Divorce is the result of everything that happened leading up to it and it sets the stage for everything that happens after. Due to the stigma surrounding divorce, the opportunities that it creates are often buried beneath guilt, shame, hurt, and judgment. In this truth-telling talk, Christian Family shows that divorce isn’t necessarily a hero, but it isn’t a villain either. Christian Family is a speaker, facilitator, attorney and entrepreneur. As a twice-divorced, adult child of divorce, divorce lawyer for nearly 20 years, Christian knows a l lot about the topic. She is passionate about removing the stigma from divorce that causes good people to stay in bad marriages.
Christian is the owner of Christian Family Law, a graduate of Next Level Emotional Intelligence Trainings, and the mother of three little ones. Her parents, who divorced when she was seven, both live with her and the children. She truly lives the proposition that divorce doesn’t destroy families, it restructures them.
