Renee Smith Ettline has a beautiful way of expressing what we all feel no matter our path in life. She says, "You can't control all circumstances, but you can work within your reality to make your life better. You can exercise the power of choice to move in a positive direction. Furthermore, you can draw on the healing power of God to support and guide you along the way."
I love how Ettline shows through personal experience, the experiences of others, as well as her work in After Divorce Ministries, LLC, how to overcome the difficulties of divorce. I love how I feel empowered by her words. Any person going through a divorce will be eager to take on the steps that she suggests to improve their life; and for those not experiencing divorce they can better understand those who have.
Ettline takes a struggling individual beyond just "getting through divorce." She doesn't just draw out the steps, she adds the feeling and testimony of God to extend the reader's learning and focus. Read a scripture. Answer some questions. Talk with God. Act. Going through a divorce is anything but easy, but with God's help, getting to the other side is possible.
I recommend this book for anyone going through divorce, and for their loved ones who really want to know what going through a divorce is all about.

This book has a great format with lots of help for going through this process. It gives good Biblical guidance and leads you to healing through thoughtful questions on many topics. It's very easy to follow. The chapters are arranged in a logical progression, but also lend themselves to coming back later when you're ready to approach a particular issue. This is a book to refer back to often. A great book for group study. - Nola
