I have seen this book make an incredible difference in hundreds of lives. We have given away over 2500 copies of this book over the past 10 years at the Divorce Recovery Workshop which I lead (at Canton First Friends Church and at Willoughby Hills Friends Church). I have received very positive feedback from people who have read this book. Many have read the book over several times as a lifeline that helped keep their heads above water. Many pass their copies on to others who need a helping hand, too.
This book will be a good investment if you want to heal, recover, and grow. The choice that is offered to you in this book is: you can just go through your divorce, or, you can grow through it.
I have known hundreds who have done so, with the help of Jim Smoke's book, Growing Through Divorce.
Jim Smoke's book is a real world, roll up your sleeves source of balanced advice. Each chapter lays out the "real issues" that you need to be aware of. And each chapter ends with questions that you need to answer. These questions and your answers are what differentiates this book from any other on the market. Even though you're going through the most devestating time of your life, this book throws you a life preserver.
Buy it, read it, and start "growing" through this chaotic time in your life.
I was Determined that I would NOT be a divorce statistic for many years! I took my vows seriously! I never wanted a divorce! I didn't want to fail in this marriage nor did I want to disappoint God.
After a very relaxing weekend with some intense prayer, reading, LISTENING TO GOD and learning about our marriage, I came to peace with what I had to do; I came feel God's blessing in it all too.
I always keep at least 2 copies of this book for anyone who is even having a problem marriage as it also includes information on HOW TO LIVE WITH or understand aspects of the 7 typical couple types who end in divorce. I learned alot about myself and have had known friends who were able to salvage their marriage after reading this FIRST TOO.
AFTER my divorce, was involved in a wonderful Study Group at church we called, SOS = Starting Over Single.... another one of Jim Smoke's good books.
PRAY PRAY PRAY and then LISTEN to what GOD tells you.
Blessings, Linda Dempster S. CA. near the Chrystal Cathedral in Garden Grove.
