Moving from Devastating Divorce to New Divine Destiny

When I first got divorced from my college sweetheart back in 2008 after 14 years of marriage and 19 years of friendship, I thought I’d never ever marry anyone BUT him again.  I mean, I was believing God for restoration and knew He had definitely presented the opportunities, but for more reasons than one, that just [...]
