The Book

HopeAfterBetrayal“There’s good news — hope is real. Regardless of what your husband has done, or is doing, there’s always hope for those who seek help. I’ve seen people do the messy work that results in the beauty of healing. I understand the joy of catching a glimmer of light where darkness once reigned. I’ve been to depths of pain unimaginable, only to find that God was deeper still. His peace and healing are within your grasp, too. You can be whole again. You can experience hope after betrayal. I can say emphatically, this is work worth doing.”

Meg’s husband, Dave, has added his voice and wisdom for the final chapter of the book in a Q & A format, here is one of the questions:

How do you feel about Meg writing this book?

At first I was hesitant and fearful. The prospect of having thousands of people knowing my story was overwhelming. I prayed and sought God’s direction. I discussed it with a few very close friends and ultimately decided I had to trust God and surrender to His will. I have to confess that my main concern was selfish: “What about my reputation?” Once I turned that over to God, the decision was easy. Let God do His work, taking what was meant for evil and using it for good.

It amazes me that, the first time I shared a bit of my story, a number of men said that they’ve struggled with pornography. I’m not alone nor is my situation unique—sexual addiction is more prevalent than you might think. The only way to start dealing with it is by having it exposed and discussed. I can’t change what has happened, and I’ll always regret the choices I’ve made. But I can also continue to move forward, focus on, and share the amazing grace that God bestows upon us all.
