Item description for New Life After Divorce Workbook: The Promise of Hope Beyond the Pain by Bill Butterworth...
Overview It's the End of Your Marriage Not Your Life. Few experiences bring more pain than divorce. Like the death of a loved one, divorce plunges us into grief and loneliness, heartache and depression. Perhaps worst of all, divorce makes us believe that all that is meaningful and joyful has come to an end. Do not believe it. Better Days Are Just Ahead. You already know that divorce is one of the greatest challenges you will ever face. Yet it also can trigger tremendous growth in several key areas, including your relationships, the way you see yourself, and how you live out your faith. No one is calling divorce a blessing. But it is something that you will live through and that can help to powerfully transform you into the person God has created you to be. Whether you are in the earliest stages of divorce, are newly single again, are processing an earlier divorce, or know someone whose marriage is ending, New Life After Divorce offers encouragement and hope that this new life will be a good life and the promise that healing, strength, purpose, and joy are around the corner

Reviews - What do customers think about New Life After Divorce Workbook: The Promise of Hope Beyond the Pain?
More religious oriented than practical Sep 18, 2005
Too much "turn your problems over to God," too little practical steps to take to deal with the grieving of divorce and get on with one's life. But...my mistake. I was looking for a workbook for a client to use to supplement therapy. This is obviously not that.
