OUR FOUNDER A widow and mentor

Carolyn Moor 

girls_videosplashThere are nearly 14 million widowed women in the United States, many who 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. We are the premier widow research population and the only widow mentoring and leadership organization. If one million widows became mentors they would 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.

When dad’s are missing from the family unit because of a death, Mother’s Day is often forgotten for the truly hardest working moms on earth. (And dads…   Read more
