Theology should breathe life and unity among God's people, but today's culture creates a barrier of ignorance and misunderstanding in the study of God. This barrier threatens to split believers and keep seekers from finding God. Whether in a community, in a coffeehouse, or by e-mail, discussion and application of theology is essential. Joining a conversation is easy.

InterVarsity Press, September 2008
Divorce affects our relationships to other people, our fears and longings, our faith and spirituality. We may have difficulties with anger, guilt, commitment or forgiveness. But our identity need not be marked only by our parents' divorce. God can enter into our woundedness and bring transformation and hope.

She tells her own story of abandonment and estrangement, and wrestles through questions of trust, self-worth and identity. She has found that God can repair and reparent us in ways that heal and restore our relationships with ourselves, our parents and God.
