Sheila and Brian

Sheila was a Christian looking for love so joined friends1st in April 2005 having been widowed from her first husband. God’s hand was on her life because Brian who was also a Christian looking for love had originally joined friendsfirst in 2002 and then rejoined in 2004. It was obviously his perfect timing! Sheila and Brian met in 2005 and they married in 2006 . Sheila made great contributions to our book – “Looking for Love the second time round” – a guide for widows and widowers”, sharing great insights into marriage for the second time having lost a loved and loving spouse.

Being a Christian looking for love can been difficult, let alone as a widow or widower. This 52 page humorously illustrated guide book is written specifically to help widows and widowers through many of the issues that they are likely to be facing. Compiled from the feedback of widows and widowers themselves, it’s a sensitive and practical guide to moving on and making the most of new relationships. It provides valuable advice on a whole range of information and topics such as:-

  • Putting yourself across in the best possible way
  • Common issues, concerns and feelings
  • Finding out if you are ready for a new relationship
  • Getting going and moving on
  • Beginning to go out
  • Knowing what you are looking for
  • More common feelings at this stage
  • Making new friends
  • Finding someone special
  • Meeting other widows/ers
  • Marriage and moving in together
