Getting the Most Out of This Blog

The foggy feelings and hard-to-concentrate moments of grief are reasons I am committed to keeping this blog advertisement free, uncluttered, and as simple as possible. I'm also committed to "being here" for you as a faithful, consistent resource. Lord knows you don't need another support kicked out from under you!

Even when I don't have Internet access, and am unable to update regularly, you can still visit this blog and find all sorts of useful resources and information.

Yes, you guessed it---I don't have computer or Internet access this week. But let me give you a tour of all the other things you can fiddle with to find the help and information you need.

HEADER FEATURES
Tabs---At the top of this page are tabs which open up single pages of commonly asked for information. Take a tour of the Memorial Wall, Christian Websites for Widows, my Bookstore, Need Prayer? and all the other underlined words.

SIDEBAR FEATURES
Now let me turn your attention to the right side column of this blog. It starts out with my book, Postcards from the Widows' Path, and if you'd like to order it or read more about it, all you have to do is click on the book cover. (You can also order the book with the TAB for my bookstore, but this way you have options for how to get to it). Keep scrolling down the column to read general information about the themes and their day-of-the-week set up.
