Shelley Grieser – Christian Divorce Coach
Although I was a child of divorce at the age of 9, experiencing divorce as an adult was devastating. It was a humbling experience that moved me to a whole new level of compassion and understanding. Divorce gave me a much greater appreciation and understanding of my mother. I realize, as a single parent, my mother did the best she could with what she had and what she knew.
Despite my parents divorce, I held onto the dream of getting married and living happily ever after. I was determined to do things differently than my parents. I became intent on getting a college education in case I ever had to support myself and children. I decided I would wait until I was atleast in my mid-twenties before I got married, as I would be wiser and more mature! I was a picky dater and wanted to do whatever I could so that I never ended up divorced. So, how did all of that work out for me? Well, I graduated from college and married in my early thirties.
When my children were very young my husband informed me he was not happy. We tried counseling, he tried counseling and 11 months later he moved out. How could this be? My biggest fear had come upon me. I never wanted my children to have to experience divorce. My husband on the other hand had read the book “Children of Divorce” and convinced himself that the children would be just fine. For me, I was about to learn the long term effects my parents divorce had played in my own life.
After 14 months of separation my husband informed me he was “ready to move on.” Two days later while sitting in church I read about a Divorce Recovery group that would be starting in 11 days. Participating in the Divorce Recovery group significantly helped me get through the divorce process.
Now a certified divorce coach, Shelley helps others going through the divorce process through private and group coaching sessions as well as local workshops. Visit her site A Hope Filled Future.
