Widow Strong: Your Music Matters

 In Newsletter

Dear Friends,

Y’all. Last week we had a few glitches with links to our upcoming classes and online workshops. So this week we’ve fixed the links! Thanks for your patience and my apologies for any inconvenience. Please take time to sign up for these amazing opportunities both online and in-person!

As we approach Valenine’s Day, there’s a quick video that shares how, as widows, we are called in special way…

Thank you for being on this God-adventure with us as together we are honored to empower widows and their children! Read on!


What if widowhood is it’s own unique music?

Below is a picture of my father, Janik Porembski also known as Papa, taken about 6 years ago. He passed in 2017. He was a Nazi concentration camp survivor by age 9, lost his father to a midnight Nazi-raid, raised by a widowed mom who had PTSD from being in two concentration camps, and he was not allowed to attend school in Nazi occupied Poland.

Papa became one of the best national news cameramen in the United States, flying on Air Force One, meeting four US Presidents, and was often filming national news events for decades. He taught my brother and I video production, and became a father-figure to my daughters after they lost their own father.

After his stroke, Papa moved in with us when I as a 5-year widow. He was dizzy every day and used his time to pour love into our hearts, demanded I write books (which I’d never done) and pushed me start Widow Strong.

We all still hear Papa’s music in the love we have for one another. Our time on earth is precious.
