“Divorce is a painful reality even Christian families are not immune to in our society,” says author Stephanie Quattlebaum. “Believers need to understand that no failure is final.” It is this understanding Quattlebaum urges readers to accept in her new book, “Healing Touches: A Devotional Journal for Divorced Christians” (published by CrossBooks).
“Healing Touches” is a devotional journal for divorced Christians. God’s complete forgiveness, unending compassion and steadfast guidance are central themes through the book. Each devotional provides a personal response prompt and prayer for readers to personalize their reading and keep a written record of God’s faithfulness through their divorce experience.
An excerpt from “Healing Touches”:
“Divorce seems hopeless. You feel all alone with no one willing to rescue you. In your own strength, you take small steps toward healing, but you stumble and fall. It seems everyone else is moving on with his or her life and making strides with families, careers, and life goals. However, you feel stuck in a pit of shame, guilt, loneliness, and despair. Convincing yourself healing can’t take place, you accept the situation as grim. You give up and face a defeated life as a divorced Christian. But should you?”
Quattlebaum hopes that “Healing Touches” will help believers affected by divorce. “No matter what, you can work through your divorce to become a stronger person – one without continual chaos and uncertainty, but stability and reassurance, with contentment and hope.”
