When divorce happens, lives get turned upside down. What was normal becomes strange; what was predictable becomes uncertain. For the single parent dealing with such a shift, it is reassuring to hear repeatedly the grounding truths found in Scripture.
The grief of divorce shouldn't be hurried or glossed over. The pain and rearrangement of life that comes with divorce is devastating, and working through all of it can take longer than one would imagine. It's much more than a broken relationship; it's a complete life change.
