A Guiding Light Through Divorce

Navigating Healing with Faith

December 15, 2023

In the midst of the storm that is divorce, we understand that the journey can seem overwhelming, filled with uncertainty and deep emotional turmoil. It can be difficult to process this grief when everyone around you offers advice or judgment. Not to mention all of the legal and logistical "to-do's." 

Sometimes you need a group of people who are in the trenches with you, where they understand exactly what it means to feel this heartbreak. We believe that God wants you to experience His healing power and discover more of His love, and many times this can be found in community. Below is a list of topics that Divorce Care groups work through in roughly two hour, weekly sessions. You can choose to go to all or pick one that speaks to you. 

Week 1: Deep hurt

Overwhelming emotions and confusion are normal after divorce. This first session prepares you for what emotions to expect and how to set up healthy practices for a successful recovery.

Week 2: Road to recovery

The road ahead after divorce or separation can look rough. You'll learn common roadblocks to recovery and signs that you're making progress.

Week 3: Anger

“What am I supposed to do with all this anger?” You'll learn when anger might be helpful or harmful and how to manage your anger.

Week 4: Grief & Depression

Working through the many emotions of grief and loss after separation or divorce is one of the hardest things a person can go through. This week’s session is all about what to expect with grief and how to handle guilt and depression.

Week 5: Loneliness

Divorce and separation can leave people feeling isolated and alone. This session will help you overcome loneliness and learn what temptations to avoid when feeling lonely.

Week 6: Fears & Anxiety

Fear and anxiety can be paralyzing and prevent participants from moving forward. During this session, we will unpack how to curb the worry and face the future with confidence and hope.

Week 7: Family & Friends

Divorce changes all relationships—not just the marriage. The insights in this session teach how to navigate changes in relationships with former spouses as well as with family and friends.

Week 8: Financial & Legal Issues

This week’s session offers resources to resolve financial and legal concerns. You will learn how to regain financial footing and how to avoid common legal mistakes.

Week 9: Conflict

“How can I handle conflict in a healthy way?” This week, you'll learn how to deal with disagreements and respond well in difficult conversations.

Week 10: Forgiveness

Hearts that are raw from hurt can find it hard to forgive. During this important session, you'll learn what forgiveness really is, how to let go, and why.

Week 11: Your former spouse

Since their lives are still connected, it’s often difficult for group members to know how they should interact with former spouses. This session will help you figure out what’s next and determine if a new type of civil relationship with your ex might be possible.

Week 12: Single living

A person’s identity is often wrapped up in being married. This week’s session will guide you through rethinking your identity and learn how to move forward as a single person.

Week 13: Brighter days

This week focuses on how you can continue to move forward. We'll learn ways to find hope when future difficulties arise and how serving others can contribute to your ongoing recovery.
