Overview

Choosing to see your divorce as a chance to grow is the starting point for the process of personal growth and spiritual formation. –Melody Bacon, PhD

Divorce is one of those experiences that everyone believes will happen to someone else. So what do you do when it happens to you? As a Christian believer, how can you walk through the valley of divorce and emerge better and not bitter?

Christians whose faith seemed to be left at the courtroom door as they sought to “win” their divorce have left families, communities, churches and—most tragically—their children permanently wounded by this experience. In The Grace-Filled Divorce, Dr. Melody Bacon shares a very different perspective on how to approach divorce: Use something you did not want as an opportunity to receive God’s grace, being transformed into a deeper relationship with God, yourself, and others.

This book will assist readers in learning how to:

Embrace grief in order to let go of old ideas, assumptions and perspectives.
Recognize and change relationship patterns that contributed to the divorce
Create a workable relationship with an ex-spouse
Partner with God to redeem the experience of divorce so that His love may be more fully revealed.

Editorial Reviews

Book Endorsement - Andrew Stenhouse
Dr. Bacon possesses acute clarity on the needs, issues, and struggles facing those who must navigate the treacherous terrain of divorce. Her expertise is second to none, yet her experience is what makes this book personal—deeply personal. You will put down this book thinking, “Divorce can be filled with grace. It can be done. I can do it.” —director, industrial-organizational psychology, Concordia University Irvine; author, Broken: A Guide Toward Emotional and Relatio
Book Endorsement - Alan Jones
Melody Bacon challenges the Church with the Good News—not only on behalf of those of us who are divorced, but on behalf of all of us, teaching us what it is to live under grace.” –Dean emeritus, Grace Cathedral, San Francisco; honorary canon, Cathedral of Our Lady of Chartres; author, Soul Making

Meet the Author

Melody Bacon holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, with an emphasis in depth psychology, from Pacifica Graduate Institute and an M.A. in U.S. history from Cal State Northridge. In their private practice, Melody and her husband Ron (a marriage and family therapist), work with couples and individuals facing relationship challenges. They also conduct workshops for pre-engaged couples: Before You Pop the Question, and married couples: Happily Married After.



Dr. Bacon is also a teacher and administrator for the Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Southern California where she chairs the Marital and Family Therapy program. She is passionate about blending the insights of psychology with spiritual formation practices and has been inspired by writings of Calvin Miller, John Eldridge and Alan Jones, among others. Her training in Jungian analytic psychology has given her tremendous respect for the ways in which God reveals himself, particularly through dreams. She endeavors to stay at least one step ahead of her clients in learning the lessons that God has to teach. Periodically, she and her husband test the limits of their marriage and spiritual commitment on the golf course.
