If divorce has left you desperate for biblically based guidance, encouragement, and hope, you'll find what you're looking for in this courageous, powerful book.
When Rebecca Mitchell's marriage crumbled after twenty-five years, she went through every stage of grief. Her journey to healing led to a conviction that others could be helped in the same way: through engaged community, biblical self-care, and compassionate reflective practices. And the women she's guided down their own paths to restoration agree.
This unique book covers topics such as depression, loneliness, forgiveness, and even joy. Each of the twelve chapters includes five days of devotionals and journaling questions. You'll learn to maintain optimism for healing, to be patient with the time recovery takes, to be committed to community, and, above all, to seek God. With Mitchell's wise reassurance, you'll discover that brokenness is a stage, not an identity.
From Broken Vows to Healed Hearts sensitively addresses the pain of divorce and offers practical steps toward healing. Rebecca Mitchell's voice is honest, relatable, and encouraging. Readers will find comfort and hope as they follow her gentle pathway through Bible study, prayer, and reflection.
