When Happily Ever After Shatters: Seeing God in the Midst of Divorce & Single Parenting Paperback 

by Sue Birdseye

With abandonment and adultery, there is no five-step plan for survival, but there can be hope and healing. When Happily Ever After Shatters will be a comfort to those who grieve in solitude, and a hope-filled practical guide for those whose lives have changed irrevocably. Susan Birdseye will help readers learn to honor God when there is no hope of restoration, survive abandonment in and out of marriage, glorify God during a divorce, walk children gracefully through the crisis as a single parent, please God as a single person, again, and truly forgive the one who wronged them.

The Mended Heart: God’s Healing for Your Broken Places Paperback

by Suzanne Eller

Brokenness happens. Tragedy, sin, and the painful choices of others all have the ability to disrupt an otherwise contented life. And as a result of our heartache, we often attempt to fix our own brokenness–with disastrous results.

If you’ve tried to heal, but keep ending up in the same place–whether the battle is in your heart or out in the open where everyone can see–The Mended Heart is for you. In this book, author Suzanne Eller tells it like it is: people throw quick fixes at you or tell you to pull yourself up by your bootstraps (whatever that means). More important, though, she shares the powerful truth of Jesus’s mission as outlined in Luke 4:18-21: He came to set free all those who are oppressed and in need of mending.

Going Solo: Hope and Healing for the Single Mom or Dad Paperback

by Robert Beeson

As parents face the difficult reality of a broken home, a sense of being completely overwhelmed can shut down the perspective they need to find restoration. Parents need to know that they can choose to define this season of their lives, instead of becoming defined by circumstances. They can deliberately look toward God and come to a deeper understanding of His true nature, power, and intimate care.
