The end of your marriage is not the end of you

The end of your marriage is not the end of you Find out how to enter to win a copy of Living Unbroken below!

It’s been a five year journey to get to this point in time, but today is the day when I see God’s divine plan come to fruition for turning my pain into purpose yet again!

My brand new book, Living Unbroken: Reclaiming Your Life and Your Heart After Divorce, releases today!

When my marriage of twenty five years abruptly ended just over five years ago, I not only thought life had ended as I knew it, but that I would never be the same again either. Never cease to feel sad and devastated. Never survive financially. Never overcome all the problems. Never break free from my paralyzing fears and insecurities. Never recover. Never feel enough. Lots and lots of ‘never’s plagued my heart and mind for many, many months.

But God never left my side and once again used one of the most devastating circumstances of my life to give me new purpose – a passion to help other brokenhearted women, and even men, know that even when a marriage falls apart and our hearts are broken, it is possible to push past that brokenness and feel and live unbroken, even if life turned out differently than we had planned. It is my heart’s desire to be that friend, through the words on the pages of Living Unbroken, that helps them feel less alone in the hard journey of separation and divorce, believe they will be okay, and hold their hand as they work to embrace healing and happiness.

In my Proverbs 31 devotion today, When Divorce Leaves You Mourning the Death of the Living, I shared a little about my story and the immense grief that weighed on my heart after my husband left. I also wrote:

God is fully capable of comforting us in our grief and giving us a peace we shouldn’t be able to feel in the midst of such turmoil. We are never alone on the journey to mending our hearts and restoring our lives.


The end of a marriage is not the end of life. Although it often feels that way, if you are in a similar situation, never forget you have a lot of life left to live and a beautiful future awaits. Keep putting one foot in front of the other, and with God by your side, you’ll soon realize you are on your way to healing, wholeness and happiness.


With grounded faith and a commitment to ourselves to move forward, we can feel and live unbroken once and for all.

This is the basis of my new book, Living Unbroken. Even though we feel broken and grief is heavy, we do not have to live and feel that way forever. God has good plans for every one of His children and we can have peace and happiness despite our circumstances if we put our trust and faith in Him.

If you are walking this hard road, or have in the past, I hope you will consider purchasing a copy of Living Unbroken. I truly believe with all my heart that the words God gave me to write and the sharing of my own story and healing journey will help your heart heal too and restore your hope in what the future holds. In the book, I not only address many of the struggles and feelings that make life hard, but share lots of encouragement, tips and practical suggestions for how to embrace this new season of life with peace and joy.

If you are not facing separation or divorce, I bet you know someone who is . Everyone knows someone, and it’s often hard to know what to say to encourage, support or help. It’s difficult to truly understand what they’re going through, even if your heart is full of compassion. Consider getting a copy of Living Unbroken for them and letting them know how much you care about what they’re going through. It can also be a book to help you grasp an inside look at the secret pain, emotions and fears divorce can cause.

Plus – if you order this month, you’ll receive 5  free downloadable gifts which are incredible resources to help in the healing journey!

    I would love to enter to win a free book but I cannot post about it on social media b/c the only ppl that know what i am going through is close family. I did however sign up for the blog. This has been a long 6yrs & I am no closer to healing than I was when this all first started.

      Ditto. Exact same words and feelings. GRIEF! Sudden and shocking and blindsided. I’m embarrassed to say mine has been going on for 10 long years. I did snap out of it for a few years but lately the pain is so ever present. This 10 years has aged me terribly. And the loneliness of the pandemic has opened the whole in my heart back up. Lately I’ve been angry with God because I so desperately want to have some joy again. I desperately want to stop longing for what I once had and live in the now but it hurts too bad.

    Your post on Proverbs 31 today, could have been words directly from my own mouth. I don’t know how I got here…but here I am Lord. I have complete faith God will use this, but grieving is painful as my husband loved us so well for 25 years then abandoned us like we never mattered. Grieving is definitely the word…bitter and angry here and there, but mostly just grieved. I signed up for your blog and will order your book as well!

    Grieving the death of the living!! I’ve never thought of it that way but that truly sums it up! I’ve always thought divorce is worse than death. I was married for 21+years and have been divorced for 12+years. I still deal with all the brokenness daily! I plan to purchase your book and I’ve joined your blog! Thanks so much for your encouraging words and I look forward to reading your book!

    I”d love to win a copy of your book. While my daily devotion, First 5, has a devotion about wives submitting to husbands, I hear reading about surviving divorce. The grieving of the dream of growing old with someone is so tough for me…making a covenant with one person, and realizing that you’re living with another. Thank you for your honest about a topic not often spoke about in the church. Shining light on the difficult divorce road will help so many. Thank you.

    Im so lost other than crying out to my God daily, which seems to be my food, even after almost 2 yrs gone. He is holding out the divorce for settling reasons even. Makes it harder to heal. After 35 yrs of marriage & 3 daughters a 59 yr old leaves me for a 26 yr old with a child who came here illegally which he fixed for her. God help us. I need more than a book but its a good one I’m sure. Thanks for a possible blessing. WHEN DOES THE GRIEVING END…

    This came at the perfect time!! My husband of 25 years left us 2 years ago and then came home a year ago said he wanted to restore our family… he is a recovering addict and continued to use until end of Sept… got sober and is now throwing himself in to work to make money for all that he has thrown away… we had an extension until March… we haven’t even began to work on our marriage and hurts so looks as if we will be divorcing… says he loves me and comes around a few times a week but it looks as if my marriage is over. I’m just so, so sad! Icc be would love and need your bee book.❤️

    Thank God! I thought I was the only one in the world who was going through this. I am sorry for the rest of you but so thankful to know that someone knows and understands. LIke CS, there is no way I could comment on facebook. I lived in a very small town (750 people) and it would simply be fodder for the gossip machine. I left my husband in November and moved 30 miles away after being married for 49 years. He has been drinking for two years and has now moved on to smoking marijuana and sleeping with crack whores. He was 75 years old last week, has a serious heart condition. I wait every night for my phone to ring and hear him tell me he has come to his senses–or that he has died. In the meantime, I am living in a 700 square foot house that has already been sprayed twice for roaches. I have little furniture, half the income, This is my reality. How do women live through this without Jesus?
