Author, Gary Richmond, is a pastor and leads a divorce support group based in CA that has been in existence for more than 10 years. His sound advice is practical, heart-felt, and INVALUABLE! One could say that the book's 16 chapters fall into three major areas of support: (1). the parent & family in crisis...what's happening to us and how to survive, (2). 6 chapters focused solely on the children's responses (age specific), what you can do to give them the emotional support needed, and God's promise of help, and (3). processing it all, healing, moving on. There's also a bonus that I've NOT found in the numerous books about divorce I've read so far, and that's the section of FORGIVING...God's and yours! It's the firm foundation of your future victory and your children's! Be gentle with yourself; get this book and another: "Helping Children Survive Divorce" by Dr. Archibald D. Hart. You would not have read this far if you didn't truly want the best for your children despite the divorce. You will all be changed; it's your job to accept healing from God and to channel that to your children. Excellent "Single Parent Bookshelf" at the end listing books on various topics of concern to (single) parents where one can look for additional information. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book!
