Jen Lake never expected her pastor-husband to die—in front of her eyes or in front of their church. She never planned to be a young widow with three small children. And she never anticipated finding love again …
Today at The Messy Table, Jen is sharing her unexpected journey with grief, as well as a surprising catalyst for continued healing. Now, having been remarried for over a decade, having raised three incredible kids to adulthood, and having a (still) strong relationship with Christ, there is much to learn from her life after loss.
“When I allowed myself to feel a lot of the feelings, I was able to grieve well. And in grieving well, I’ve been able to heal through the process.” —Jen Lake
