My story

I am Martha Kyoshaba Twinamasiko, I was widowed at 31 going on 32 after seven years of marriage. I have walked the journey of loss and grief. I have also climbed the mountain of recovery. In that journey, there was one key factor that helped me – friends! Those who had been widowed before me, after me, and those who had not walked the journey but simply stood by me, prayed, and walked with me. Armed with God’s command to comfort others and with the help I had received from friends, I chose to be a friend of widows. I remarried after seven years of widowhood. I am thankful for God’s mercies. I still reach out with a message of comfort and hope for the widowed. Hence the Friends of Widows online community. I have written a memoir Widows Wear Lipstick in which I share my story.
