As a Second Saturday Leader, I work with women who are the main decision makers for their families.

Andrew Hatherley

I am a Second Saturday Leader because I think it is very important to educate everybody, women particularly, about divorce.

Laura Boedges

I’m a Second Saturday leader because I live to serve others. It’s crystal clear to me that divorce just doesn’t have to be as destructive as it can be when it’s handled the traditional way, in the courts. There are so many other options! And, the workshop gives women the information they need to get …
