This is the book you are looking for!
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.

The stats show that 50% of marriages end in divorse. I never thought I'd be a stat. Divorse is something we hear about, but know nothing about. We can either "go through it," or choose to "Grow Through It." I choose the later and have not regretted it.

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.

Going through a divorce as a Christian is devastating! It goes against against everything that I hold dear & true to my heart & values. A dear friend bought me this book in the middle of the worse time of my life, and it was a healing ointment to my soul. It helped me realize that I can still call myself a "Christian" even though I was going through a divorce. How does a Christian take the vows that you said and meant and turn away from them. Even though the divorce was not my desire, I still had to go through the pain & heartbreak. I have since then bought 5 of these books to give to friends who are facing the same thing I did.

Growing Through Divorce was a book I used one weekend in early 1983, to read and study along with a lot of prayer in making my final decision after many years in an abusive marriage and being miserable.
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.

Jim Smoke has been working with divorce recovery for some 20 years. His compassionate insights are incredibly helpful for those facing the pain of divorce. Jim helps the person, step by step, through what is likely the most painful time of his/her life. I'm using this book in my Divorce Recovery support group. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I enjoyed this book a lot. Helped me get beyond the guilt, rejection and depression and into new thinking, new beginnings, and planning a future post-divorce. Very easy read. Questions at the end of each chapter help you go over themes and topics and gets you thinking. Would recommend. It does have strong religious undertones, which might be a turn off for non-believers. Very positive take on divorce and creating a future.

I bought this book shortly after my own divorce; it helped me than and it keeps on helping me! Thank you, Jim Smoke, for such an honest look at the problems and difficulties we face in recovering from this kind of trauma. I have heard that a new edition may be coming out --- if so, that's great, but this edition is still useful to anyone who is divorced. I give this book my highest possible recommendation.

I purchased this book as a recently separated person of a very long-term marriage primarily because it is used as the text for a local separation and divorce recovery group. It is easy to read for such a heavy subject, gives clear and concise advice, and is, in general, supportive and helpful for the one who has been left. Some of it is God-based or spiritually-based, but not "preachy," nor does it espouse a particular religious doctrine, (other than a few references to "Christian.") I recommend it as one of the most helpful books of this type.
