Happy New Year!

I realize those words may ring a bit “hollow” as you face the start of a New Year following your divorce in the past year.

It is so easy for others to say “it’s time to move on”, yet for those who have walked the difficult path of divorce, it really is never that easy as memories cloud our vision of the future.

I trust you are doing well, and God is richly blessing your marriage!

Dear Elizabeth and Jonathan:

Congratulations on your 25th wedding anniversary. What a great accomplishment!

As you know, God made marriage as one of the highest forms of worship and one of the great institutions there is here on earth. He even uses the bride and bride groom as an analogy for His love of the church and for His coming return as well.  That alone tells us how special the marriage bond is to Him.

With this being the first Wedding Anniversary you will spend since the passing of your wife/husband, I want to assure you that we are thinking of you, and praying that God will undergird you with His strength.

I realize that nothing can ever really replace the love in your heart that you feel for your husband/wife that you were married to until his/her passing.  Dreams shared, mountains climbed, valleys crossed, and much more was part of that special relationship that you enjoyed.

I know that sometimes it is hard to hold onto faith and trust in God, especially when things have gone wrong in our lives, relationships have fallen apart and we can see and feel nothing apart from the hurting of our hearts.

At such times, it is important to remember that God is love and he resides in our hearts.  He is feeling everything we feel and it is at these times, if we let him, that God will heal our wounds. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Dear [NAME],

Your family at [CHURCH NAME] would like to extend our prayers and support to you and your family this Christmas season while your husband is serving in the military. We applaud your strength.

The Bible encourages us to find comfort in our brothers and sisters in Christ and I want you to know that we are here for you. I can only imagine how difficult this can be, especially during the holidays.

Dear Member:

Life is full of so many challenges. This is especially true for single fathers who are faced with working with hectic schedules, balancing their professional and personal lives, and striving to being a loving, supportive role model for their child(ren). Does this sound familiar? Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Dear Church Member:

Parenting is a tough job! As a single parent, the challenges of raising children by yourself can be particularly difficult. Not only are you a sympathetic and loving mother, but also a disciplinarian and provider at the same time. With so many demands and expectations placed on you, it is no wonder that being a single parent can be very stressful. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
