    Divorce Recovery Book

    Divorce can be the best choice in those situations.No matter what the reason for divorce, even if we aren’t overtly shunned like my mom was, we often hear hurtful responses with a spiritual ring to them: God can heal your marriage; just pray in faith. This repair becomes part of the history of the piece, which enhances rather than diminishes its beauty.​No matter how the church responds or what people say, no matter what trauma we have experienced, no matter what we have done to contribute to our broken marriage, God is willing and able to heal.

    Tips for Divorce Recovery

    For example, one friend showed up to help pack for my move but ended up walking and talking with me instead, because that’s what I needed most at that moment.My cousins rallied around me and helped me move.Friends called me once a week, invited me to movies, and listened when I needed a compassionate ear. I stretched myself, trying things I hadn’t previously thought I was capable of doing.I bought my own place for the first time, making all the necessary decisions myself.Upon receiving the keys to my townhouse, I claimed ownership and responsibility for it from top to bottom as I straddled the rafters in the attic and became covered in spider webs and insulation in the crawlspace.I tackled household repairs that once were my husband’s purview. I decided not to date for a year after the divorce.I knew I had to heal before I could be ready for a healthy relationship.I was lonely and would have loved to have been in a good man’s arms, but I didn’t trust my discernment.Rushing into a new relationship would have been a big mistake.This turned out to be one of the best decisions I made during my recovery.

She and her husband were preparing to celebrate their fiftieth wedding anniversary, and she was dreading it because of his careless words a decade before. She wrote, “Please pray that God mends this title [sic] piece of my heart that has fallen to the ground.”
