Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In Moving Forward After Divorce, David and Lisa Frisbie have found an effective way to offer people healing and hope following the painful experience of divorce. They provide practical guidelines for anyone forced to handle the extremely difficult issues of this life-altering tragedy. Scores of relevant illustrations and very practical, biblically based insights reinforce the guidelines they suggest. The summaries scattered throughout the book and the ‘reflection and growth' questions are excellent for review and continued reference. I recommend this step-by-step manual to pastors and counselors who are looking for ways to guide people through the complicated path of divorce recovery."
Dr. Dan Casey, Senior Pastor, First Church of the Nazarene

"Moving Forward After Divorce is a book that really understands the pain, embarrassment, and hopelessness of divorce. David and Lisa Frisbie know how to get the broken unstuck from their place of anguish. The book is laid out in a plain and simple way with answers that have been tested time and again. What a tool for the care giver!"
Chuck Millhuff, Revivalism Coordinator, The Church of the Nazarene

"Moving Forward After Divorce is an encouraging resource for those whose lives have been shattered by divorce. I highly recommend this book to those seeking God's will in the aftermath of divorce."
Rev. Kevin Hopkins, Pastor, Choctaw Church of the Nazarene

"[The Frisbies] balance the inevitable grief and anger one feels with the possibility of healing and hope...They choose to focus on the practical steps available to formerly married men and women and declare: ‘The ideas here beckon our gaze away from the debris at our feet and out toward the far horizon.'"
Dr. Gerard Reed, Point Loma Nazarene University

"David and Lisa Frisbie share effective tools for living life in a stepfamily in a humorous yet effective way."
Stephen and Deanna Kaech, community leaders, Stepfamily Ministry, Saddleback Church

I bought this book three weeks ago and I have already read it twice, all the way through. The chapter on parenting is the best advice I've ever read --- anywhere --- about how to raise children. This is so much more than a divorce book, it's a book about taking control of your life, learning how to manage your kids, and getting your act together in a lot of ways, including finances. There's so much here! The best part is the book is so easy to read. I would recommend this for anyone who is working there way through a divorce.

I love reading this book!!! I was divorced last year and reading this book was like seeing my life unfold in many ways. I love the fact that it is not preachy and stereotypical, meaning it doesn't just focus on women but on both genders. It show's the reader's the process or emotional process of the divorce both with the children and the adult, often times, the children are left behind to fend for themselves. I love reading the interviews because it made the book more human and I felt very connected with the people who were being interviewed. Great reading and I highly recommend to both men and women whetther you are going through a divorce or have finalized your divorce.

This excellent new book is now my 'top pick' in the divorce care or divorce recovery category. It's so true-to-life, warts and all, so aware of the real experiences we face as divorced adults. If you can only buy and read one book to help you get through your divorce, this is the book! You'll find honest, realistic, encouraging hope here.

This book is turning my life around, one step at a time. It is so readable! I'm learning a lot about how to start putting my life together. I highly recommend this book to any woman, 25-45, struggling with divorce. However it is written for men also.
