Many women see their widowhood through a lens of despair, as a journey where challenges daunt the soul and loneliness haunts the heart.
In Where Hope Blooms Virginia Jelinek presents another lens, encouraging women to see widowhood as a hope-filled journey full of God-invitations. Embracing the invitations will illuminate the widow’s spirit and gently transform her heart, leading her to live whole—to feel joy flowing through her spouse-less life.
Widows will relate to the stories the author tells, narratives based on her twice-widowed life. Along with each chapter’s narrative, explorative opportunities are presented, inviting the reader to consider select Scriptures and respond to questions designed to apply the truths gleaned. The book’s exploration feature makes it an excellent book to study in community with other widows, offering them a safe place to share their own stories and to grow together.

WW5 Stars Out Of 5Where Hope Blooms: The Widow's Path to WholenessNovember 21, 2017WWQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0As a widow myself, I have been ministered to through this book. I read many other books on widowhood but none fulfilled the need I felt for a book that would also include the possibility for group discussion and sharing. The journey from grief to wholeness is not an easy one but Virginia has offered hope by sharing her experiences and emotions and by including very thought provoking exercises that helped me along my journey toward healing. Whether the reader uses this as an individual tool or is a part of a support group, this book is a wonderful resource.
