What’s With The URL?
(If you’re still reading and in case you missed it, the Widower’s Coach website points to bgoneb9bhealed.com, my old blog, for now)

“B-Gone, B-9, B-Healed” developed as a tag line within the first month of blogging Kristi’s battle with breast cancer. It captured in shorthand our hope and faith while keeping us focused on our ultimate goal.


A prayer for disease to be removed. It formed the baseline for all the prayers that Kristi and I prayed. It’s how our support team prayed. It wasn’t answered for her but that doesn’t keep me from praying it for you… that your life would be disease free.


B-9 rhymes with benign. It’s a simultaneous prayer and declaration that any mass or tumor be found harmless.


The ultimate goal is complete restoration of body, soul and spirit to wholeness. That’s what F4AW is about. The absence of disease or simply lack of progression does not mean healing has occurred. This prayer keeps us focused on the end goal. We don’t want to just be disease free, we want to be fully well, fully alive! Its why we train. Healing from grief takes time. Training accelerates the process! Train to live fit, faithful and fulfilled lives!

Its a Way of Life

What started as a battle cry has morphed into a motto for life. It reminds me to stay focused on the Spirit of liberty to bring love and healing to those in my life.
