If interested in being a part of the private Facebook group I moderate for women in difficult Christian marriages or the one for Christian women who are separated or divorced, please send me an email letting me know at Elisabeth@elisabethklein.com along with a friend request to Elisabeth Klein (search for me under People not Pages).
My hope is that you know – no matter where you fall on the continuum of difficult marriage/separation/divorce/church leader – healing and grace are available.
Hello Elisabeth. I went online hoping beyond hope I would be able to find SOMETHING that would relate to me, my situation and recent decisions I have made. And there you were-your 4-part story on Unraveling. God is so awesome because he let me know I’m not by myself in experiencing the hurricane of emotions and merry-go-round of unhealthy instability that have come with my 22 year marriage. No alcohol, but plenty of emotional & mental abuse. God gave me my release 5 months ago, when my youngest graduated. He unexpectedly spoke clearly to me in church “You are released.” Yet and still, old habits are hard to break. It wasn’t until my husband said he felt he needed to separate (for the fourth time) that I decided to cash in my release notice. Divorce is in the works. Thank you for sharing with care and sincerity. Knowing others understand and can relate, that’s priceless. I will be visiting this site often. May God bless and keep you.
