BIG SHOES: A Young Widowed Mother's Memoir


Big Shoes: A Young Widowed Mother’s Memoir is the compelling story of Lisa Bradshaw and her husband Wesley, who met as children and were married more than 10 years before his death in 2004. Big Shoes is a raw and candid look at the breaking hearts of two people in love, fighting for the life they had built with their young son. Bradshaw and her husband, Wesley, struggle as they courageously navigate his mysterious illness and attempt to prepare Lisa and their young son for a life without Wesley. Bradshaw shares the extreme lows and eventual triumphs that follow his death, including her new life as a widowed single mother, dating for the first time since college, crossing the abyss of grief, and forming a non profit organization to help bring others to their own purpose. Big Shoes is not just a story of death and loss, it is about prevailing and finding true happiness, not in spite of what happens to us but because of what happens to us.


“While Lisa Bradshaw writes of her husband’s death  in Big Shoes, what we really experience in these  pages is the journey of her own rebirth.”

“Lisa Bradshaw’s walk through darkness has actually created more light in the world and, if you allow the messages of this book to permeate your soul, that light will guide you when you need it most.”

JOHN ST. AUGUSTINE, author Every Moment Matters


“When you live an experience you become a native who can educate those who are still tourists on this difficult journey called life. Lisa Bradshaw’s book can coach us all to achieve our potential and learn to not only survive but thrive.”
