To those going through a separation or divorce, the holiday sparkle has dimmed and holiday cheer may be a painful memory.
You need the support of family and friends this holiday season, but you will have to be wise in choosing which of those people are going to be supportive and will help you move through this season in a healthy manner.
A safe place to find people who understand is through a divorce recovery support group.
Such a group can provide you with friends who understand what you are going through and who can be a mutual support through the holiday season.
DivorceCare meets weekly to help you meet these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.
Each DivorceCare session has two distinct elements: a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and a small group time to discuss what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members.
DivorceCare is a free, 13-week course that begins at Summerland Baptist Church Sunday, Oct. 20, 5 to 7 p.m.
To sign up or find out more about DivorceCare, call Summerland Baptist Church at 250-494-3881.
