June is known as the month of blissful weddings, happy endings. But, it can also be an extremely difficult time for people struggling to heal and move on after a broken relationship. Paula Drew Fleming and Alexis Thal Yancey are the authors of Divorce Wilderness Peace… A 40 Day Healing Journey, a book and workbook designed to help readers move forward after a breakup or divorce. Alexis and Paula are accomplished, award-winning broadcast journalists and they are both divorced. Paula has her Masters in Psychology and Sociology. She also holds a certificate of Family Mediation and Conflict Resolution. Alexis is a licensed spiritual coach and prayer practitioner.
The two are on a mission to help women and men jump start navigating the wilderness of divorce or a failed union to find peace in their lives again. The authors will offer a book signing and a free workshop on recovering from divorce or failed relationships at Chico’s Pearland Town Center, Saturday June 24, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., 11200 Broadway, Suite 720, Pearland, TX 77584, 713-240-1368.
Alexis and Paula will read excerpts and sign copies of their book and workbook which take readers on a 40 day healing journey dealing with the grief and roller coaster of emotions involved in a break up or divorce. The authors share their intimate personal stories about their divorces and recovery through four 10-day chapters. Each day presents scriptures to ponder and journaling exercises for expressing thoughts and feelings and what next steps to take.
The workshop will offer Chico’s customers several exercises to tap into their feelings about their relationships and see where their opportunities are on their journey of rebirth. A key part of renewal is getting a new perspective on life, including reassessing how you appear to others. Chico’s wardrobe specialists will be on hand to work with workshop participants to help them create their new looks. Refreshments will be served.
