Welcome back to the Homeschooling Families Podcast. Today, Kent Darcie is back with us. Leslie Nunnery talked to him earlier this fall about the impact of divorce on children, no matter their age when it happens. His insights were incredibly helpful, and his book, "Choose a Better Path," has been a tremendous resource that we have recommended to many. Today, we're delving into a crucial conversation about navigating the holidays when dealing with grief and brokenness, exploring how one can still find joy and healing during this season.

Kent is not only the founder of Adults with Divorced Parents Ministries but also a Licensed Professional Counselor based in Southeast Michigan. He brings a wealth of expertise and insight to our discussion. Kent is the author of the empowering book, 'Choose a Better Path: Overcoming the Impact of Your Parents’ Divorce.' If that's not impressive enough, Kent and his wife Kathy have just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. They have three adult kids, providing him with a unique perspective on the challenges and triumphs of navigating family dynamics over the long haul.
