5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for those devastated by the tragedy of divorce 6 July 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the book you are looking for!
I have seen this book make an incredible difference in hundreds of lives. We have given away over 2500 copies of this book over the past 10 years at the Divorce Recovery Workshop which I lead (at Canton First Friends Church and at Willoughby Hills Friends Church). I have received very positive feedback from people who have read this book. Many have read the book over several times as a lifeline that helped keep their heads above water. Many pass their copies on to others who need a helping hand, too.
This book will be a good investment if you want to heal, recover, and grow. The choice that is offered to you in this book is: you can just go through your divorce, or, you can grow through it.
I have known hundreds who have done so, with the help of Jim Smoke's book, Growing Through Divorce.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book throws you a much needed "life preserver." 20 Oct 1999
By P. Herreras - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The stats show that 50% of marriages end in divorse. I never thought I'd be a stat. Divorse is something we hear about, but know nothing about. We can either "go through it," or choose to "Grow Through It." I choose the later and have not regretted it.

Jim Smoke's book is a real world, roll up your sleeves source of balanced advice. Each chapter lays out the "real issues" that you need to be aware of. And each chapter ends with questions that you need to answer. These questions and your answers are what differentiates this book from any other on the market. Even though you're going through the most devestating time of your life, this book throws you a life preserver.

Buy it, read it, and start "growing" through this chaotic time in your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read if you are even thinking about divorce! 2 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Growing Through Divorce was a book I used one weekend in early 1983, to read and study along with a lot of prayer in making my final decision after many years in an abusive marriage and being miserable.
I was Determined that I would NOT be a divorce statistic for many years! I took my vows seriously! I never wanted a divorce! I didn't want to fail in this marriage nor did I want to disappoint God.
After a very relaxing weekend with some intense prayer, reading, LISTENING TO GOD and learning about our marriage, I came to peace with what I had to do; I came feel God's blessing in it all too.
I always keep at least 2 copies of this book for anyone who is even having a problem marriage as it also includes information on HOW TO LIVE WITH or understand aspects of the 7 typical couple types who end in divorce. I learned alot about myself and have had known friends who were able to salvage their marriage after reading this FIRST TOO.
AFTER my divorce, was involved in a wonderful Study Group at church we called, SOS = Starting Over Single.... another one of Jim Smoke's good books.
PRAY PRAY PRAY and then LISTEN to what GOD tells you.
Blessings, Linda Dempster S. CA. near the Chrystal Cathedral in Garden Grove.

3.0 out of 5 stars an adequate book 3 Nov 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this book useful, but most of the value could be condensed to a shorter text. One thing readers should understand (not evident from the book jacket or the excerpts) is that this book has a very strong emphasis on the Christian faith as it relates to one's experience of divorce. If you look at the other posted reviews, you will see that the greatest value was derived from people who shared this cultural background. As someone of another faith, I found that I skipped over at least 50% of the text because it did not apply to me.
