Bent Tree DivorceCare

Tuesdays 6:30-8:30pm Dinner/Discussion/Seminar. Separated or divorced adults attend this group. Bent Tree is a non-denominational Christ-centered church convenient to N.

Dallas, Plano, Frisco and the surrounding community in North Central Texas. You will discover there are people who understand your hurts, emotions and painful experiences! In divorce, it’s common to feel isolated. In DivorceCare, you’ll find that you are not alone, that there are others who understand what you are going through. Don’t try to go through separation or divorce alone. Link up with a DivorceCare support group. This is NOT a SOCIAL MIXER: It’s a place where you’ll find caring people who understand the issues you face. If our group is not meeting at a convenient time or location for you we can locate a similar group near you in almost any U.S. Zip Code and even in some countries outside the USA.

Mission: Bent Tree exists to be used by God as He transforms people into disciples of Jesus Christ, here and around the world. Our heart’s desire is to allow God to use us in His work of transformation. Let us show you a loving Christian response to your situation.

Operating as usual

Lysa TerKeurst

Absolutely not. Forgiveness doesn’t mean tolerating abuse or enabling addictions. Forgiveness doesn’t mean that you are saying what they did was no big deal. Forgiveness doesn’t mean they get a pass to keep hurting you over and over.

Quite the opposite.

Forgiveness is your step toward healing.

Forgiveness is to sweep your heart clean so bitterness, resentment, and blinding pain don’t turn you into someone you weren’t meant to be.

Forgiveness is you driving a stake into the ground of today and declaring, “I deserve to stop suffering because of what others have done to me.” And then forgiveness is you lovingly communicating boundaries that you need to stay sane, healthy, and safe.

Forgiveness says, “I love you enough to no longer tolerate behavior that isn’t in keeping with who God intended for you to be or for me to endure.” Boundaries aren’t to shove that person away. They are to hold me together.

Forgiveness allows me to see I can pursue a redemption story with God even if others don’t cooperate.

Honestly, deciding to live a life of forgiveness is one of the most empowering decisions I’ve ever made.

Andrew Farley

Jesus died so we’d be forgiven, so our sins would be forgotten (remembered no more!), and so we’d never face judgment for them.


In a divorce situation, you have to relearn your world. It’s new. It might not be what you want but you still have to relearn it. - H. Norman Wright


Join us online as we connect with COVID-19 'safe distancing' while finding encouragement and hope for the future.

If parts of you are still broken or needy, another person can feel attracted to the idea of helping to repair or rebuild you. The other person may feel falsely strengthened by the idea that you need him or her to grow and heal.

Max Lucado

Though we are in a valley,
the valley does not last forever.

This Shadow Will Pass

Life consists of valleys, but we have the promise that God will lead us through the valley. Through the valley of loss; through the valley of grief, through the valley of sadness; through the valley of anger; through the valley of disappointment.

But valleys don't last forever. Storms don't last forever. Darkness doesn't last forever. Sadness may come for a time, but joy always comes with the morning.


Sometimes the kids are looking for some fighting words: ‘How do we retaliate when Dad says bad things about you?’ The best thing I can give to my children is, ‘Let’s give it over to God. Let’s pray for peace.’ - Laurel

Paul David Tripp

👩‍👧‍👦 God hasn't turned His back on you.


Going into this pandemic you might have thought you had your emotions under control and then BOOM! Just when the doors to the outside world closed, all of the emotional issues hit. During times like this self-talk is important. What is something positive you can say to keep yourself from falling apart?

Lie: God is Holding Out on You A lot of people think that God’s offer to be close to us is too good to be true. That’s why Dr. Tony Evans wants to expose that lie and explain how hard Satan works to keep it alive in this lesson on learning to recognize and reject the devil’s misinformation tactics.

It's Kind To Be Clear About Expectations - Conflict Resolution - 4word

Trouble resolving conflicts...? Heidi Rasmussen, COO of freshbenies and 4word Board Member, discusses why much of conflict comes down to a lack of expectations being communicated.


Free your child to love the other parent. Its so critical for their future, their well-being, their ultimate health ... and confidence, and joy, and security, their ability to have healthy relationships. It is a sacrifice worth making, It is so critical and so important for their development that you have to find a way to let that relationship grow. Elsa Kok Colopy

The pain of divorce is much deeper and more soul wrenching than most people can imagine, unless they have been through it themselves.


Loneliness is not permanent.


I had almost zero energy. You end up having your energy just zapped because emotionally youre carrying such a heavy load that it depletes you. Every moment that I didnt have to function for my children or my job, I was tucked into bed. The pain was so bad and so heavy, what I would do was shut down. I was like, "I cant believe I woke up with this again. I cant believe Im going to go to sleep with this again. It just doesnt stop." - DivorceCare participant


I think loneliness has been one of the biggest issues to deal with. I enjoyed the routines, the evenings that I spent with the kids. Getting them ready for bed, playing certain games with them before bedtime, and I really miss the family aspect of it. You can distract yourself with books, movies, doing things with people, but I just really miss my family. - Tony


If your spouse breaks the marriage and youve done everything you can to prevent that, thats not your fault, thats not your responsibility. - Dr. Craig Keener

You're not forgiven because you ask God to forgive you each day. You're forgiven because of what Jesus Christ has already done.

How To Pray When You Don’t Feel Like Praying Prayer is such an integral part of any Christian’s life as it not only causes us to continually submit ourselves to God’s sovereignty, but it also is a consistent way for us to boldly approach God about what He is doing in our lives now and what He will do next.
