Editorial Reviews

Leith Anderson
"Are your parents divorced?This book is for you. Kristine Steakley writes from experience--her own and others'. She weaves a mosaic of hope out of the threads of Scripture, research, literature, movies and real-life stories."
Ron Luce
"In a culture where a majority of families have been torn by divorce, Kristine has filled these pages with healing and hope straight from God's Word. No matter what age you are, if you have experienced the raw pain of your parents' divorce, these words can bring revelation and cut through the myriad emotions and thoughts you experience. Parents, please read to understand how absolutely vital it is for you to help your children through one of the most difficult seasons of their life."
Linda Ranson Jacobs
"Child of Divorce, Child of God is a must-read for every young-adult child of divorce as well as adults whose parents divorced years ago. Kristine expertly weaves the Word of God throughout the entire book. Her personal stories and insights will captivate every reader and bring them to a deep understanding of God's call for them. Her words bring hope and comfort and let the reader know that they are not alone in their quest to find healing for the wounds of today and from the scars of yesterday."
Elizabeth Marquardt
"A tender exploration of the hardships and comforts a growing child of divorce finds in a life of faith. Steakley's story will be familiar to anyone who, despite the broken family dreams of the past, has sought to find wholeness in the Christian faith."
Chuck Colson
"Kristine Steakley sensitively addresses the wounds that many children of divorce bear so bravely. By pointing them to the One who binds up the brokenhearted, she does more than many books written on the subject of divorce: she not only addresses the issues, but offers real hope for healing."
