Provided to the Tribune

Across America, thousands of hurting individuals have found dramatic help in dealing with the pain caused by divorce and separation through Divorce Care.

Divorce Care is a series of support group discussions and video seminars conducted by people who understand what you are experiencing. Most importantly, you will learn to deal with pain of the past and look forward to rebuilding your life.

Weekly seminar topics are “What’s Happening to Me?,” “The Road to Healing and Finding Help,” “Facing My Anger,” “Facing My Depression”, “Facing My Loneliness,” “What Does the Owner’s Manual Say,” “New Relationships,” “Financial Survival,” “Single Sexuality,” “Forgiveness,” “Reconciliation,” “Moving On” and “Growing Closer to God.”

The meetings begin each week with a professional and informative video seminar for approximately 30 to 45 minutes. That is followed by a quick break and right into roundtable support group and discussions of the material presented. There is also a workbook available that goes along with the seminars.

Divorce Care is nondenominational and features biblical teaching for recovering from divorce and separation. Tahoe Christian Ministries, along with Tahoe Christian Singles Fellowship, is sponsoring the Divorce Care series. Susie and David Meier, founders of Tahoe Christian Ministries, see the need to reach people in the community who are struggling with divorce and separation. Susie, a Christian counselor, said, “There are people all around us, at work at school, in our neighborhoods, even friends and family members who suffer from the effects of a broken marriage or a failing relationship.”

David and Susie both know how devastating this can be. In years past, they say that they have both experienced the anguish of divorce. As recently as last year, David saw firsthand how the Divorce Care series helped him through an otherwise traumatic chapter in his life. He now says, “Divorce Care was the most helpful and supportive thing I had every experienced. I was comforted to know that I was not alone. I found the strength to move past my grief and begin again. I had no idea how much helpful and comforting information was available to people suffering from the ravages of divorce or separation.”

The Meiers say, “At Divorce Care you will become part of a small support group of people who are also experiencing separation and divorce. By interacting with these people you’ll learn there are others who understand what you are feeling and who will be able to offer you encouragement. You’ll also have a chance to talk about the information presented during the seminars. Many participants of Divorce Care say that the support groups are the most helpful part of the program.

Divorce Care will take place from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Sundays beginning Jan. 15 at the home of David and Susie Meier. They suggest people sign up early because space is limited.

All are welcome. For more information call (530) 544-2624.
