I’ve been through a handful of big hard things in my life and myriad of little hard things and hands down the most life-upending trial of my life has been my divorce. If you are separated or divorced, you know what I’m talking about.
When you hear the word divorce, most people automatically think pain. But then you go through it and it changes you and cracks little pieces of your heart off and leaves you feeling, well, a lot of not good emotions for a very long time. It’s staggering really what divorce can do to a person.
My hope and desire has been that my marriage pain and my divorce pain, when given over to God over and over again, will turn into something redemptive, something that can reach into the heart of another person and show her that there is light just up ahead.
So as I continue to pursue with everything in me my mission to create resources that help hurting women by bringing them hope, I am very excited to announce that I now have TWO resources for those of you who find themselves separated or divorced.
Unraveling: Hanging onto Faith through the End of a Christian Marriage is your emotional and spiritual companion through the landmine of separation and divorce.

Allow me to pray for you, sweet ones:
God, I come to you on behalf of each of these hurting women whose marriages are either dying or dead. It doesn’t matter in this moment how they got to the place they find themselves, because no matter how, they are in some kind of turmoil and pain. I ask that you will bring a deep healing to each one. I ask that you will recover their hearts. I ask that you will restore their sanity. I ask that you will rebuild their lives. I ask that you will renew their passion for life. I ask that you will fill them with your peace, your comfort and your strength. And I ask that in those moments when the pain is simply overwhelming, that you will remind them that they are going to be okay because you are faithful and trustworthy and you love them completely. Amen.
Sounds great! Yes, divorce does Suck! Having been through a Christian marriage that ended in divorce, I can attest. Congratulations Elisabeth on your book. I know writing a book is hard work. Best wishes to you!!
