955823: Two Homes for Tyler: A Story about Understanding Divorce Two Homes for Tyler: A Story about Understanding Divorce
By Pamela Kennedy & Amy Wummer

Children never want their children to get a divorce and most have a very hard time dealing with it if it happens. They fear everything will change and that can be very scary. Pamela Kennedy tells the story of a child whose parents get divorced, and how the life they have after the divorce is different than what it was before. While things are different for the family, they learn that different doesn't always mean bad. This book includes a "Note to Parents" in which Vicki Wiley--Director of Children's Ministries at First Presbyterian Church in Honolulu--gives suggestions on how parents can talk to their children about divorce and reassure them of their parents' love. Recommended for ages 4 to 7.


975818: Grace and Divorce: God"s Healing Gift to Those Whose Marriages Fall Short Grace and Divorce: God's Healing Gift to Those Whose Marriages Fall Short
By Dr. Les Carter

Never easy for anyone, divorce can be especially painful for Christians trying to follow the teachings of the New Testament. It can result not only in feelings of personal and spiritual failure but also in being ostracized from the church, shunned by friends and family, and alienated from dearly held beliefs and truths. But there is a different but no less faithful way for Christians to view those who divorce. Dr. Carter provides sound theological thinking on divorce and wise, compassionate suggestions for reframing and deepening our understanding of this difficult and controversial topic. Using stories from his practice as a therapist, Dr. Carter offers healing to both those who divorce and those who know and love them. He explains that Jesus never intended us to be so fixed about right and wrong and so judgmental that we lose the ability to love those who do not meet His perfect standards. With kindness and love, he shows that the wonderful gift of God's grace is the best way to respond to people facing this trying life challenge.
