All too often the response given to parents choosing a divorce is, "Don't worry about your children. They're resilient; they will get through it." However, studies have shown that a divorce has profound effects on a child developmentally, psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually. Even more disturbing is that the greatest effect of a divorce may not be felt until children of divorce become adults. Simply put, this is not a one-time occurrence that a child deals with and then moves on. This is a life-altering event with painful, long-term outcomes.

But there is Good News! God can redeem even the most tragic and seemingly hopeless situations. Through the information and practical help offered in this 18-page resource, you'll learn how to develop a ministry to children of divorce and help both parents and children alike find hope and healing in Christ.
