    Starting over...it's not as easy as it sounds, is it? But, you've made it through the pain of divorce, and you are eager for a new beginning. God stands ready to help-He is the God of possibilities. As you look toward the future, you may begin to ask questions about what a new life might look like. Will I ever remarry, you wonder. Do I want to remarry? There are other questions: How much time should pass after a marriage ends before it's wise to explore a new friendship or romance? Am I ready-emotionally, spiritually, financially? Is my family prepared? Do I need to be completely put-back-together before I can think about dating again or being remarried? Dave and Lisa Frisbie have spent 20 years studying the post-divorce family, and have been dubbed 'America's Remarriage Experts.' In Dating After Divorce, they share stories of adults who chose to remain single after divorce and explore why that choice might make sense for you. They also share stories of people who chose to begin dating and eventually to remarry. Dating after Divorce will help you gauge your readiness and evaluate your options, as you move forward to discover a new life and embrace all God has in store.Reviews'Everyone who reads this new book will understand very quickly that they are not alone, and will receive help from the practical steps outlined along with Godly inspiration.

    A book for anyone faced with a midlife divorce, this guide walks readers through surviving the emotional and practical fallout of a marriage's end--and with humor and sympathy, urges readers to see the bright future waiting just ahead. The shock of a divorce can be devastating for women who thought, after decades of marriage, that their relationships were secure, their futures safe. Suzy Brown was one of those women. When her marriage of over twenty-five years ended because of her husband's affair with a younger woman, she found herself overwhelmed by the numbers of women she knew in her same situation. She started a small support group that has proven invaluable, and now she's sharing with readers what she and her friends learned through their experiences of tragedy, healing, and joy.
