Though I just took a break in July from posting new material, due to personal reasons I feel compelled to let the blog sit quietly for a time while I think through some things.
This hurts me to do this because I know that some of you have been blog readers of mine for over four years and you come here twice a week hoping for fresh encouragement, and to each of you in a hard marriage and going through a divorce and trying to parent on your own, I am sorry for walking away in a season of need.
In the meantime, you can click on www.elisabethklein.com/blog (if you aren’t there right now) and take a look to your right. You can choose a topic that you’re looking for and click on individual categories, or you can read one of my most popular posts under each category:
Do Not Try to Win Your Husband Back (originally posted March 2014)
Abuse is Not Just a Man’s Game (originally posted February 2014)
Jesus is Not My Boyfriend (originally posted December 2013)

My e-Harmony Profile (originally posted September 2013)

I am so grateful for the comments, the Facebook messages, and the emails that remind me on a regular basis that what I write is helping you. Your stories and your questions and your kindness have kept me writing.
I’m not quite sure when I’ll be back or what it’ll look like, so I could use your prayers for wisdom.
Much, much love,
You’ll be missed. I do feel a sadness thinking about you taking a break because on my hard days I turn to your blog, BUT for you to take time away it must be needed. I get the sense that maybe there’s some heavy stuff going on so I will be praying for you. Much love!
