My prayer for "Dealing with Divorce" has always been that it would bring hope and healing to thousands of hurting teens. Teens - I know you are out there, many of you suffering in silence. How do I know? Because I was once just like you. My own parents divorced when I was a toddler. My mom then remarried and divorced during my teen years. Divorce is the worst. Let's be honest for a moment, shall we? No words, medication, counselors, or programs will "fix" your life. Not even this book will make all your problems magically disappear. But here is the secret: only your Savior can bring peace to your hurting soul. If you are willing to do some difficult work, this book will draw you closer to Him and bring about the healing you desire. Are you ready? Then let the journey begin.

"Sadly, Christian teens are not immune to the effects of divorce. Even among Christian families, the divorce rate is more than 50 percent. The emotions and issues that are brought up after divorce can leave teens feeling lost and confused about their family and their faith. In this six-week study, you can help students deal with the thoughts and feelings they're experiencing after a divorce--whether it happened recently or when they were younger. With engaging stories and thought-provoking questions, students will explore issues of anger, guilt, forgiveness, family, and more through a biblical lens, offering them hope and healing. This leader's guide will give you the tools to help you lead students through this study--whether you have experienced divorce in your lifetime or not. You'll find that when you give students the opportunity to open up and examine the feelings involved with divorce, much-needed healing can begin in their lives."
