, in Widow’s Might Kim shares the unexpected journey she had to navigate as a reflection of the kind of person she is—and we can all aspire to be. She shows the very human struggles associated with losing your partner, your friend, and your love. She asks the difficult questions that any person would have but may not readily admit. Yet, she also follows those questions with a determination to use this very painful chapter in her life as another means to show how her faith in Christ enables her to be a beacon for those around her.
Doug Davis, senior vice president, industry-leading Fortune 100 company

As a seasoned financial advisor, I’ve been blessed with the privilege of assisting a number of clients as they’ve traveled the uncharted and difficult journey which Kim so transparently and openly shares in her amazing book. Kim answers the two basic questions that I’ve been asked repeatedly through the years: 1) “Is this how I am supposed to feel?” and 2) “What did your other clients do when this happened to them?” Every person takes a little different route as they navigate the emotional, physical, psychological, spiritual, and financial challenges that come all bundled up in the overwhelming event of losing a husband/friend/spiritual partner. Kim shares in a powerful and effective way how she has grieved, cried, grown, and even learned to celebrate life again on this road that no one ever wants to travel. Widow’s Might is an incredible guide for anyone who has lost their spouse, and it’s also an excellent resource for those of us who are the friends, family members, and professional advisors to those who have experienced this type of life-changing loss.

As a pastor I am always looking for practical resources for ministry opportunities. I was hoping that this might be one, but I was worried that it would be more of a processing tool for Kim to work through her grave loss. So, I was very pleased to see that this is not only a riveting account of her journey through this sudden loss but also an extremely relevant and practical book. The way Kim describes her journey and the way she connects it to practical “takeaways” and lessons is spectacular. Widow’s Might will be a for-sure resource as a pastor, and I will recommend it for all those who are forced to grieve the loss of a dear spouse. Thank you, Kim!

I was honored to be in the room with the family when they said their final good-byes to their father, brother, and loving husband. Throughout the shocking and heartbreaking process, it was remarkable how emotionally aware and spiritually strong Kim was. It came as no surprise to me that she felt nudged to write about her experience. Widow’s Might offers honest and thoughtful guidance to others who have experienced loss.
