They are the most abused and marginalized people group in the world, but God's Word tells us that how we care for them is a litmus test for our Christianity. Their average age is 55, with 1/3 of them under 45. I was 47 when I was widowed in 2005. Out of the 13 million widowed people in the United States, over 11 million of them are women, and statistics say that 75% of all married women will be widowed at least once. Worldwide, there is an estimated 258 million widows, but that is just an estimate because most widows in other countries are not thought worth counting, nor given an address.
I had never heard one message about them, nor knew of any ministry specifically for them. After my  Los Angeles City Firefighter husband died, I heard God whisper: "Speak for those who can't speak for themselves." Several years later, I found out the word "widow" means "unable to speak." 
Now, 14 years later, God, Who is rich in mercy, has brought me here to this place, speaking for those who can't speak for themselves, and asking you to come alongside His widows and to see them walk in their sacred, Biblical calling. 
Many of you walked with us through that darkness, and because of your love, we still stand. Many of you have walked through your own darkness, and if statistics are right, many of you will in the future. But, what if we can change the statistics? What if the statistics are connected to obeying God's Word? It wouldn't be a first!! What if The Body of Christ stepped into its sacred calling to make sure God's widows step into theirs? 
Now... after 2 protocols, a book, 4 widow's retreats, an inaugural event for widows and their church leadership, and a booklet with Our Daily Bread, we're our own (God's own) non-profit, and I'd be honored if you joined us. Please click on the "Donate" button, and we'll see what God does!

In Christ Alone,
Susan VandePol and "Matters of Life and Breath Inc.
