Joined 7 years ago from Southern New Jersey - Delaware Valley
My name is Deborah Smart and I'm known to all as One Smart Lady. I am putting the finishing touches on a book, "Joy Comes Through the Mourning" which will be published April 2011. It is about my journey through the many stages of widowhood.
In August 2008, I remarried after 4 years of widowhood. My husband was also a widower whose wife died after a three year battle with lung cancer. We were both cancer survivors, although we did not have cancer, we lived with cancer and survived the effects it had on our families.
I am a writer, publishing consultant, a Certified Biblical Counselor and an activist for Jesus Christ. I believe through him we can live a joyous life inspite out our day to day obstacles. Even though I have remarried, it doesn't take away the four years that I lived the 5 Stages of Grief. I still have many moments thinking about my late husband and the life we had together.
This HubPage - Joy Comes Through... has been given to me by God to build an inner-active community of healthy widows and widowers. He has given me a ministry named the "Crossroads Ministry Group" as my vehicle to serve those learning to rebuild a life without their spouse.
Come join me on the journey of finding Joy as you encounter your obstacles. Let's share our experiences openly and honestly. Through face the reality of loss we can overcome the obstacles that are placed in our paths.
