By Karen Nielsen


From Victim to Survivor and Beyond

Pathways is for those who have gone through tragic circumstances and catastrophic situations in their life.

Negativity happens every single day in those moments when it’s least expected, when out of the blue something happens and it rocks your world. You can’t control it, can’t choose it, and you can’t script it. But what you can do is learn how to live through it and learn how to live beyond it. Life can be full of love, so full of life, and so life-affirming.

Karen Nielsen invites you to choose life, choose yourself, and don’t ever forget that there are people out there who want to come right along side you, lift you up, encourage you, and love you if only you will let them.

Author & Speaker

Karen Nielsen

Karen Nielsen, an author and speaker, is the co-founder of Widow Women Connect, a sisterhood of widows who connect, mentor and support each other through the wilderness of life after losing their spouse/partner. Karen lost her husband Robert to suicide in January of 2018, and through her pain and grief, realized she had a platform in which to help others. She speaks to groups on suicide prevention and mental health awareness, both of which plagued her late husband, as well as talking to those who have been left behind after losing someone to suicide.


You either get bitter or you get better. It’s that simple. You either take what has been dealt to you and allow it to make you a better person, or you allow it to tear you down. The choice does not belong to fate.
It belongs to you.
