Hi guys,
I just wanted to tell you there is an awesome new Christian video support/Bible study series which is 13 weeks and quite widely available that I just joined. We had our first session last night and it was so wonderful. There was a nice mix of men and women and it talks about healing in the midst and after a divorce/separation.

They have a website too - http://www.divorcecare.org

Are any of you familiar with this group.

I'll update you guys.

I have not felt like talking very much lately - very busy. I am still around.

Smiles, Hope

hopeinhim,

Good to see you here again. I was wondering what had happened to you. Good to see you've found a support group you like.

I hadn't heard about divorcecare, but will look into it.

Take care.

Hi SeekerW,
It is nice to be missed! I like to go where "everybody knows my name"!

I am excited about this group..........there was a definite reaction from some members when one of the counselors on the video series said that he thinks it takes 5 years to recover from divorce. Another professional said 2-3 years. I think I am with the second professional!

It talked about how you are weaker in the series to the flesh when you become single again. I pray that I keep my eye on God because I really want what he has in mind for my life. I ever so hope that means a Godly marriage though!

Oh yeah - I have been reading "I surrender all" and it is an amazingly honest book! Thanks for mentioning it!

Love, Hope

Hi Hope,

Good to hear from you. I'd opened up a thread on the Support side on Wednesday looking for you. It's deeply buried by now.

I can't speak for everybody here, but I assure you that this "body" knows your name -- will never forget it, in fact! So "Cheers" to you! :o)

I hope your three children are doing well and are weathering the divorce process well.

Two to three years, or five, to recover from divorce? No wonder some in your group reacted! Does your previous experience seem to confirm either of these time frames?

I wonder what they mean by "recover".

Certainly one can function at an adequate level in a relationship before two years after a divorce. I'm guessing it's more like a year. Maybe I'm just being stubborn. My dad was a doctor, and my two brothers are psychiatrists, so I tend to view medical/counselling advice as being guidelines rather than dogma.

I also hope that God has marriage in mind for me in the future. I don't want to be single the rest of my life.

Take care, and again, "Cheers"!

Love, Seeker

Hope,

I want to let you know I've checked out Divorce Care, and will be attending my first meeting this Thursday. I'm going to need it. It's on the same night as my CoDA group, but I'd been thinking of taking a break from CoDA anyway.

Divorce Care is only available here on the only night I have available -- pretty neat, isn't it? I don't think it's just a coincidence.

Thank you for letting me know about DC. It really seems good.

We can compare notes about it, no?

I'm also going to check out "I Surrender All" from the library, if it's there.

The best to you!

Love, Seekerw

Hope,

Thought I'd let you know ... we're starting a daily Bible devotional (verse or verses) on the "Ask anything ... about the Bible" (I don't recall the exact name) thread. It might be moved onto its own thread in the near future.

I know you're busy, but you're more than welcome to join us. And if you'd ever like, you're welcome to post devotionals as well.

Take care, Seeker

Hope,

I hope you're doing well.

I attended my first divorcecare meeting tonight. The pastor who led it was very relatable. He gave a "guideline" (my word) that it takes one year for every four you were married to heal. That would mean 5 years for me! But only 1-1/4 for you -- better than 2 to 3!

There were six women and two men, including me. The pastor talked the first hour, and we had a group discussion the second hour. We never even got to the video!

I'd like to hear about your second meeting, if you'd like to talk about it. What lesson are you on? My group is on lesson 8.

Hope,

I sure hope you're doing well. I imagine you haven't felt like talking much, which I can understand, seeing what you are undergoing now.

I'll pray for you.

Love, Seeker
