Worship Artist Brings Awareness to National Widow’s Day

by | May 3, 2019 | Women

“The constant loneliness and the constant griefit was so heartbreaking to see.” That’s how Christian singer Holly Starr remembers her grandmother’s season as a widow.

May 3 is National Widow’s Day, and Starr wants everyone to know it. She has spent much of her time this past year building awareness of widows through The Yes Necklace, a ministry tool she developed to enable and encourage people to reach out and spend time with widows. Many folks aren’t aware that National Widow’s Day exists, and Holly wants to change that.

“When I told my mother-in-law (who was widowed in 2017) that we’d like to do something special with her this year for National Widow’s Day, I couldn’t help but notice the big smile that crossed her face.” shares Starr. “I’ve been blown away at the response we’ve had to The YES Necklace when I share about widows at our live shows. The overwhelming response has shown me how great the need is for reaching out to widows.”

Holly Starr will be kicking off The Yes Tour this summer with a focus on raising awareness for loving on widows.
