"Lin Vernon Floyd's workbook Discover Your Voice After Divorce is excellent. Her personal experience has laid a solid foundation to write this helpful book. It's a thoughtfully prepared guide for others going through this same painful journey. Readers will discover the way to help put their lives back together and find peace and happiness.

Divorce: Writing Workbook for Healing and Recovery by Lin Vernon Floyd
In my work with those struggling with addictions, one of the saddest of possible realities is divorce. I am always looking for tools to help clients through that very difficult process. Lin Vernon Floyd’s work “Divorce: Writing Workbook for Healing and Recovery,” fills that need.
She writes from the perspective of experience, a retired educator and writer of things, she combines the healing power of writing (and journaling), the teaching power of her poetry, and the wisdom that only experience can bring to provide a guidebook for navigating divorce.
Written from an LDS perspective, Lin understands the befuddlement that comes from divorce in that culture. (This was never supposed to happen to me!) She explores some essentials for healing; finding a voice, self worth, the value of healthy self talk and the absence of self bullying, and establishment of a loving relationship with self.
Lin focuses on the grieving process, the dangers of codependency, the often encountered enemy of depression and the wonderful healing powers of acceptance and hope. The author realizes that there are many pieces to the recovery puzzle and artfully uses her educational skills to guide the user through these in the workbook.
Floyd rightfully recognizes that ultimately moving forward with life is the goal and provides good discussion of what that needs to look like. In part, just being willing to try again while realistically expecting challenges brings success. Always, she advises, work on self care and when appropriate, put yourself first.
I am personally and professionally grateful for this workbook and highly recommend it to those facing the possibility or dealing with divorce. Roger Stark, author/addiction counselor/recovery coach www.waterfallconcept.org
