In both sessions you will find: Great speakers
Our speakers are all in the process of recovering from divorce or the death of a spouse. They are real, honest, and able to communicate hope! You will see yourself again and again as you glean from their wisdom.

The entire leadership team is walking the road to recovery. They thought life had ended, too. We have faced much of what you are going through. You will be heard..with compassion, and without judgement.

Small group support
You won't just listen...you'll be encouraged to walk through the healing process with others who will listen to you when you want to talk, comfort you when you feel unlovable, help you see when you don't know which way to go, encourage you when you feel hopeless.

And even laughter
I remember the day the music died; I remember when the telephone stopped ringing. My friends didn't know what to say - and frankly, I wasn't much fun! I remember when laughter disappeared, and I didn't think it would ever return. You'll enjoy learning to laugh again, with compassionate friends!

We care about your children. Growing up in a single parent family is a challenge. Ask about our specially designed kid's program. It is led by a wonderful staff of supportive adults who love and believe in children.

Confident Kids
When parents are hurting, children hurt, too. Concurrently with our recovery program, we have a wonderful Confident Kids program that enables our school-age children to deal with their heartache. It is led by a wonderful staff of supportive adults who love and believe in children. It costs only $7 for each 7-week segment. You can't even hire a babysitter for that!

I thank the Divorce and Grief Recovery Workshop for my survival. It is my deep privilege now to share that learning with you."

George HanselGeorge Hansel, Co-Director, Divorce & Grief Recovery: "Phase 1: was a life - saving event for me. I learned that my experiences and feelings were normal. In Phase 2: Learning about different personality types was a revelation for me. Not only did I gain new friends, but also the tools I needed to view life in a new light. It's my privilege to share my healing with you.
