Okay, that sounds bitter. So let me rephrase.
Valentine’s Day is awesome. If you’re part of a couple.
But if you’re separated or divorced or in a hard marriage, I reiterate: Valentine’s Day SUCKS.
So, on this day that sucks, let me offer up two resources for you.
Unraveling: Hanging onto Faith through the End of a Christian Marriage is my chronicling of how I managed every emotion that pummeled me through my painful and life-changing divorce. And if you find yourself in this situation, here’s what a couple others have to say about it:
“I have a friend who told me that her marriage and divorce have made her a relentless truth-teller. Unraveling makes me think that my friend is part of a tribe, and that Elisabeth Corcoran is one of the tribes’ wise leaders. This book is company, and nourishment, and courageous, relentless truth.”
Lauren Winner, author of Girls Meets God
“Elisabeth is an amazing and insightful writer. Unraveling is both painful and delightful and you won’t forget it or the lessons you will learn from it.”
Steve Arterburn, author of the Every Man’s Battle series and Healing is a Choice
“As a woman who has gone through the agony of separation and divorce, Unraveling is definitely a light in what is a very dark place so many find themselves in.”
Leigh Nash, singer/songwriter, member of Sixpence None the Richer
Surviving in a Difficult Christian Marriage: Questions & Suggestions is my attempt to help women navigate the very challenging life that comes with finding yourself in a marriage that is not simply disappointing but painful on a daily basis. You can purchase it on Amazon for Kindle or on my website in a PDF.
My hope is that both of these resources will reach down deep into your heart and remind you that you’re not alone, that God sees you, and that he offers his strength and hope to you, no matter your circumstances.
So Happy Valentine’s Day, sweet ones. We’re not alone and we are loved.
