Women with a View

Welcome to The Women’s Window!

`

I sensed the need to encourage and comfort the widows in my home town in Michigan shortly after my husband died in 1993.   The Lord led me to reach these ladies through a newsletter, The Widow’s Window, which I wrote, published and mailed out on a monthly basis .   It wasn’t long before women of all walks of life and situations requested subscriptions to this little newsletter; thus its name was changed to The Women’s Window.  

Today, Dec. 15, 2010, marks its debut into the world of the internet as Women’s Window.

I am an established writer of Christian-based poetry, non-fiction stories and articles, devotionals, an E-Book and recently have begun to dabble in fiction.  This site will offer my writings and when available, those of other authors, including:  devotionals, Bible studies, poetry, humor, recipes, prayers and lots of blogging, all under the heading of women’s interests.

This is an exciting adventure for me, and I encourage you to join me in praising our Lord Jesus Christ and our heavenly Father through the written word.  May He bless these endeavors for His glory and enrich lives with His love, peace and joy.

My belief in Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord is steadfast and firmly planted.  We have journeyed long together, through many a conflict, many a doubt.  May His name forever be praised and elevated above any other name.  Amen. 

Your comments are most welcome and encouragement for the writers.  You are invited to become a regular visitor here, so come back soon.   Or, if you’d rather, subscribe and receive our offerings hot-off-the-press.  Thank you!

~Shalom

    Thanks, Jeanne, for sharing words of encouragement – and thanks for liking the post, “A New Beginning” at my blog, “Learning From God’s Word. God bless you and make you a blessing to many.

    Thank you for deciding to hmmm along with me. I haven’t done much serious writing lately (too many urgent family issues demanding my time) but God has not stopped showing me many things to ponder. In time, the many hmmms jotted on paper and recorded to my smartphone will be pulled together and shared.

    Thanks again and Keep the Faith!

    Thank you for following me Jeanne! God bless you!

  37. Hello – fellow blogger friend from God Speaks I Listen recommended your page. She is right you have some very nice poetry, I enjoyed my visit. And we have something in common, I started school at the Mannheim Army Post American School in Mannheim Germany and my mother lived for years in Frankfurt and my brother and sister were also born in Germany. The family housing at Mannheim is one of many places that were given back to Germany. My German is rusty but here goes: Es ist nett, Sie zu treffen. Segnungen – Patty.

    • Hello Patty. So good to hear from you! Small world. We lived in Butzbach, rode the bus to Frankfurt to school, graduated in ’60. Married in Oct. that year, had first 3 kids over there. We lived on the economy at first then finally got housing. Yes, I hear things have changed drastically. Did you travel much while you were there? Loved Switzerland & southern Germany. Will look forward to reading your blog and bio too. Love to make new friends. Keep in touch. jeanne_webster@yahoo.com

      German is rusty here too. Sorry. Shalom :)

  38. patgarcia says:

    Hi,
    I am also an American Christian author currently living in Germany. I was scouting around lookíng for websites to team up with and follow in my wordpress and saw yours and decided to read about you. I like what I read and wish you the very best. I recently had my first short story published by a Canadian publisher, as well as a literary arricle publish in the American Diversity Report in April of this year. You may find some of my work at http://www.patgarciaschaack.com or on one of my wordpress blogs at http://garciaandwalkon.me. I personally wish you all the best in your writing and look forward to getting to know you better in what you write.
    Ciao,
    Patricia

    • Wie gehts, Pat? Love to share with you and let us encourage each other. I graduated from American H.S. in Frankfurt. Many years ago. Sounds like you are doing well. Will visit your site and read all about you! Auf wiedersehen! Happy to have you on board.

      Shalom,
      Jeanne

      • patgarcia says:

        Hi Jeanne,
        Mir geht es gut!
        So, you went to Frankfurt High School? Then it will probably surprise you that the whole area where the military was stationed is no more. The schools, Terrace Club, billeting do not exist anymore. The housing areas have also changed. Some completely torned down and others remodeled and Germans and other nationalities are living in them. There is no American Military in Frankfurt or Hanau or Rhein Main. The Air Force base was given over to FRA PORT the German Luthansa airline.
        Things have changed here completely and many Americans who were stationed here would be surprised at the changes.
        Have a great day and it is nice connecting with you.
        Ciao,
        Patricia

  68. Jeanne says:

    Jeanne,

    so blessed to know other women through my writing. as you know, writing can be very bleak, spending long hours alone typing away. hope for many splendid days conversing through the wires and Faithwriters.com where we caught up with each other to begin.

    Jesus’ peace,
    Jeanne (lollysadverbs)

    • Yes, it is so. Amen! I long for friendships also among writers, as indeed it is a lonely task. Only other writers know the burden that comes with it. So let us be up and about, lifting up one another and encouraging those quieted spirits!

      Shalom,
      Jeanne

  69. Thanks for hitting my blog! I always love to connect with other writers with a heart for women. Good luck in all you do and keep in touch:)

  75. Abby Kelly says:

    Sorry about the difficulty finding the subscription link! I’ve moved it to the top right hand corner of the page.

  76. Much success in this endeavor. I wonder if a divorce, or two, is like a death?

    • Thanks for your visit and comment. Enjoyed your site and will return. Love your hat!

      I would say a divorce, in many ways, is like a death; a loss is a loss is a loss. [I've lost and lost and lost.]

    • Penny says:

      Yes, divorce is exactly like going through a death of a love one. You experience the same emotions and set backs. But, I have turned my life around-and have moved forward with more wisdom and understanding.

  77. Hi, wonderful stuff here for women. Thank you very much for this, and indeed you are doing a great work. Oh, wish men could also have their site, smile.

    May you continue with the same spirit.
    Wishing you every joy.
