There’s no comment form on your Bookstore page so I will comment here. Strange to see “How it Feels When A Parent Dies” by Jill Krementz on your site, but not her companion book, “How it Feels When Parents Divorce.” Both are excellent books, if a bit dated since they were written in the 1980s. Is this intentional, or just a mistake?

Thanks for pointing that out. I think we must have accidentally selected the wrong book for the store. I hope that eventually this store will be much more targeted to the books that we feel are most helpful, but for now we have included a variety of books. Thanks again!

Hey Wayne, did you go to the Expo up in Kentucky? I was there last year and wish so much I could’ve been there this year.

Did you get all those links about children of divorce I emailed from my There was some new research. Sure with the researchers would talk to those of us that work with these kids on a regular basis. My DC4K (Divorcecare for Kids) kids up in the Raleigh area are really missing me right now. Would you like for me to post a couple of messages on here about when I told them I was leaving.

I’m ready to blog on this site when you are ready for all that to get started. Or not! Just whatever I can do.

And how to we get a avatar /gravatar on here?

Wayne, I work at an urban Christian school. Many of our students are open to the Lord’s leading, but are hurting in their homes. I look forward to the insight DM4Kids will bring!

Thanks for this thought, most of our children are lost and they need help, God bless you and may He add knowledge to you as you do this.


Thank you for your thoughts and your prayers. They mean a lot as I launch this new ministry.

I really thank God for you and for this site because i believe it will transformed and that the children of God will find hope peace and rest for their souls which i believe is the will of God.

May God bless you and the work of your hands.



Congrats, Wayne, on your ministry launch. I am excited to “connect the dots” with you in our growing number of ministries for the single parents and their kids. Let’s keep in touch. May God bless your ministry!


Thanks! I am excited to get to know you and your ministry better. One of the things I would like to do with this site is expose people in children’s ministry to other ministries related to single parenting and children of divorce. I am going to be presumptuous and add you to the list of people to feature. 🙂 For you, that means I’ll be in touch soon to bother you. 🙂


Careful, you may be sorry you asked. 🙂 If you can just check in frequently and let me know where I am way off base, check my facts and generally weigh in with your expert opinion, I think those will be the most helpful things. Thanks for the kind comments. I’m still debating the purple background (my kids both like it, but I’m not sure), and I’m also tying to figure out if I like the sidebar on the left. I may still move it to the right side. I’ve been amazed by the response to the site thus far especially considering how I just threw it out there as something of a “placeholder” until the official launch. Given the response, I may need to move the launch date up. I just want to make sure that I don’t sacrifice quality for speed.

I hope that this site, and ministry, will be a source of information and ideas for people in children’s ministry – and churches in general. Even more, though, I hope that it becomes a place where people can engage in conversation and learn from one another about this very important issue!
