For those of you who have been listening to this podcast from its beginning, you know Donna Marie Todd as a storyteller. She was one of the first people who graciously and generously gave her time and talent to allow me to interview her or him. Donna Marie introduced us to the wonderful art of Biblical Storytelling, and that art has been an ongoing series for me as I continue to interview Biblical Storytellers. The link to that side of Donna Marie’s life can be found here:

In this episode, Donna Marie tells us a very different sort of story. In 2011, her husband, Perrin, died, and Donna Marie became a widow and a single parent. That experience set her on an unplanned and challenging journey. However, an important and vitally needed outgrowth of that journey is a group of resources Donna Marie has developed for widows. Key among those is her book, Navigating Loss: A Survival Guide for the Newly Widowed. She also has a Navigating Loss video series and a blog and she offers private coaching and retreats. Access to all of these resources can be found on her website, A Widow’s Tale.
Donna Marie is here to share with us her experience, resources, wisdom, and, most importantly, hope!
