Women on the Divorce Recovery Journey

“Even though you don’t know me personally, I just want to say you literally saved my life. I feel as if you are beside me encouraging me every day. The emotions, information you write and the Boot camp CD have made my new unexpected life easier. Your support is priceless. Somehow it is comforting knowing that someone else is walking in my shoes.
I thank God and you for being there for me.”
Pamela H., Huntsville, AL
“Thank you so much for your website & book. I discovered you by “accident”, although I know that God was guiding me to your site. I was searching for help. … the pain, rejection, deception and coldness is hard to bear. Some evenings, before I go to sleep it is so good to see your smiling face on your website. It gives me hope that someday it won’t hurt this acutely. You truly are a blessing to others. Thank you for your daily thoughts, honesty, and encouragement.
Lisa G., Tiger Eastmoor
