When Christmas Feels Broken
When life changes, so do the holidays. And not always in ways we like or feel good about. My devotion at Proverbs 31 today, When Christmas Feels Broken, talks about this and how hard my first Christmas was as a single mom. But I also recognize that regardless of what might have turned our life upside down, the holidays can often feel joy-less instead of joy-ful. You can read the whole devotion HERE.
Yet for those who have experienced pain and heartache during the holidays due to separation and divorce, whether they are facing it right now for the first time or are years into the journey, I am excited to share about my upcoming book release which will offer hope and help for healing in the new year. If separation and divorce isn't part of your story, I bet you know someone - a friend, family member, co-worker - who is struggling with it. I hope you'll share this information with them because it could be the best Christmas gift they receive.
Watch the video above for more information about my new release happening March 1, 2022, called Living Unbroken: A Divorce Recovery Workbook. This participant workbook accompanies my popular book Living Unbroken: Reclaiming Your Life and Your Heart After Divorce and walks hurting women through a seven-week study of how to heal their hearts after devastation and move forward with faith and confidence. This study can be done alone or with a small group and is for women only. Purchase of the workbook includes a free Small Group Leaders Guide and access to seven encouraging teaching videos.
Pre-order the workbook by February 28th, and receive the Leaders Guide, the first 11 pages of the Workbook content, and the first video for free before the official release!
Why? It is my prayer that when the book releases, many churches around the nation will have already scheduled and gotten prepared to host a small group study for the women in their church or community who desperately need a support group and hope and healing for this difficult journey. I also hope women who are farther along in their healing from divorce will feel led to start small groups in their homes and help other women find joy and hope in camaraderie.
Last but not least - IT'S CHRISTMAS - I WANT TO GIVE AWAY SOME FUN GIFTS!
