I am not divorced, but have been separated for seven years, ever hoping for reconciliation. So I can relate to much of what Kristin presents in this book. She does a wonderful job of offering rungs on a ladder, so to speak, to those who feel disoriented by the experience, and who wonder, every day, where life's truths still lie.

I saw her review the book twice on Oprah (2005, 2006?), and learned much from that appearance, both times. At first I thought, 'probably a good book, but I'm not divorced

This book is one of my favorite devotional books. I have read it cover to cover several times and still enjoy rereading bookmarked passages. Kristin's insight offers hope and comfort during any time of change in your life....her scripture selections apply to any time one phase of your life is ending and you embark on a new phase....maybe moving to a new city, starting a new job, a child leaving home for college, etc. I highly recommend!

I read this devotional during my divorce and again when another relationship fell apart. It is right on point with the emotions and feelings associated with the ending of a relationship. It points you toward Jesus and offers hope and inspiration.

This book came into my life at the PERFECT moment! I believe Kristin is truly a spiritual genius. Her insight for each day was so profound. She didn't baby herself, and she doesn't baby her readers either. She is open, direct, and relevant. She has the authority to talk about walking through divorce spiritually and never gives an inch to bitterness, self-pity, or regret. Yet I took great comfort each day in reading what she had to say. She constantly directed me straight to the Lord and often ga ...more

"He can take the evil and repurpose it for good. He has not forgotten you."

If I could recommend one book for women going through a divorce, or who have been through one, this would be it! It was such an unbelievable solace, comfort and encouragement to me. Kristin shared from the heart how God had healed her, and there were many similarities to what God showed me as well. Amazing devotional!
