Have you gone through a divorce? If you are desperate for encouragement and hope without blame and shame, Barb Roose and her guest, Rebecca Mitchell as they discuss the keys to healing after divorce.
As Rebecca says,” Brokenness is a stage, not an identity.” God can heal you from this devastating experience. We talk about the “grenade” devastation of divorce, why people are so judgmental and the key elements to healing.
After 25 years of marriage, Rebecca ended up suffering through an unwanted divorce. She fought for years to save her marriage, but things didn’t turn out as she’d hoped. Like most women going through divorce, Rebecca felt the shame, guilt, loneliness, anger and all of the “what if’s.”
Perhaps you can relate.
For Rebecca, feeling stuck is what pushed her to prayer and asking God for healing. As she immersed herself in God’s truth about her and remembered that she was lovable and worthy.
In her book, From Broken Vows to Healed Hearts, Rebecca identifies the keys to healing as:
- Engaged community
- Biblical Self-Care
- Compassionate Reflective Practices
Rebecca wrote her book to help other women experience God’s healing after divorce. This unique book covers topics like depresion, lonliness, forgiveness and even joy. Each of the twelve chapters includes five days of devotionals and journaling questions. Women can do the book alone or in a group.
“Be patient with the time that recovery takes, to be community to community, and, above all, to seek God.”
