Beyond Divorce Paperback – September 16, 2013
From the Author
My journey toward writing an award winning book started some seven years ago. I went through a divorce after 30 years of marriage, with four grown children, and at the time, five grandchildren. It turned my world upside down and turned me inside out. The demise of our family unit was more than I could bear. I looked at my situation every which way and couldn't find a way to save both me and my family. I knew I had to chose me or lose me.
Going through the divorce experience opened doors I could not have imagined. There was a purpose in me that would not be quieted. My business, Life By Design Coaching, was born at that time. I'd been living my life by default, following what others expected. It was time to design my life. Little did I know that there was treachery to traverse first.
The time between ending one part of life and starting a new one is like being between trapezes--without a net. Words don't convey the depth of fear we experience when our world is breaking to pieces and we are shaken to our core. This shaking is what makes possible creative rearranging into something you want--but we don't know that when we're in it.
I know hundreds of people who have had similar divorce experiences and arrive at the other side with awareness, peace, and renewed vision. I call this The Divorce Door: using the divorce experience as a passage to a more vital you and a more vital life. I knew my work in the world was to help others turn their divorce into a creative experience. Beyond Divorce: Stop the Pain, Rekindle Your Happiness, and Put Purpose Back in Your Life, was born.

Jeannine explained to me on my first call to her. I didn't like that much in that moment. It challenged everything I thought was true for me . And yet, in the same moment , I realized that she had opened my heart and invited me to begin work on myself in a conscientious, responsible, loving, and , yes, spiritual way. I got to read her book, Beyond Divorce, several years after the classes I had completed with her. Reading the book, I realized that I am a work in progress and following her expert advice (try the exercises) will just make life better, for me, and the people around me.
This is seemingly a book about how to deal with divorce. I would say it is a book about how to deal with life .
I find the book very kindly written. It explains things without being judgmental. It is always positive and encouraging. Divorce is not the end. In many ways, it is just a beginning. Jeannine helps make this very clear with such understanding and hope. I am in a much more peaceful place after reading the book and taking classes with Jeannine.
The book is so well written and easy to read. So much important information is given, that I have read it several times and come away each time with new thoughts that I missed the previous times.
I highly recommend this book not just for divorcing or divorced persons, even for people who are struggling in their marriage.
