OUR FOUNDER A widow and mentor

Carolyn Moor was inspired by her own mentors to found MWC, a bridge from traditional grief support to the unchartered new world that is created after loss.

girls_videosplashLet's face it, maneuvering this widowed journey is real and complex. You need a mentor and so did Carolyn Moor. Once she found one, it felt as if she was guided through this widowed wilderness by an angel. Remarkable things started to happen. God's grace showed up. She discovered the 'invisible crown' she was wearing. Every tribulation is a shiny jewel. She never forgot her mentors kindness. She became a mentor herself by answering the call of her own heart to reach back, show up and be present in another widows life. Simple, humble and honest. One woman at a time, the tribe grew and is now a movement of inspiration and support to widows around the globe. A super survivor, grounded in hope and a strong example of how the human spirit can overcome trauma and bounce forward.

We don't mean to be cliché here, but it takes a village. Not any ordinary village mind you, but a tribe of extraordinary widow mentors who are a few steps ahead of this collective experience. Are you willing to reach back to others in your circle of life experience? Your community is waiting for you to create your own MWC chapter. If you build it, they will come! With 13 million widows in the U.S. and 4 million of those under 65 (according to 2014 U.S. Census Bureau), we have already seen this happen. We are the students and simultaneously, the teachers in society to bring awareness to the widow experience. Let's do this together with love, unity and grace. If you've read this far, you might be ready. The rewards will leave you feeling like you've found your sweet spot. Nothing brings joy more than giving back your wisdom.

September 29, 2014 Carolyn Moor Opinion

Occasionally I write posts in Linkedin’s Pulse section. Real news about business from business owners. So, when I received over 92,000 views on a simple post about the one kindest thing to say to a widow, I had no idea it would spur such a worldwide response. But I’m truly grateful this conversation has been sparked in such an acceptable way. The post started like this: “There she is in the supermarket aisle, the park, ball field, event,…   Read more
