We wish we had this site when we were going through our own divorces.
San Clemente, CA (PRWEB) December 04, 2012
The holidays can be a lonely time for many, including people who have recently divorced. Dr. Amy Osmond Cook and Lisa LaBelle, founders of HopeAfterDivorce.org, are hoping to change that.
“The idea for HopeAfterDivorce.org sprung from the feedback we received from our recently published book, Hope After Divorce,” Cook explains. “For the past few months, we have received supportive emails from readers who have appreciated the book’s message. One reader emailed that the book literally saved her life, and she keeps it on her bedside table and reads it every night. Lisa and I have been encouraged by the hope it has given readers, and we wanted to expand upon the message of the book. So we created a site that is easy to navigate with lots of helpful information.”
LaBelle concurs, “Amy and I both wish we had a book like this to guide us when we were experiencing our own divorces. When you go through the process, sometimes you feel helpless and hopeless. This website helps to affirm that a life of happiness is possible after divorce.”
HopeAfterDivorce.org includes new and previously published articles from experts across the country. Categories focus on relationships, finances, legal issues, children, and overall well-being. There is also a community forum where individuals can login anonymously to participate in online discussions about divorce-related issues. In addition, users can connect with panel of divorce experts specializing in various aspects of divorce.
A shopping cart with divorce resources vetted by our Hope After Divorce experts is also included in the site. They currently include Hope After Divorce, co-authored by Lisa LaBelle, Amy Osmond Cook, Ph.D., and Jennifer Cummings, Ph.D.; DIVORCE: Think Financially, Not Emotionally, by Jeffrey A. Landers, CDFA; and How They Stash the Cash, by Mark Kohn, CPA, CFE. HopeAfterDivorce.org is also represented on social media outlets including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and blogspot.com.
