What’s on my heart

I don’t know if I can hear another story about a family or couple struggling right now. A couple near and dear to my heart have separated. I’ve heard way too many stories like this this week.

It is the only hope through these trials.

I got an unexpected phone call this week. The person that called me was a member of my church and had heard I was going through divorce. He basically told me that he understood what I was going through and wanted to help. Later that week I found myself in his home listening to his story. He told me about DivorceCare and how it helped him. DivorceCare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. It’s a 13 week support group (consisting of a video series and workbook) that helps people during various stages of divorce or separation. The church next door to mine was hosting a group (Chandler Christian Church). So my friend came with me to my first week there and introduced me to some of the leaders. I was grateful to meet others that were going through the same thing I was. This was especially helpful because the holidays were here and I didn’t want to be alone. I was amazed on how each session touched on the many emotions I was experiencing. I highly recommend DivorceCare if you are going through something like this.

This book doesn’t just talk about the hope of reconciliation, but also how to approach this period with a biblical mindset. It has helped me make better decisions during this tough time and how to be a better father to my kids while we work through our issues.
