  1. Losing a husband is the most difficult thing in life especially if the wife is left with young children. People in this situation could benefit from reading about how others might handle it.

    1. Well, there are a lot of books available for widows to read. I’m hopeful that someone will wish to read about Kelsey’s journey.
      Every person’s path is different. It’s important to find strategies that make sense for the person’s circumstances.
