After my husband and I separated I went into overdrive to find what had happened, ...how did we arrive to this situation? This could not be happening to me. I read many christian books on marriage and separation. All of them were great inspiration, and I believe God used them all to point to my sins, to show me where I had failed, with clarity and love. But I must say this book, by Linda Rooks, is the book I still continue reading. The vulnerability and the honesty with which Linda shares her story, step by step from beginning to end, makes you feel you are sharing with a friend who understands. Someone who does not take the pain away or justifies your actions, but someone who points you to God, holding your hand. Not two stories are ever the same, but sin is sin regardless of its form and our Lord God is the only one that matters. I would recommend this book to absolutely anyone going through the pain of separation "...to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11.
This meet is a great daily devotional for anyone dealing with separation or divorce. I read a short chapter everyday along with my daily Bible verses and it helps so much. This book is geared towards women, but the themes apply to men as well.
I am seperated now from my husband and this book has helped me so much. Jesus Christ is the ultimate healer but it helps to read a book from someone who has walked the road I'm on now. It looks like I will be getting divorced but I pick this book up and it helps me not to give up. Don't focus on the circumstances but give it all to God!
This is a great book...I can't tell you how many days I have sat down to read this book and how what is was saying was just what I needed to hear that day! God is good that way. This is really helping me through one of the most trying times of my life. If read daily it is a great guide in getting through each day and realizing you aren't alone and there is hope.
