About the Book:
Many of us in the body of Christ are living below our privileges as sons and daughters of God. We yearn for more in our experience with Him but don’t know what’s missing. In A Widow’s Might, Judy Knox reveals the missing element and explains how to get it.

Losing her husband due to complications following heart surgery could have been devastating. Instead, Judy’s ten weeks with him in the hospital ICU became a turning point, where she turned from her own strength to God’s. And when after fifty-one years, she suddenly found herself alone, she realized she was not alone at all. God was walking the path with her.

Judy will help you get more out of your relationship with God by showing you how to:
  • hear and know God’s voice
  • infuse your life with the power of the Holy Spirit
  • enjoy your freedom as a new creation in Christ
  • conquer negative thoughts and emotions
  • win your spiritual battles

Her stories illustrate these serious truths in a light-hearted way. Whether you’re a new believer or a seasoned Christian, the fresh insights in Judy’s message will energize your walk with God.

My review:
Judy Knox shares her experience after being a married woman for most of her life and thinking she had a healthy faith to realizing duringa  medical crisis that healthy faith did not equate to a healthy relationship with her Lord and Savior. From the opening chapters in which the author deals with the eventual passing of her husband to her journey to joy, Knox writes of her gradual transformation into a woman of God who delights in knowing Him and being known.

Each chapter opens with a thematic verse, a discovery about its relevance and background such as why light is such an integral part of growth, discipline in developing uninterrupted intimate time with the Lord, and learning to hear, see, and rely on Him everywhere at even the seemingly most insignificant moments.

Just as importantly, Knox did not leave her husband behind as she began life anew and looked to the future. She did not dwell in the past, or make a shrine to his memory, but she did keep him in her heart and thoughts, even considering what he would have done or advised in a given situation.

The lessons she shares about walking as a faithful Christian growing more spiritually aware and mature include guarding our hearts and minds, our words, the example we are to others, even in our thoughts and resulting actions.

Included is a list of books and articles with comments about them in a Resources section.
Good for anyone who wants to develop a closer relationship with God.
