Growing Up in a Broken Home by Terry SublettThis book is all about the trials and tribulations one man goes through and gets to a point where I question how much more one person can go through. There is a saying, God does not give us more than we can handle. This gets pushed to the limit on how much is enough. It is only by the grace of God that I got through it. This book only contains half of my life, and I went through more in half my life than most people do in all of their life. I learned as time went on that it is faith that got me through, and you will learn that faith will get you through. Even when you think you cant go through any more, God will you get you through anything. You will read what God got me through.
I Grew Up In A Broken Home, But It Shaped Me And Im Blessed For It
O n a sunny November day nearly four years ago, as I flipped through a Pottery Barn catalog on our deck, my husband of 14 years revealed that he had been having an affair for the previous 10 months. His revelation was a punch in my gut, and as my mind simultaneously raced for comprehension and was struck numb, he dropped his next bombshell: his mistress was six months pregnant. In that moment, I was faced with my worst fear. Like many children of divorce, I grew up with one burning desire: to have a good marriage and a happy home. My parents divorced when I was three, and the custody battle that ensued traumatized my sisters and me. My mother was awarded custody and promptly moved us from Florida to New Hampshire, meaning my relationship with my father was regulated to Sunday night phone calls, summer vacations and every other Christmas. Life with my mother was chaotic, unstable and often depressing.
When I was six, my parents got a divorce. At the time, six-year- old me, found this earth shattering. Even now, thinking of the memory of my mum closing the door as she left home for good does make me want to cry, and sometimes it will produce tears. To a child this has a huge detrimental effect on their lives. I did my homework and all the work in school and then even performed above what was expected of me.

However, this may be due to my parents living in the same house after the divorce, the age I was when my parents got divorced, and also the relationship I had with both of my parents, as well as the relationship they had with each other. Parents have an impact on their children, married or not.
