On June 16,stay-at-home mom Jadalynn Griffin got the news from Texas State Troopers that her husband of seven years, Andy, had been killed in a traffic accident. Inhundreds of thousands of women were in a state of separation, divorce, or widowhood. To add to the inherent stress of any of these situations, children are often involved.
Where are women supposed to go for support in a desperate and lonely situation like divorce or the sudden death of a spouse? Sharon Verigan asked this very question in after the unexpected death of her father, and it inspired her to take action. Through friends, social media, and her church, Verigan has brought together a network of hundreds of women grieving a spouse or marriage. With a base of women supporting women, BRA provides Christian resources, counseling, support groups, social events, food and bill assistance, and volunteer opportunities.
Verigan had her doubts in the beginning when trying to establish the group. Her first event, a brunch, had only 10 attendees.
The vibe was wrong and awkward. Verigan considered whether she should scrap the idea — until an attendee spoke with her about her experiences and inspired her to try again.
The next brunch, with a slightly tweaked plan, was the catalyst that sparked the growth of BRA. Reaching out to more divorcees, widows, and separated women who need them. After four years of the program, she knows all too well how many women are feeling undersupported.
Her next idea for gaining awareness and funding for BRA? A sports bra line. Share Post:. About Post Author.
