Overview


You CAN rebuild after divorce. It just takes a blueprint!

Whether you've recently divorced or it's been a few years, you can rebuild a life rich in faith, hope, and lots of love. But first you\'ll need blueprints, clear directions to make your house a home again. Where should you start? By laying a solid foundation that will hold up under the drizzle of daily life and any raging storms that may come. And the cornerstone of that foundation is Christ.

For over 20 years, Rose Sweet has brought her wit and wisdom to the separated, divorced, and remarried who often ask, "What is God's will for me?", "What about the kids?", "Where do I stand in the eyes of the Church?", or "Will I ever love again?". These and many other practical considerations are addressed in a way that will both challenge and encourage anyone who has been divorced.

"I found myself falling into a cycle of depression and trying to fill my life with things work, shopping, even hours of distraction on the computer. Rose reminded me what, or I should say Who, I really wanted. Now my life after divorce is not about finding friends on Facebook, but seeking the face of God." - Sharon

"I knew God was with me, but wasn t sure about how to incorporate my faith into the daily details of my life. Rose helped me name and cut through my fears and showed me how to make it all work." - John
