Losing a hope-filled dating relationship is a stressful and painful event. And when it seems to occur again, again, and again, is ice cream the only refuge for a Christian single?
As one who has walked this road before, author Jackie M. Johnson says an emphatic, "no!"
While most books for singles tell readers how to get the next guy, When Love Ends and the Ice Cream Carton is Empty encourages a healthy healing process. Practical and biblically based, each chapter guides the reader through a metaphorical day of restoration. Twilight recognizes and deals with endings, night grieves the loss and heals emotional pain, dawn awakens hope, and day is the new beginning based on the solid assurance of Christ. When Love Ends will help heal your heart--and help change your life.
Chapters conclude with discussions questions for individual or group study, helpful Bible verses, and a prayer.

Tell us a little about yourself. My first book, Power Prayers for Women, has touched the lives of 200,000 readers. I grew up in the Milwaukee suburbs, and graduated from Trinity International University (Deerfield, Illinois). For the past 10 years, I've led a singles groups and have a heart for building community with singles. Currently, I live at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
What was your motivation behind this project? People who are going through a relationship breakup are usually sad, mad, hurt, or angry; they're feeling a lot of emotions. But no one ever teaches you HOW to handle loss of love. WHEN LOVE ENDS is a helpful resource that's both biblical and practical. It provides hope and encouragement to help you heal your heart and change your life.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Hope. Encouragement. Practical ideas. Inspiration. The book covers topics like dealing with your emotions, finding and giving forgiveness, rebuilding your shattered self esteem, making healthier choices next time, and more.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? While I have dated a lot, I've had three major breakups in my life. During my own times of pain, I couldn't find a resource to help me, so from my own heart healing journey and lessons from loss I wrote this one. My hope is that others will find the help, hope and healing they need so they can be ready for the lasting love they truly desire.
