    Relationships With the Dead

    Relationships With the Dead

    Today's Widow Cast podcast was recorded live while broadcasting on video to my free Facebook group:  Widows Empowering Widows.  In our group, conversations had come up around the feeling that the relationship with their spouse who had passed on was gone and no more.  On the contrary, relationships are all about how we think about the other person.  Because those relationships are part of who we are, they can live on even as we move through the grief process.  Find out how on today's episode.   You can reach out to me at joann@joannthelifecoach.com  Check out the subscription membership at https://widowcoachingcenter.com

    Ep 147 Widow Thoughts

    Ep 147 Widow Thoughts

    What are you thinking as a widow?  About you?  About your loss?  About your life?  About your money?  About all your external relationships?  Our thoughts often are all over the place.  Sometimes our brain is telling us thoughts that make us feel awful or fearful.  I think many thoughts are "thought errors."  You are not at the mercy of every thought your brain fires at you!  Learn more in this podcast about what "thought errors" are how to deal with them.  email:  Joann@JoannTheLifeCoach.com  Website:  http://joannthelifecoach.com

    Ep 144 How Long Will Your Money Last?

    Ep 144 How Long Will Your Money Last?

    When your spouse passed away, did you wonder, "How long will the money last until I run out?"  Did you struggle with money issues even as you were consumed with grief?  For most of us, we think we are going to become a bag lady.  I speak very openly from a place of complete authenticity to share how I felt and the fact that you CAN be okay.  There are ways you can build your own support.  email:  Joann@Joannthelifecoach.com   Website:  https://joannthelifecoach.com  Widow Coaching Center:  https://widowcoachingcenter.com

With appreciation!

Joann is authentic, realistic, and humane. Her reflections are wide-ranging, and provide reassurance during a challenging life transition. Even when the actual topic isn't specific to my experience, I appreciate the humor and humility she brings to all of us walking a similar path.

Joann is amazing for any widow

Joann has helped me survive and grow through a year and a half of widowhood. She is inspirational and comforting. So glad I found her!

Wow!

I am grateful I found Widow Cast! I have recommended it to all my widow friends. I plan to tell my church’s Bereavement Group, as well. Thank you for your generous heart, wanting to help those of us that others do not understand.
