Ministry of Hope –

SUPPORT FOR EX-SPOUSES

Ways Others Can Offer Support:

  1. Listen – It may not seem like much, but it makes a world of difference.
  2. Encourage – Laugh and cry with us while offering words of wisdom.
  3. Hug us – It can be awfully lonely at times.
  4. Don’t appraise our situation too quickly – things are often more complicated than they appear.
  5. Keep Confidences – The situation can be complex and drawn out over a number of years.
  6. Be patient – We may repeat the same unanswered questions over and over.
  7. Prayer, emotional, and financial support – Separation and divorce can be difficult.
  8. Engage with tangible assistance:
    – Assist with help around the home & yard
    – A pot luck supper in or an evening out
    – A short trip away for a weekend may be the perfect break to reassess the situation
    – Watch the kids and maybe do something creative with them
