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 Unexpected Independence Day

July 5, 2016 Joy Kirsch Legal & Financial

A widow does not plan to lead an independent life. She doesn’t plan to lose her spouse; she plans to live happily ever after, forever. So when the unexpected happens, how is she going to learn to live independently, especially while grieving? The death of a spouse diminishes a person’s ability to think clearly. Widows, according to experts, lose as much as 20 percent of their brain power when they are grieving. As a result, widows experience “widow…   Read more
