Cindy Adams

Cindy Adams serves in her church as a Grief Share leader and is a licensed social worker (LMSW). Cindy self-published her book, "A Widow's Pursuit", in 2012 that she has written from her grief experience and where she was led over the years. It is a faith based book in how God kept her on track to pursue different goals and dreams while finding new purpose in life.

I was widowed at 34 years of age, with 2 young daughters, 6 and 7 years old. You can read "My Story" of how I worked through my grief with God's help. After raising my daughters, and pursuing a second career, I've recently remarried and wrote a book on my grief journey and beyond. My purpose for writing my memoir, "A Widow's Pursuit", is to encourage other young widows, that life goes on as we make new and joyful memories. We all have a different grief journey but we can help and encourage each other to persevere through grief and pursue new dreams!
