Ok, repeat after me: "Thanks, Mom!" or "Thanks, Dad!"
Now really, was that so hard?
Ok. I totally saw you roll your eyes. And yes, this is a two-way mirror.
I know it’s not cool to appreciate your parents, but it is the right thing to do!
After all, when else in your lifetime will you have two people falling all over themselves to be a part of your life? (Hint—never).

CHAT IT OUT
1. Do you see God's beauty in nature? What do you think God's most beautiful creation is?
2. Have you ever had a moment where you found a closeness to God while in nature? Tell me about it.
3. Can we go outside together on a nice day and pray?
Dealing with your parent’s divorce may be one of the hardest things you’ll face as a young lady. The thought of the two most important people in your life somehow moving away from each other can be hard to understand.
You may feel sad, confused, angry—or all three depending on the day. It’s okay to feel one or all of these things because you are not just a bystander; it’s your life too.
While there is nothing you can do to change the situation, you need to understand two things:
You didn’t create the problem (it’s not your fault in any way)
You can’t solve the problem
Parents who divorce typically go through years of trying to work out their problems before they decide to split. It’s not only painful to you, but also to them—regardless of how they feel about each other.
