If you are in the aftermath of a divorce, you might feel as if you have no compass to guide you through this brand new territory. That was certainly true for me. I read a ton of books trying to understand what happened in my marriage – even wondering at times if I did wrong by divorcing. I wanted to connect more deeply with God. I struggled with forgiveness. I wondered where I fit in the Christian community, and I was anxious about what the future held for me. Would I ever find love again … one that would last and not hurt me?

Linda M. Kurth is a writer and a divorced and remarried Christian. In going through the divorce, she experienced a dichotomy of responses from the Christian community. After sharing some of those experiences in her upcoming memoir, God, the Devil, and Divorce, she's heard many stories of divorced Christians who have struggled with the same issues. This blog invites divorced Christians to tell their stories with the goal of encouraging churches to resist condemnation and become a source of healing and grace.
