Gail Ruth Peterson Helps Widows and Widowers Continue to Go for their Goals after Spouses’ Deaths

Gail Ruth Peterson helps women unite to accomplish their goals after their spouses' deathsGail Ruth Peterson, along with her new husband, Mike, is the Director and Co-Founder of The Widow’s Peek, Inc., a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization which offers resources and support for widows and widowers around the world. At the helm of the organization, Mrs. Peterson is responsible for writing curriculum to help widows and widowers realize there is still something for them to do after a spouse’s death. She is also currently in charge of writing a training program, and of coordinating and overseeing monthly events. She is also in the process of a newsletter with encouraging stories.

Mr. & Mrs. Peterson were inspired to become involved in the profession by the experiences that they encountered after they each became widowed in 2008. After participating in a grief program, Mrs. Peterson took a life coaching course and felt a need for a widows’ program. Mrs. Peterson is personally involved in grief ministry and is gifted in the area of writing and art. She has written a number of books: “Who am I without Him?”; “Kimmie Meets Jesus”; “Pete’s Move to Grandma and Grandpa”; “Jacob Wins a Soccer Game”; and “Cadin’s Heavenly Father.”

Since having served as an agent of positive change in the lives of many, Mrs. Peterson attributes her success to God, seeing the needs of others, and wanting her life to be useful. She is not afraid to try new things or make mistakes. In looking forward to a bright future, Mrs. Peterson wants to travel to various areas in Africa, and have more opportunity to share the facts of a widow’s life in the U.S. She believes that there is a healthy way to be healed and move on, and she wants to make her resources more known.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.

    I must say you’ve done a superb job with this.

    Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Internet explorer.
    Excellent Blog!

    I was wondering if you ever considered changging
    the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love
    what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with iit better.
    Youve ggot an awful lot of text for only having one
    or 2 images. Maybe you could space itt out
    better?

    My husband was in the armed forces and lost his life fighting in Afghanistan. I have been in therapy ever since because we never got the chance at a good life. We were married in July 2013 and he succumbed in October due to injuries caused by an IED blast. This cause is definitely one that we should continue to fight for, because it is extremely tough for families to move forward after losing a loved one that way.
