Widow Strong Friday 5: Papa’s Story of Standing Strong, DIY Spa Scrub Video, TX Birthday and More!
Don’t you find it interesting that we collectively celebrate the warmth of Valentine love during a typically cold month? The journey of love, whether love in a relationship, community, or calling, is transformational, calling us to become our best selves. Today’s Friday 5 starts now…
1. Standing Strong: My father once told me of a community that stood strong through many Polish winters. This compelling story is shared in my latest blog post. Please click here to read. https://widowstrong.com/1661-2/ ~ Mishael, Founder Widow Strong
2. DIY Video: Thanks to Kathryn Ruff of the Janice Overbeck Real Estate Team for leading a workshop on self-care and all-natural ways to create spa experiences at home. Here’s a 5-minute video on Kathryn’s DIY quick and easy, all-natural body exfoliation scrub made from ingredients in your kitchen. It’s sure to make you feel Fabulous!
3. Galentine’s Gathering: Last Sunday Galentine’s Event was Wonderful! In all, we were able to serve 17 widows and over 20 children with lavish Valentine gift bags for widows and their children through our in-person event and mailing out care packages to those who were not able to come. Thank you to our volunteers, sponsors (Real Fake Buildings, Team Sports Ministries, and Janice Overbeck Real Estate Team) and Widow Strong members for making our February Widow Strong Gathering such a heart-warming success of sharing God’s love in practical ways!
