When I received the book I read it in one sitting! I wanted to compliment the author on this book she did an excellent job! I was very touched by the way she opened her own heart to share her story to help others, that was extremely generous & unexpected. I wish I would have had a book like this when I got divorced in 1996 from a 10 yr. relationship, I had to figure it out on my own.
I really thought that after all this time (I spent 5 years single) then got re-married and have been married for 8 years now, I thought I was completely over it however reading this book I realized how much baggage I carried into my marriage and how much I did not deal with. My intention was to educate myself a little more to help my own clients and I ended up receiving the benefit! Thank you Lori! I will go through the book again & work on the exercises one by one until all the demons are gone!

Format: Paperback
Going through divorce is one of the hardest things I have ever experienced. I left a 25 year marriage and was lost. I called Churches all over town looking for some type of divorce recovery group. They laughed at me. I wasn't an addict or hadn't lost someone due to death, although it felt that way. Out of shear desperation, I phoned my attorney and the receptionist told me to contact Lori. Lori happened to previously be a divorce attorney in my same town. I looked at this phone number for a few minutes and figured no one would answer but gave it a try anyway. Guess what? She answered and from that moment on my life changed. I couldn't afford her workbook so I went to the library and photocopied all the pages that I needed to write in. A week later my attorney's office provided me with my own copy. I read the workbook cover to cover but couldn't get myself to write in it, I was afraid of the feelings that were going to come out. I signed up for one of Lori's tele-courses and we were assigned homework. That meant I had to write in it. Lori assured me that once I started writing, I wouldn't want to stop. She was right! This workbook is amazing. I have written so much and there are pages that are tattered from the tears that were shed on them. This workbook changed my life around. I am at a amazing place in my life right now. There are still occasional days of sadness but nothing at all like I used to experience. I can stand tall now and say "I am woman, hear me roar". I highly recommend this workbook and other services that Lori offers through her website. I truly believe, I could not be where I am today without her services, products and her wisdom of the pain we go through during divorce.

This book is life changing for men and women who have been through the pain of divorce. No one is prepared for the pain and shock of divorce. Lori walks you through each stage and helps you to survive and then thrive. I was married for thirty years and was not prepared when my wife walked out. Lori's book put me back together exercise by exercise. Her gift is the packaging of information. Her combination of real life experience, with years of advising others and passion to truly see people be happy is a winner. Get this book, and get your life on track after a divorce.

I really like this book. It's a little like my own book, Making Divorce Work, Making Divorce Work: 8 Essential Keys to Resolving Conflict and Rebuilding Your Life which I suppose tells us that the idea of transcending divorce is an idea whose time has come. They're actually great companion pieces---Transcending Divorce includes some things that Making Divorce Work doesn't, and vice versa. Since divorce happens to about 50% of all couples, it's time to stop treating it like some oddity that never happens, and it's time to take the blame, shame, and guilt out of it.

Transcending Divorce helps you to do that, and to work through your grief in a productive way so that your post-divorce life is positive and fulfilling.

I was particularly moved by the Wheel of Life During Divorce on page 5. The exercise asks you to rate various areas of your life, like your relationship with your spouse, finances, social network and self-care on a scale of 1 to 100. You actually draw in the amount (sort of like those blood drive graphs companies post) so you have a visual of what your life looks like.

As someone who's divorced (and happily remarried) whose divorce was not her choice, I think that this exercise would have been VERY powerful for me when my former husband first said he wanted a divorce. If I honestly rated my life, most of those areas would have been very low. So I think it would have pointed out very clearly the concept of "I know you don't wnat this divorce, but what exactly are you holding on to?"

That's a concept that takes a long time for some people to grasp. Let's face it, you deserve to be married to someone who wants to be married to you.
