War widow shares her story of survival in new book


On July 22, 1986, Wendy Taylor became a soldier’s wife. She wasn’t even twenty years old yet, and neither was he. For the next two decades, Wendy remained a soldier’s wife. Through basic training, deployments, and promotions, she was by his side–sometimes physically and sometimes emotionally. Being a soldier’s wife is not easy. Every time he left, she ached for him; but she never imagined the ache would become a permanent fixture in her life. On January 20, 2007, Wendy Taylor became a soldier’s widow–a part of the Gold Star Family, an exclusive family no one wants to be a part of. Her husband, Michael Taylor, was killed when his Blackhawk helicopter was shot down by the enemy.

This book is her journey of learning how to go on after that. It is an honest –sometimes heartbreaking, but always hopeful–story of survival in the wake of life-changing loss. It is her how to guide on how she remained Undefeated.

A beautiful story of love of God and the gift of family. Its difficult to imagine the grief endured by families who lose loved ones in war. My prayers are for all those who are experiencing grief and the hardships of war. Thank you for sharing your experience. I know it will help many.


Fantastic book!

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. While I have not lost someone due to war, it makes me appreciate even more the great sacrifices that these brave soldiers (and families) make to protect this country and our freedoms. Thank you, Michael Taylor and family!
