Publisher's Description

Joyce Rogers has walked the path of widowhood since late 2005 when her husband of fifty-four years, renowned pastor Adrian Rogers, passed away.

Grace for the Widow is her firsthand account of how God holds a woman’s hand on this journey through the fog of loss. Her insights address both the profound and practical. Rogers recounts her grief in touching detail and how she called on the Lord and His promises from Scripture for strength. She also encourages readers with useful tips on staying healthy, keeping a positive attitude, reaching out to friends, and recognizing God’s continuing plan for those who have lost their husband.

Poignantly, Grace for the Widow concludes with two helpful appendices–"The Names of God" by Adrian Rogers and Joyce’s own "The Treasure of God’s Word."

Author Letter

Dear Friends:

This book is about a journey—a journey through the “fog” experienced by the widow. Having experienced this journey, I want to share with other widows the assurance that this “fog” will lift and that the piercing ache in the heart will diminish.

I want to point other widows to their greatest source of comfort and strength—the living and written Word of God. I want to share some timeless truths that have guided me through this darkest night of my soul. I want to point them to some of the names of God that will strengthen their faith and help them to pray in faith, beginning with Jehovah Saboath—God’s special name for widows, which means the LORD of Hosts, Who will fight my battles for me. (Isaiah 54:5)

Life is so mundane and daily, so I want to also give some practical pointers for dealing with the daily round of life as the widow journeys through the “fog.” I want to share about help for financial, friendship and health needs.

I have been there. I’ve cried out to God, “Help me, help me.” And He did. I’ve asked the question, “Who am I now that he is gone?” I want to share with others the help that Jesus can be today and the hope He will give for tomorrow—that He is sufficient for all their needs, if they only trust Him.

I’ve been to the grave and I know he isn’t there. I want to share how others can learn to live by faith in a real world—a world in which things don’t always turn out the way we wish.

Yes, I want to introduce them to the One, Who was my Guide through the “fog of loss”—the LORD Jesus Christ. I want to assure them that if they hold on to His hand, He will guide them through the “fog.”

This group of women are so needy! I have found this help and hope in Jesus Christ. I want them to know this too.

In Jesus’ wonderful name,

Joyce (Mrs. Adrian) Rogers
