Creating awareness on resources for widows.
Welcome to Embracing Widowhood!
My name is Marisela Marquez, but my friends call me Mari. I am an author, widow, mother, and founder of embracingwidowhood.com and The Embracing Widowhood Podcast. This site is meant to help those who have lost their spouse, domestic partner, or significant other to death. This site contains many resources that may help widowed women navigate Widowhood.
I have researched multiple organizations Nationwide, read countless books, and tried different modalities to help me in my journey as a widow. Now I want to share these resources with you. I also want to highlight the great organizations assisting widowed women. Remember that grief is not linear, and everyone grieves differently. I hope this site and its content can help you seek support, find hope, and navigate Widowhood.
