Mourning the loss of a marriage and facing life as a single mother is not something any married woman thinks will happen to her. But with more than half of all marriages ending in divorce and more than 9.8 million single mothers currently residing in the United States, this is becoming a reality for too many women. What happens then? What's the next step? How is a woman supposed to put her world back together and provide an encouraging environment for the kids when her own life-and heart-are breaking?
Writing with the empathy of someone who has seen and survived divorce, PeggySue Wells offers a practical and encouraging resource for the newly divorced woman. With inspiring Scripture passages, light humor, and sage advice, "Rediscovering Your Happily Ever After" gives vital steps to reestablish emotional and spiritual health-and nurture children at the same time. Whether she asked for this new life or not, each reader will learn how to move forward by replacing old patterns with new habits that bring hope, adventure, and significance.
Countless books teach readers how to save a broken marriage, others explain how to travel through a divorce, but few-if any-speak directly to the single mom whose life is defined by and lived for her children. Being a mom during difficult times such as these is not easy, admits Wells, but with a little hope and trust in God, women can rewrite their fairy-tale ending and discover a new happily-ever-after.
"For women in transition, this is an extra large scoop of hope. Readers will discover that whatever is over our heads is under God's feet."-Pat Palau, wife of internationally-known evangelist Luis Palau
