Divorce hurts --- and just when you think you're "over it," the pain comes back stronger than ever.After 25 years of learning from divorced women and men, we wanted to share some of the best ideas we've discovered by listening and learning. We sat down with divorced people and asked them about the pathway to healing --- what things helped, what things didn't work, where the frustrations were.What we discovered was dozens of wise, strong, mature adults --- who have experienced the end of a marriage and have somehow not only survived, but actually become better persons --- and especially better parents.The "5 Stars" above are for the divorced persons who shared their personal journeys with us --- the highs and lows, sorrows and successes of trying to recover from the end of a marriage.If your marriage has ended, maybe what you need is not an "expert" but rather a friend who has "been there, learned from that" and who is willing to share what she knows --- or what he has learned.Those stories --- drawn from real-life divorced women and men --- fill the pages of "Moving Forward."If you take the time to read this book, thank you. May there be some light for your pathway and some fresh hope for your future within these pages.--- Dr. David & Lisa Frisbie, Executive Directors, The Center for Marriage & Family Studies, Del Mar, California --- authors of eight books including "Raising Great Kids On Your Own" and "Happily Remarried."

Great book for divorce-care groups! In 8 years of leading these groups, this is the first time I've seen people actually doing their reading: they come to group with the chapters read, plus they're reading in advance. So practical, so real, and so easy to read. Any divorce group leader should take a good look at this new book!

An ideal study book for divorce recovery groups and classes. Great price! Story-based illustrations help the reader fully engage. Written with humor, wisdom, and deep insights about how it feels to be divorced in a world that chases perfection.

Gritty, honest, realistic hope! As a writer specializing in stepfamilies, and as a divorce and remarried woman who is raising kids, I received an advance copy of this new book. I couldn't put it down! Not preachy, not academic, this book reeks with the aromas of real life. The most helpful book I've seen for how to deal with your post-divorce emotions and choices.
