by Dana Hood
Writing out of her own experience of a heartbreaking divorce, Dana Hood shares 53 devotional messages to encourage and inspire women going through divorce.
The author writes: "Through the excruciating pain of divorce, the Lord was truly changing my name. From abandoned to welcomed. From rejected to cherished. From defeated to victorious. At times I listen to the deceiver's lies and forget my name. But the Father is always there to remind me of my true identity: I am his."
"And so it is with you. If you will call on him, he will change your name, too. What names do you carry? Lonely? Abandoned? Bitter? Hopeless? Go to the Father, and let him speak your true name into your heart."
A practical and sensitive word of encouragement to all who are going through the stress and difficulties of divorce.
