Welcome to Heart in a Drawer, a podcast for adult children of divorce.



No matter what age you were when your parents divorced, I know that the pain continues on and on. Whether you were very young, a teen, or even an adult at the time of their divorce, the underlying hurts are similar and long-lasting. They are probably affecting you in ways you don't even realize.



I'm your host, Sarah Geringer, a wife and mom of three from southeast Missouri. I'm a child of divorce twice over, at ages 4 and 22. Married to another child of divorce for 20 years, I'm also a Christian author, speaker, blogger and artist who writes about finding peace in God's Word at sarahgeringer.com.



For many years, it's been my dream to minister to the unique hurts that adult children of divorce face. In this podcast, I'll affirm your pain with my personal stories. I'll also share guided meditations on scriptures that have helped me heal and find hope. In addition, I'll share parts of Christian books that have helped me overcome my past hurts.



It's an honor to minister to fellow adult children of divorce like you. So much material is produced for people who are divorcing and for young children and teens. Yet there is precious little for those of us suffering into our adult years.



My prayer is that through this podcast, you will find the healing and hope you seek in your relationship with God, your spouse, your children, and yes, even your parents.

Cat Barrena ,

Thank you

Thank you for pouring your heart out to us on your journey to healing so that we may also be healed. Honestly, divorce was a part of my life since before I can remember. I had no idea of all the affects it had in my life and never understood the magnitude and depths divorce played in my life. As an adult, I am thankful to be able to understand and out into words what I felt as a child by listening and learning from you. Thank you for all the book recommendations. Love reading them and learning more. Praying for you and your ministry.

Anger in Marriage

Thank you, Sarah, for the tips you gave regarding anger in marriage. I, too, wish I had those tools during our first year of marriage and on. But we have them now and can use them as we move forward. God bless...
