Get a Lawyer? Divorce Ok? Prenuptials mandatory? Getting down on churches that get down on the divorced? Does that sound like a stuffy Christian book that goes by The Book to you? It's too bad that so many divorced will shun this comprehensive book on recovery simply because it is tagged 'Christian'. Perhaps my secular friends could simply skim over the religious parts? As if 'Patriot Act'-like, it had been recorded from my car and apartment, every single emotion and circumstance I lived through during the heart-breaking end of my own twenty-seven year marriage was replayed inside Growing Through Divorce. Upon cracking open Growing Through Divorce the reader is greeted with large grade-school size font. But that's good because it makes it easier to read through your large crocodile tears. And you will cry, and cry often reading this book. Growing Through Divorce is the Dutch Uncle every divorced person needs to listen too. The first chapter hits the reader with the universal question of the recently dumped: 'Is this really happening to me?' Titled 'Letting Go', Chapter Two pins you to floor as you are forced to inventory the immense physical, emotional and financial losses a divorce generates. To keep you on track, every chapter concludes with 'Personal Growth' questions and begs the reader to record her answers. The final eighty pages are devoted to a 'Working Guide', with generous room to write in, in order to help you plot your future as a single. For those of us who cannot imagine living single for the rest of our lives, have no fear, and know that statistics reveal that 90% of the divorced do remarry. While I wept profusely, this book also offered me hope, a plan, and forced me to face the fact that I alone was 100% responsible for me. To benefit from Growing Through Divorce, the reader doesn't need to be a regular church attender or be the Alex Rodriguez of Bible Baseball or be able to recite the books of the Old & New Testaments in reverse order. One simply needs to believe that we were created by a loving God. This is the finest book the recently divorced could buy and read and absorb in order to cleanse themselves of their confusing and constipating emotions and to begin to enjoy life again.

A great book for those devastated by the tragedy of divorce. This is the book you are looking for! I have seen this book make an incredible difference in hundreds of lives. We have given away over 2500 copies of this book over the past 10 years at the Divorce Recovery Workshop which I lead (at Canton First Friends Church and at Willoughby Hills Friends Church). I have received very positive feedback from people who have read this book. Many have read the book over several times as a lifeline that helped keep their heads above water. Many pass their copies on to others who need a helping hand, too. This book will be a good investment if you want to heal, recover, and grow. The choice that is offered to you in this book is: you can just go through your divorce, or, you can grow through it. I have known hundreds who have done so, with God's help and with the help of Jim Smoke's book, Growing Through Divorce.
