Editorial Reviews

"In Moving Forward After Divorce, David and Lisa Frisbie have found an effective way to offer people healing and hope following the painful experience of divorce. They provide practical guidelines for anyone forced to handle the extremely difficult issues of this life-altering tragedy. Scores of relevant illustrations and very practical, biblically based insights reinforce the guidelines they suggest. The summaries scattered throughout the book and the ‘reflection and growth' questions are excellent for review and continued reference. I recommend this step-by-step manual to pastors and counselors who are looking for ways to guide people through the complicated path of divorce recovery."
--Dr. Dan Casey, Senior Pastor, First Church of the Nazarene

"Moving Forward After Divorce is a book that really understands the pain, embarrassment, and hopelessness of divorce. David and Lisa Frisbie know how to get the broken unstuck from their place of anguish. The book is laid out in a plain and simple way with answers that have been tested time and again. What a tool for the care giver!"
--Chuck Millhuff, Revivalism Coordinator, The Church of the Nazarene

"Moving Forward After Divorce is an encouraging resource for those whose lives have been shattered by divorce. I highly recommend this book to those seeking God's will in the aftermath of divorce."
--Rev. Kevin Hopkins, Pastor, Choctaw Church of the Nazarene

"[The Frisbies] balance the inevitable grief and anger one feels with the possibility of healing and hope...They choose to focus on the practical steps available to formerly married men and women and declare: ‘The ideas here beckon our gaze away from the debris at our feet and out toward the far horizon.'"
--Dr. Gerard Reed, Point Loma Nazarene University

"David and Lisa Frisbie share effective tools for living life in a stepfamily in a humorous yet effective way."
--Stephen and Deanna Kaech, community leaders, Stepfamily Ministry, Saddleback Church

    Divorce hurts --- and just when you think you're "over it," the pain comes back stronger than ever.After 25 years of learning from divorced women and men, we wanted to share some of the best ideas we've discovered by listening and learning. We sat down with divorced people and asked them about the pathway to healing --- what things helped, what things didn't work, where the frustrations were.What we discovered was dozens of wise, strong, mature adults --- who have experienced the end of a marriage and have somehow not only survived, but actually become better persons --- and especially better parents.The "5 Stars" above are for the divorced persons who shared their personal journeys with us --- the highs and lows, sorrows and successes of trying to recover from the end of a marriage.If your marriage has ended, maybe what you need is not an "expert" but rather a friend who has "been there, learned from that" and who is willing to share what she knows --- or what he has learned.Those stories --- drawn from real-life divorced women and men --- fill the pages of "Moving Forward."If you take the time to read this book, thank you. May there be some light for your pathway and some fresh hope for your future within these pages.--- Dr. David & Lisa Frisbie, Executive Directors, The Center for Marriage & Family Studies, Del Mar, California --- authors of eight books including "Raising Great Kids On Your Own" and "Happily Remarried."

    Great book for divorce-care groups! In 8 years of leading these groups, this is the first time I've seen people actually doing their reading: they come to group with the chapters read, plus they're reading in advance. So practical, so real, and so easy to read. Any divorce group leader should take a good look at this new book!

    An ideal study book for divorce recovery groups and classes. Great price! Story-based illustrations help the reader fully engage. Written with humor, wisdom, and deep insights about how it feels to be divorced in a world that chases perfection.

    Gritty, honest, realistic hope! As a writer specializing in stepfamilies, and as a divorce and remarried woman who is raising kids, I received an advance copy of this new book. I couldn't put it down! Not preachy, not academic, this book reeks with the aromas of real life. The most helpful book I've seen for how to deal with your post-divorce emotions and choices.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Dr. David & Lisa Frisbie
Located in: Del Mar, California
Submitted: March 21, 2006

    Tell us a little about yourself.  We're readers, writers, and family counselors. We love to travel --- this line of work makes that not only possible, but constant. We especially enjoyed touring China and climbing parts of the Great Wall; China is an amazing country with a bright future.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  We've been learning from divorced persons for more than two decades. The best of their wisdom is in this book! It's practical, down-to-earth reality, not some kind of high-brow theoretical advice.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Divorce hurts: this book won't change that. Our goal is to help people find a way to "move forward" and begin making progress in positive directions. This book provides practical, realistic first steps.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Our heroes include the divorced women and men who are out there, every day, trying to move forward and experience a life that is fulfilling and fruitful. We've met them, we've learned from them -- their stories are in this book.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Yes! If you are divorced --- you can move forward! God loves you --- not in a trite or trivial way, but with His whole heart. God cares about the struggles you face, and God will share them with you. He will partner with you in faithful and lasting ways.
