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.

A Widow’s Dream

December 13, 2015 Carolyn Moor #OneMillionWidows

  – Despite what you might think, I haven’t lost all my dreams. – Although the biggest dream I had was to grow old, crazy in love, to laugh away the hours seated beside each other in two cozy rocking chairs. – When you lose your dreams, it’s gut wrenching. It’s a ship without a harbor. Hear me out. – When someone dies who is tethered to your dreams, it’s god-forsakenly unfathomable. – It takes your very breath…   Read more
