Fulton Books author Timothy W. Scott, who's spent most of his adult life working with teens as a teacher, athletics director, basketball coach, house parent, and youth pastor, and currently serves on the Missouri Christian School Athletics Association committee, has completed his most recent book "Though I Walk Through the Valley: Stories of Tears, Trauma, and Triumph during the Dark Days of Divorce": a thought-provoking collection of stories acquired from those who have gone through divorce that provide insight into navigating this difficult time in one's life.
"A friend once said to me, 'You don't get a divorce; you go through a divorce.' This statement is absolutely correct. Thinking someone can walk away from a marriage without consequence is one of the biggest lies of the devil. The trail of destruction left in the wake of a separation and eventual divorce is devastating. Like shock waves during an earthquake, this devastation expands to untold hundreds—if not thousands—of friends, family, and most of all, children of divorce. Divorce can be the most life-shattering event a child or a spouse will ever experience," writes Scott.
"I know the trauma, feelings, and emotions. I've walked through the valley of divorce. However, I also know the peace and joy of Jesus coming alongside and walking with me. Today, 40 percent of all marriages end in divorce. Therefore, a lot of people are walking this same lonely path. For someone who has never experienced it, understanding will be hard; but for someone standing at the beginning of the valley, the road ahead looks almost unbearable. Questions like 'How do I face tomorrow?' 'Does anyone understand what I am going through?' and 'Will this ever end?' plague the mind of a spouse whose life they once knew now lays in a pile of broken hopes and dreams in front of them."
Scott continues, "I decided it was time to write a book. However, this book would not just tell my journey; it would also tell the stories of several people who can now look back on the worst parts of their journey and give others perspective and hope."
Published by Fulton Books, Timothy W. Scott's book is a powerful guide to navigating the difficult feelings that one experiences while going through a divorce, and how to overcome such emotions to reach the other side. Despite the heavy sadness that weighs down upon those who find their marriage at an end, the stories of Scott and others show that life will continue, and with a renewed strength in God, sometimes it can lead to brand new and better opportunities ahead.
Readers who wish to experience this enlightening work can purchase "Though I Walk Through the Valley: Stories of Tears, Trauma, and Triumph during the Dark Days of Divorce" at select bookstores, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes & Noble.
