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.

It was the beginning of me understanding my…   Read more  

A Widow’s Cry

February 9, 2016 Carolyn Moor Stories

A Widow’s Cry  - Despite what you might think, the tears that come to me are necessary. – My tears are because I loved someone with all my heart and I can’t be with them, touch them, kiss them or hug them again. Not even once. Do you know how that feels? – I cry because I loved. I cry because I lost. I cry because I can still feel….everything. – I cry because this is so unfair…   Read more
