The book, Divorce to Wholeness, is a healing balm to those hurting because of divorce. Chapter 1 tells the story of Sharon Kay Ball, a professional therapist who endured the trauma of divorce because of betrayal and infidelity. The separated and divorced can relate to her pain, but Sharon doesn't stop there. She offers the reader hope and healing, a redeemed life. Sharon Kay Ball now helps others in their own journey. Chapter 2 presents a Bible study, but not just any ordinary Bible study. This one extends a helping hand to the wounded woman and gives her Bible promises to ponder and cling to and questions to help her verbalize her thoughts and feelings and feel hope again. Chapter 3 leads the woman through the steps to freedom through shock and denial, anger, sadness and bargaining, acceptance and hope. The concrete suggestions at the end give mothers going through divorce specific ways to walk their children through the divorce process. I highly recommend this book.
We live in a broken fallen world, and sometimes need help in making sense of the hurtful, painful things in our lives. These books are real stories and can help women find freedom from the paralyzing effects of betrayal, fear and deception through the liberating truths of Scripture.
The Freedom Series deals with many issues that I have come across during the decades I have counseled people at my church. Each book is great for its designed application. However, the Fear to Courage book stands out the most to me since so many are driven by fear. This book is so Bible-based, very direct, easy to understand, and also applicable. It is refreshing to have a resource that doesn't just talk about an issue, but shows how to apply biblical concepts to it. I highly recommend this series!
