New support group started
A new program called DivorceCare is now offered in Grangeville. DivorceCare is a 13-week video-based support group for people who are divorced, separated, or going through a divorce, and is helpful regardless of how long ago the divorce occured. It is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences, led by people who understand what you are going through. Don’t go through separation or divorce and recovery alone. Previous participants have commented,
"It brought me stability, healing, and hope for the future."
"Best thing I've ever done for myself."
"DivorceCare has changed me from bitter and angry to forgiving."
"Every chapter, every word, every page was used to help restore my life."
"It helped me release my anger and depression and take responsibility for my actions."
DivorceCare meets on Sunday afternoons from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church. The registration fee is $20, including the workbook. Child care and scholarships are available. For more information, contact DivorceCare leader Jenneane Musegades at (208) 451-6236 or email@example.com.
