Losing her husband to pancreatic cancer in 1998 became the catalyst that drove Pappas to wrestle with the faith question, “What does it mean to trust God—really?”
As a widow, she came to understand what God means when He says He is the husband to the widow and father to the fatherless. More than a book on recovery from grief, Widow For a Season will help individuals everywhere find their primary identity in Christ.
A registered nurse by profession, Pappas for 12 years homeschooled her two children. She is currently working on her master’s degree in ministry. She and her husband, Thomas, live in a suburb of Columbus, Ohio.
The book, which was developed out of a series of pamphlets and seminars Pappas has given over the past several years, is organized in four “seasons” – the season of singleness, the season of strength, the season of sufficiency, and the season of surrender.
Helpful study guides and discussion questions follow each chapter, ideal for individual or small-group use. The chapters also closely link to Pappas’ website, www.widowtowidow.net for more resources.
