OUR FOUNDER A widow and mentor

Carolyn Moor 

girls_videosplashMore than 12 million widowed women in the United States go unnoticed in their pain and aloneness—trying to pull the pieces together, struggling to move forward. They may feel alone, but they are not alone. A woman widowed in her 30's with two young children suddenly found herself mentoring other widows. Following her appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show she realized her purpose was to reach out and help other widows get their lives back, piece by piece. Thus, Modern Widows Club was birthed and has been changing widows' lives ever since.  If #OneMillionWidows became mentors they could impact and inspire the 245 million widows worldwide. Carolyn's favorite quote is 'Teamwork makes the dream work!' Please Join us, email me your questions at info@modernwidowsclub.com and support this vital movement for women.

I was there for a very important reason and a confession to share. I wasn’t thinking about work, laborers, parades, picnics, fireworks or patriotism. Labor Day could have come and gone and I wouldn’t have even known it. I would get an extra day off of…   Read more  

Dating the 2nd Time Around- Who pays?

August 29, 2016 Joy Kirsch Love & Sex

Once again, as they do every year, my thoughts turn to dating when you’re in the 2nd Chapter of your life.  Last year, a good friend shared this blog entry written by a man about to marry a widow and his thoughts are really encouraging:  http://onefitwidow.com/marrying-a-widow/ Many women who’ve lost their spouses hope that they will eventually marry again.  To get there, it typically requires you to get out there and start dating again.  Regardless of your age,…   Read more
