Description

The Earthquake Called Divorce Hits It levels everything once thought to be true and stable. Its devastation is unbelievable. In the rubble are broken relationships, unfulfilled dreams, destroyed identities and undefined futures. Divorce is hard enough on adults, but for children - vulnerable victims - this landslide can be overwhelming. As parents deal with their own hurts, disappointments and anger, children take a back seat. Lacking the maturity to see the big picture, confusion enters and unhealthy coping strategies are used as they struggle to keep their balance. This is the story of ten-year-old Katie, a real person, whose world is crumbling before her very eyes. She moves from what is familiar and steps into a surreal world where she is forced to examine her emotions. Strange, deep emotions that are hard to voice. I love both parents. How can I choose or take sides? I feel so helpless. Everything is falling apart, and I don't know how to make it better. How did I cause this? What does my future look like? Am I really loved or will my parents forget about me? In my parents' new lives, will I be abandoned or replaced? I feel so lost. I just don't understand. Children, reading this book will help bring some order to your lives when you realize that you are not alone in what you are experiencing and feeling. Parents, reading this book will give you insights into your children's thoughts and feelings. Reading the book together will open doors for discussion which are so necessary for understanding. Readers, get God's point-of-view as He talks with Katie. Feelings need to be taken care of during this transition time. Otherwise they will be sent to the deepest recesses of the heart. A wise person once said, "Emotions buried alive never die." Without God's healing, they will resurface. They will haunt. They will prevent living life to the fullest.show more
