Hello Betsy,

What an inspiring and consoling article. I just finished reading "It's OK" and after over tweenty-five years since my divorce, so much of your article so vividly struck chords with my heart strings. IT IS OK and through all that you shared, I truly feel you reached out to so many. I remember the feelings still and to me after my divorce, my life in the aftermath clearly resembled the life of a diseased and contagious piece of leftover trash. The world tries to console, but truly does not know what to do with us. My church family was even more inept as they attempted to reach out , however, I was still 'tainted' and 'unaapproachable' to so many. The great side is that it is OK and that literally years later, I am still receving occasional apologies from people who NOW tell me they were confused and felt that they inappropriately treated me THEN. What a beautifully written and emotionally explicit article. I thank you.

Thank you for the article on divorce. I am going through my second divorce, yes second. The pain was so great that all I could do was fall to my knees and ask God for a supernatural healing because simple encourage would not suffice this time. Your article spoke to my heart this morning, I needed each word. I am in the process of completing book about my own experiences. It is amazing how God uses you in your darkest hour to do something you never would have imagined. Thank you for your honesty and for letting me know that it's okay.

Let me know if this ok.

Kind regards

Hello Betsy,

I just wanted to thank you for being real in your blog, "What Every Christian Woman Should Know About Divorce." As I was reading it, I thought to myself, "Finally, someone who gets it!" I was excited to read something that was written by a Christian who chose not to sugar coat things. The truth is that we're all human and sometimes we do get ugly; but, the difference lies in how we handle that ugliness--whether we choose to acknowledge it, confess it, repent, reconcile if possible, and move foward knowing that we've been forgiven by God or whether we choose to continue to walk blindly in that ugliness. I had a really tough time going through mine because I was either surrounded by those who'd never personally experienced it (who all meant well, but were the worst encourageers) or those who were experiencing it, but were hiding behind anything and everything that would prevent them from actually experiencing its effects, not allowing themselves to learn and grow from it. Although I still have "moments" of those "God, it's SO not fair!" tantrums, the "Why do I have to be the responsible one?" fits, and the "I wish I could just live in my own bubble for the rest of my days on Earth" daydreams, I can still recognize how God has been working (and continues to work) in my life towards healing and a better life. Once again, thank you, Betsy, for being real.

Hi Betsy! I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed ready your article on divorce and IT'S OKAY. Every detail and situation you listed I went through in my divorce 5 years ago and still feel a lot of those same emotions. THANK YOU for confirming that it IS okay to feel all of these emotions and it WILL all be better one day. A friend shared your article on Facebook. I'm so glad I clicked on it and read it. I almost didn't. After 21 years of marriage, my husband said he wasn't "in love" with me anymore. I felt my soul being ripped from my body.....slowly. It took a year and a half to accept it and learn to live with it because he had moved on and I knew I needed to eventually put on my proverbial big girl panties and do the same. It took me that whole first year and a half to LET IT GO and realize IT'S OKAY and I WAS GOING TO BE OKAY!!!! After reading your article, it was confirmation that all of my feelings were very natural after divorce and still having some of those feelings.....well.....IT'S OKAY!!!!!!!!
I saw in your blog that you're from Louisiana. Shreveport? Or maybe you just did a book signing there at Barnes and Noble in December. I was just at that store last night. I'm from GA (Go Dogs!!!) but visiting my sister who lives in Bossier City. I believe I'll be going back to Barnes and Noble before I leave to go back to Georgia and hopefully find a couple of your books to read on the ride home. By the way, I have NEVER been one to just read books. I can count on both hands the total number of books I've ever read. You have struck a nerve deep down in my heart and soul and I want to hear more. THANK YOU for using your God-given talent so that it might touch others. God bless you in your future writings and success!!
