E66: Religion & Divorce with Amy Pettyjohn


For many, marriage is a sacred union bound by a higher force. What happens when that union no longer serves you? How will your community and leaders view you?

Amy Pettyjohn is the author of Amy’s Journal and a content creator on social media at @thedivorcedchristian, For several years she was a stay-at-home mom and a leader in her church. After fourteen years of living in an unhealthy marriage, she made the decision to go against everything she was raised to believe in, in her Christian faith, and got divorced. Now she’s on a mission to help others (especially women) who feel alone, stuck, and are caught up in legalistic religious views. To help them see that not only can they be divorced- but their faith can grow and they can still find a way to serve in ministry. It’s time to end the stigmatism of divorce in churches and take off the Scarlett D.
