Bridgett Wilder began her journey with the Lord at the age of 18 after graduating from high school. As a young woman, she was dedicated to changing her life and yearned to have a deep relationship with God. Bridgett was not raised in the church, and did not know any intimate details about Christ, yet deep down inside she knew she wanted to be saved. She was invited to Unity Gospel house of prayer as a youth and has been connected to her church from the age of 18 to her current age of 45. She attended college at The University of Wisconsin Milwaukee but decided to withdraw to marry and have children at the age of 20 years of age. While married, Bridgett and her husband, the late Wilson Anthony Wilder had a total of 12 children. Of the 12 children, two were miscarried and one died due to a neurological disorder called Leukodystrophy at the age of 6 years of age. Three years after the death of her daughter, Bridgett lost her husband due to a severe heart condition; he was 37; leaving her as a 36-year-old widow with 9 surviving children. During the time of her spouse’s death, the children ranged from the ages of 16 to 4 months of age.
For the first time in her life, Bridgett felt alone, in deep despair, and questioned what God wanted from her life. Her faith was challenged like never. Because of her severe life changes, she became broken and began to rely on God to pick up the pieces.
Faced with many obstacles within her life from the age of 18 to 45, she discovered her life with Christ was necessary to get her to a place from tragedy to triumph.
Bridgett graduated from Mount Mary University with a Bachelors degree of science and Minor in Psychology. She is the founder of PERSEVERANCE Health and Wellness Coaching: a company that specializes in weight loss. Her role as a Nutritionist and Wellness Consultant has helped many women reach their goals of modifying their health. She also provides strategies to help her clients change their mindset to reach weight loss goals.
From losing many loved ones such as her mother, husband, and child, God introduced her to a deep intimate relationship with Him that proved to be the remedy for all the sufferings she has faced throughout her adult life.
She is dedicated to sharing her story with God’s people that demonstrates His power and total reliance on Him. Bridgett desires God’s guidance as she writes and tells of the power and victory in her life by way of Jesus Christ.
