A Christian Ministry of Widows Reaching Widows

I commend to you our sister Phoebe, who is a servant of the church in Cenchreae. So you should welcome her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the saints, and assist her in whatever matter she may require your help. For indeed she has been a benefactor of many — and of me also.                           —Romans 16:1-2

Losing a spouse is one of the most devastating events that can occur in a person’s life. Overcoming such a loss can prove quite challenging. The widow often finds herself isolated or deserted with an array of emotions and circumstances that seem overwhelming.

Her sense of family is shattered while the world seems dominated by married couples. People do not know quite how to treat her, what to say to her, or how to relate to her now that she is a widow. Therefore, many times she is just ignored or forgotten. What is the widow to do?

When your spouse dies, a part of you dies, as well. The same power that raised Jesus from the dead can resurrect the part of you that has died, creating a new life of meaning and purpose through service to God and to others. As Isaiah 43:19 proclaims: “Look, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming. Do you not see it? Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.

Phoebe Connections seeks to encourage widows by providing a place where they can connect with other women who share their experiences. With a focus on fellowship and service, Phoebe Connections helps widows overcome the loss of a husband by encouraging them to discover a new identity in Jesus Christ.

PHOEBE Connections does not provide professional counseling. We are simply women who are engaged in the

journey of widowhood and have learned from our experiences to look to Jesus Christ as our provider and sustainer
