The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

My name is Cathy and I reside in Michigan. I started this site because I have traveled the excruciatingly painful path of divorce and all that goes with it. I felt like an epic failure and was ashamed and embarrassed that “I could not hold my marriage together.” My value and worth were intricately attached to my relationship and when the relationship was gone…so was my estimation of my value and self-esteem.

I am a Christian and I openly admit that I lost hope for my future. I thought “Man, what is wrong with me that not even my own husband wants me?” If you have experienced divorce, you can more than likely relate to my feelings. The rejection and abandonment by a spouse is the equivalent of an emotional hand grenade that has been set off in your life.

For this reason, I started this blog. It is my intention to be very forthcoming and transparent about my experiences because I believe that people connect to “real people”. I want to share my days, months and years since my divorce in 2012 and let you see how God took me from losing my spouse, home, car, financial stability, dignity, self-esteem, and almost – my mind to NEW LIFE! It has taken TIME, but it has been worth it.

It is my hope that my “Journey” helps you or someone you know who may still be in the “Pit” of despair from this horrific experience to realize they can live again, restoration is a real possibility, and God can give you a life even more fulfilling than the one you may be grieving at this present moment.

I invite you to read my posts even if you are not Christian. You are still human. However, I am convinced you will find a “connection” on some level if you are struggling with the aftermath of divorce.

I care deeply about others and I have been healed and want to be used by God to bring healing to others.
