A Widow's Journey: Reflections on Walking Alone

Have you recently lost your husband? Are there days when you feel so terribly alone—and that no one else could possibly understand?

Author Gayle Roper understands. As a recent widow herself, Gayle writes:

So who am I now that there's only one place at the pillow with a head dent, one damp towel after a shower. There's only one toothbrush in the holder. The seat is never left up anymore.

I can still write Mrs. in front of my name, but I'm no longer in a marriage relationship. You need two people for a marriage, and there's only me.

Is there only you? Then join Gayle as she draws on her emotions during the loss of her beloved husband, Chuck, and offers you a compassionate devotional to encourage you through your darkest days. Gayle knows a widow's pain is deep. But she also knows God's love is deeper still. And it's in His love you'll find your deepest comfort.

About the author

Gayle Roper rejoices every day that she gets to be a writer because she's in love with story. Even on the days that words rebel and have to be coerced onto the paper, there is nothing else she'd rather do. When readers like her work, it's like God says, "See? I knew what you were wired to do." When her books win awards like the Carol Award or the RITA Award, the Holt Medallion or the Reviewer's Choice Award and the Inspirational Readers Choice Award, it's icing on the cake. When she can turn life's difficulties onto life affirming titles like A Widow's Journey and Prayers for a Widow's Journey, she has a thankful heart. Imagine her delight when she was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by both American Christian Fiction Writers and Romantic Times Magazine. And she gets to teach others how to write at writers conferences too. She spends a lot of time smiling.
