What People are Saying About Laura

  • Laura is a wise woman with dynamic words to share to the heart of your group.
    Linda Evans Shepherd
    Author, Speaker
  • In the fourteen years that my wife Beverly and I have known Laura Petherbridge we have witnessed her compassion for those in the midst of separation or divorce. When ‘I Do’ Becomes ‘I Don’t’ offers sound wisdom for the complex financial issues associated with divorce, as well as helpful insights on a variety of other topics. I highly recommend this resource for pastors, leaders, and individuals.

  • Laura provides time-tested, biblical principles for life’s challenges. Her dramatic examples, illustrated from her own life, took me from laughter to tears. She encourages the spirit and gives a renewed hope.

  • I’m glad Laura Petherbridge wrote this book. She has carefully cataloged many of the big questions related to separation and divorce and organized them into an easy-to-read and very usable guide to surviving and healing. Follow Laura’s advice. She’s pointing you to the kind of healing and recovery that many people never find after divorce.

  • Laura Petherbridge is like a rocket. She warms up softly and gradually with her audience and then is a missile of fervency and passion. With humor, authenticity, compassion, and candor from her own personal experience, Laura speaks (as she has written) with tremendous insight and credibility. She is uniquely adept at offering comfort and encouragement to the wounded, as well challenging the unhealthy attitudes and behavior of those stuck in dysfunction.
