Widow's Fire Support
I'm Julia, your Widow's Fire Host.
My life turned upside down in 2018 when my husband died.
Daily doses of love and affection were wiped out. Widow's Fire was the most powerful aspect of my grief.
5 years later, I am still fascinated by the Fire and the way it has been steering a new path.
Widow's Fire brings you closer to understanding your heart and desires. Let the heat move you forward. The spark in you is a sign of life.
You are alive.
With burning love,
2018 cancer widow at age 31,
1 month after birth of first and only child. Currently living in Toronto, Canada (2023)

I had no idea, when my husband of 20 years died, if I’d ever be happy again. But since meeting Judah, I have found joy and love again. we understand each other in a way that a person who has not lost a spouse could never understand. We have found beauty in the ashes of our Widow's Fire and a love deep enough to help us build a new family out of two that were broken.

"On Sept 21, I joined Widow's Fire because I had no understanding of what was going through my mind and my body, I met a guy here and at first our text conversations were typically sex related with a smattering of our life in general. Now, here we are, October 3 and we are officially doing the dating thing and have been for a while. You just never know..."
