Mishael Permbski

Mishael Porembski


My name is Mishael Porembski.  In 2007, I became a widowed mother. In just five short months, I lost my husband to suicide, gave birth to our second daughter, and lost my mother to breast cancer.  I craved a holistic grief empowerment program that helped younger widows, like myself, and helped our children recover from the losses we experienced. I was tired of asking, “Why did this happen to me?” and wanted to take action, healing my mind, body, and spirit through healthy choices. I asked some widowed friends to join me, and our lives changed dramatically. Not finding a program like this, I developed 180 Your Life as a curriculum and Widow Strong as our nonprofit to provide fresh, dynamic support teams to better empower bereaved women and our grieving families. Join me as we get #StrongerTogether!
