Episode 33 – Busting Myths About Singleness After Divorce

by | Aug 28, 2019 | Advocacy, Expert Interviews, Flying Free Podcast, Learning, Rebuilding, Survivor Identity | 3 comments

Meet Gretchen Baskerville, author of the upcoming book Life Saving Divorce. After going through a divorce as a young adult, Gretchen was single for twenty years before getting remarried. During that time she was a Christian divorce recovery leader and single mothers support group leader in churches. She has worked with hundreds of people facing life-saving divorces (for serial infidelity, physical abuse, chronic emotional abuse, sexual immorality, and other serious reasons). She successfully raised her two young children to adulthood as a single mother. Today she is happily remarried and writes about divorce recovery.

In today’s interview, Gretchen shares some UBER encouraging tips for women who are facing singleness after divorce. This is wisdom earned over the course of two decades, and I know you’ll glean a treasure trove of insights for your own life. Even if you are still married, you’ll discover how to lean into getting to know who you are and nurturing your friendships, gifts, and vision.

You can connect with Gretchen on Twitter.

    This helped me so much. Do I have to have an apple device to rate on Apple?

    • Natalie Hoffman

      Nope! You just need to have the apple podcasts app on whatever device you’re using. 🙂 Thank you!

  2. Julie

    Thank you SO much for this podcast. It was exactly what I needed at this point. I am 55, 9 months divorced after 31 years of marriage. I will very likely remain single and I need to embrace this as a positive thing. Thank you for your ministry
