The brokenness left by divorce, the physical and emotional pain caused by intimate partner abuse, the sting of rejection and abandonment, and the devastation suicide leaves behind are some examples of ways we can experience this. Join Matt as he shares practically and experientially about their impact and strategies to get better.
