Overview

A woman who is separated needs a friend to walk beside her on her difficult journey.

Broken Heart on Hold is that friend, one that will uplift, encourage, and hold her up while offering practical insights and pointing her to God. It is a book of hope. Because it is written by a woman who has gone through the trauma of a separation and the eventual healing of her own marriage, the reader will know she is not alone.

This collection of honest, heartfelt messages reaches down into the valleys of a woman's loneliness, travels with her through her mental labyrinths, and sheds light in the dark tunnels where answers seem nonexistent. It provides the emotional and spiritual strength to help a woman sort through her confusion.

While winding her way through the maze of her emotions, she will realize there is hope as she hangs on to God and trusts him for the outcome. Broken Heart on Hold is a book she will return to again and again.

If you are a Christian experiencing the pain of separation, this book is for you. Written by a woman who experienced her own 3 year separation, it offers support and insight into the pain, loss and hopelessness you may be experiencing. It helped me during the lowest point of my life. When I felt there was no one who understood what I was feeling, I realized I was not alone and this book helped me find strength to get through. This book is not meant to be read quickly. It is comprised of short chapters which are really meant to be read individually each day. I was so taken by this book that I did read it quickly the first time but then re-read it slowly over the course of a few weeks and found that it was this slow, reflective reading which benefitted me most. I have picked this book up again and again throughout this painful process and it never fails to help me find some peace.

From the first page i was able to connect with this author. I almost felt like she was writing based on my own journals. She felt what i felt. This book came at a time when I was feeling desperate and desolate. I read it all the way through in one day and then i went back and read each section daily. I marked up my bible with verses i had read and highlighted many sections for daily rereading. It speaks to those who are ready to give up. My husbands midlife crisis and severe depression turned hin into a cold and stoic monster. He turned his back on our nine year marriage and said "i don't love you anymore" but my purpose was much more than a husband who claimed to not love me. We are still seperated but i have hope for my future whether he comes back or not. The battle prayer is a daily prayer for me. Thank you for writing this book. It saved my life.

I can't say enough good things about this book. This isn't a 'how to get your husband back', it's about coping during this incredibly difficult time. I'm on my 2nd read of this book and this has been a blessing. I highly recommend this for anyone going through this incredibly stressful, very sad time.

Encouraging read. I use it as I would a daily devotional. Scripture verses attached to each day.
