Surviving the Holidays

Help and hope
as you navigate the season

Post-breakup holidays look different

After separation or divorce, your Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays won’t look the same as they used to. Traditions change. Some family members won’t be there. Social gatherings can feel stressful. But DivorceCare Surviving the Holidays can help!

What is DivorceCare Surviving the Holidays?

It’s a 2-hour seminar that’s offered anytime from October through December. This short event includes a video, sharing time, and a “Survival Guide” filled with tips and encouragement for managing the holidays after separation and divorce.
