Ministry Description: When a woman becomes widowed, everything in her life changes. The grief journey is frustrating, and exhausting for the widow as well as those ministering to her. Kentucky Joy In The Mourning is a team of widows from around the State of Kentucky. Through our personal grief journeys we can testify that God is still working in our lives and life can still be very good. Our team offers support and encouragement to widows through practical resources, regional conferences/ connection meetings, and small care groups where we discuss grief and how to navigate this season of life. We also offer workshops for local churches to develop intentional support ministries for widows in their local communities.

Prayer Request: Pray for our team members as we reach out to other widows. Sharing our stories means being transparent about our own grief journey which often opens old wounds. Pray that God continues to guide and direct our paths and protects our hearts.
Also pray that God will guide our team to “think outside the box” to reach widows during COVID19. This is a critical time for many widows who are struggling financially, socially, emotionally and spiritually. Many are isolated from all friends, family and church family. They need our support now more than ever, but COVID 19 restrictions prevent us from reaching them in traditional ways.
