Surviving the Holidays

Are you wondering how you will survive the weeks surrounding Thanksgiving and Christmas? Are you dreading the holidays, knowing that everything has changed and that happy memories from past years can’t be recreated?

We have several one-day seminars available to help you successfully navigate the holiday season. Whatever the reason, please know that you are welcome to contact us anytime for help and care at care@walnuthillcc.org.


Are You Recently Divorced or Separated?

Our "DivorceCare: Surviving the Holidays" one-day seminar is especially for people who are separated and divorced. You’ll learn:

  • How to deal with the many emotions you’ll face during the holidays
  • Helpful tips for surviving social events
  • Ways to give your kids a good holiday experience
  • How to discover hope for your future

A Surviving the Holidays event lasts for about two hours. You’ll be welcomed by warm, caring people who understand what you are going through and who want to help. During the seminar, you will:

  1. Watch a 40-minute video, filled with practical holiday survival tips and the real-life stories of people who have navigated the season after separation and divorce.
  2. Hear other seminar attendees explain how they are dealing with the holidays.
  3. Have the opportunity to share how separation or divorce is affecting you. (No pressure—this is optional. We want you to feel comfortable.)
  4. Receive a personal copy of the DivorceCare Holiday Survival Guide.

There are two dates to choose from. Please register so we can plan accordingly.
