Have you always thought your life story would make a great book? You could win the chance to get your “divorce story” in print and help others at the same time!

Have you been divorced and remember the shock, the hurt, and the anger? Do you remember how devastating it was to think that life would never look or feel the same again? Did you use divorce as a jumping off time in your life to grow yourself to become stronger, happier, and in a better place than ever before? I know I did.

Hi, I’m Debbie Klugger Relationship and Divorce Coach. Because I work with folks in the throes of divorce and get to witness the pain and devastation along with their feelings of helplessness and hopelessness while struggling through divorce, I have taken on the project of writing a book for people experiencing divorce which validates this painful time and offers new insight full of hope and encouragement. I will be collecting stories from people who have endured and healed through the arduous journey of divorce (names of contributors may remain anonymous by request) .With these stories I will be compiling a book that helps get people back on track with their lives encouraging them to move forward with hope, healing, and excitement about all of the possibilities of life after divorce. Upon completion of this book 10% of all net proceeds will be donated in the contributors names to The Women’s Rape and Crisis Center.

If you’ve walked the painful terrain of divorce, have a story of struggle to victory and feel compelled share in order to encourage others, enter the contest today.   If you are selected you will get the chance to turn your experience into helping others and the exciting possibility of any publicity that may come as a result of sharing your story. To be considered for this opportunity, please write a brief outline explaining the following:

 How did you meet your ex-spouse? What was your relationship like?

When did you know something wasn’t “quite right” about the relationship?

Describe your breaking up how it impacted you and your children, if you have any. What was the worst thing that happened during the process? What were your feelings as you went through the divorce?

What was the turning point for you to go from hurt, anger and/or despair to happiness?

What were three fabulous lessons that you learned during the divorce process?

What makes your story unique?

How did you recreate yourself to move forward into the best you ever?
