SARASOTA, Fla. - Dec. 13, 2021 - PRLog -- Bestselling author, speaker, and wellness coach Marie Scott announces the release of her latest book, "How I Found Meaning (and Humor) in Widowhood, Firehouses, and Organic Vegetables - 7 Steps to Healing After Loss" just in time for the holidays. The book is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online bookstores.

The book is a heartfelt and humorous look at the complexities of grief after the loss of a spouse.  Marie shares her own journey to help and inspire widows and widowers navigate life after loss.  She provides a roadmap to healing the mind, body, and spirit, a journey that ultimately led her to meet the second love of her life.

Reviews have been overwhelmingly positive for the book. One reviewer writes, "Every now and then a book comes along that deeply touches your heart. Not only is How I Found Meaning (And Humor) in Widowhood, Firehouses, & Organic Vegetables a must-read for anyone who's experienced a loss, it's also an inspirational road map for how to discover renewed meaning and purpose, and how to take charge of your health through the power of Functional Medicine."


After she lost her beloved firefighter husband of thirty years to cancer, Marie began a quest to discover what her new purpose in life could possibly be. After becoming a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach and changing her food preferences, she lost thirty pounds. Better yet, along with some positive lifestyle changes, she was able to come off all prescription medications, including high blood pressure, anxiety and antidepressants, even reversing her pre-diabetes. Through healing her body, mind and spirit her heart opened and found love again. She married Jeff Gordon in September of 2021.

Through this journey from grief to healing the 7 Steps to Healing After Loss was developed. These steps not only helped her shine a light in a very dark place, but also helped her after losing her Mom the same year as her late husband. Today she teaches the "7 Steps to Healing After Loss" both online and in person. These 7 Steps helped not only Marie to embrace life again, but others who hear her story are inspired and have benefited from the teachings. She is living proof these seven steps work.


Marie Scott was born and raised in Rochester, NY and lived with her late husband, Dave, near Toronto, Canada and outside of Charleston, SC after he retired from the Fire Department. She can currently be found in Sarasota, FL or Franklin, Maine, depending on the weather or the hunting season. Her new husband Jeff is an avid sportsman who brings all his wild game meats to Marie to create healthy, organic, delicious dishes. Many of these recipes will be featured in the upcoming book, "Cooking with a Side of Kleenex." Other events planned for 2022 are Widowed Retreats in Sarasota, and Bar Harbor, Maine.You can discover more about Marie at
