This course takes the student on a step-by-step journey to move towards healing post-divorce. It begins with examining where you went wrong then proceeds to getting to know yourself and beginning to develop the kind of person that you would like to be going forward now that you've been given this new start. It then proceeds to how to change your mindset about why you got a divorce and how the real answer to that question can change your feelings, your mindset, and your actions towards your ex. Next it explores the importance of giving yourself time to heal and to develop yourself. Finally it finishes with how to become a better parent, how and when to date, and how to ensure that you are putting your children first when doing so.
Each course focuses not just on what you should be doing for each step and each lesson but why as well. What the benefits are and why not following the steps can ensure that you leave your marriage but continue to stay in limbo instead of moving towards God's plan for your life are also explored.
The courses challenge the student to do the work, to think, and to seek God—not to just look for a quick fix or a two-step plan to healing but to appreciate the journey and the experience gained as you travel towards healing.
The course uses references from Amanda Nicole's books From Divorce to Destiny and Healing After Divorce, and throughout the course, students are encouraged to refer to those two books for further study.
Purpose of the Course: To teach the student how to experience emotional healing and restoration after a divorce.
Each lesson is another step that the student must go through and complete in order to improve the quality of their life and to use this divorce as a new start—the first step to moving towards fulfilling their destiny.
Students are taught the benefits and advantages to backtracking to understand where they went wrong in their choice of spouse that led to eventual divorce. They are encouraged to change their mindset about their spouse to understand the real reason for their divorce and to move on without feelings of resentment, anger, and unforgiveness.
Students are taught how to set goals for their new lives based on why God created them and what gifts and talents they possess. This lesson also covers building confidence, and it is designed to help students discover who they really are and where you are going.
Students are taught how to actively seek healing rather than passively wishing for it. They are given suggestions as to what actions to take to aid them on their journey.
Students are taught the importance of taking time to heal. They are reassured that time is necessary and that there are plenty of things that God has for them to do while they wait rather than being idle. Students are also introduced to the benefits of allowing yourself this time
Students explore what characteristics they can display and what actions they can take to lessen the impact of the divorce on their children.
Students explore how to date God's way, how to set standards for those that they choose to date, and how to make sure their children come first.
Students are made aware of the lessons that they should have learned and what they can expect now that they have completed the course.
Amanda Nicole is a Christian author of four books. She spent 15 years teaching in her church—everything from Introduction to Christianity Bible study courses that she self-authored to teaching a young adult ministry how to better get to know God. Amanda has a heart for God's people and for seeing them live free, healed, and spiritually successful lives. Her books are in all different genres, and when asked why she doesn't just stick with one genre, she answers:
“I am a Christian single mother and serial entrepreneur going through a separation/divorce. I work as a freelance business consultant; I also work full time as a business analyst; and I am an indie author. My true passion is teaching, so that is what my writing and my books are really intended to do. They are created to teach others the lessons that I've learned the hard way throughout my life. That's why my books are seemingly all over the place in terms of subject matter and genre. I wear a lot of hats and have done a lot of things in my life, so in an effort simply to teach on what I myself have experienced, I tend to teach on a lot of different subjects.
But the truth is that whether I'm writing a book on divorce or a book for young adults, I consider them all to be the same genre. To me, they are all teaching books, and they are what some would consider to be self-help books. I realize that the world may classify them differently, and that is fine. Either way, the goal is to help others succeed, and that is my prayer with every word that I write."
Amanda claims no credentials other than her passion for writing and research, her commitment to seek God and to transcribe only what He has spoken to her (thus the name of her website, truthtranscribed), and her personal experiences with the subject matter on which she teaches.
It is her desire that those who read this book will receive clarity and be directed towards truth via the Spirit of Truth.
