New Book in Progress: The Wife’s Heart

My next book, The Wife’s Heart; Healing from Your Husband’s Porn Addiction and Adultery, is in the final pre-production stages. The manuscript has been edited, and the interior is being created. We should have the cover done in 10 days. If everything goes right I’ll have first copies of the book available at the store early February.

At least 70% of our emails come from wives. Many of these emails contain phrases like “I’m hurting… I don’t have anyone to talk to… I feel so alone.” Many also share that they tried to get help at their church or with a counselor and it wasn’t helpful. In some cases the counsel they received even made it worse (“you’re codependent… if you gave your husband more sex he wouldn’t have this problem… boys will be boys and you need to deal with it… just divorce him.”)

The book will address the questions I hear often from wives, and will include these topics:

* Understanding your husband and how his sexual sin has affected him.

* What to do if he refuses to get help, or keeps falling.

* The 8 elements of rebuilding trust.

* Coping with triggers such as fear, anger, and insecurity.

* Embracing your incredible value as a wife and daughter of Christ.

* Forgiveness

* Healing your heart

And much more.

  1. Excited to hear more about this book. I’ve read “Every Heart Restored”, which has helped but am open to more ways to heal. We’ve found this website very helpful to get thru all we have experienced in the last two years. Blessings to your ministry!

  2. Would you be able to let me know when the book, ‘The Wife’s Heart’ is available for purchase? I may want to obtain a few copies, as I may be initiating a Christian support group for wives of porn/sex addicts.

  3. Mike, this is so needed. As a recovering sex addict, I am just beginning to even remotely understand the havoc and betrayal I have wreaked on my wonderful wife for over 15 years. Many churches and recovery programs don’t know how to deal with the broken wife of a sex addict. Too often, they are fed the usual line, “He’s in recovery. What more do you want? You need to get over your anger, bitterness and resentment, forgive him (just as Christ has forgiven you) and move on!” Or on the other hand, many well-meaning partners’ groups often degenerate into “emotional purgation” meetings where a living human soul is likened to a inanimate glass, which, once emptied, is now fit to be washed clean, dried and refilled with something healthy.
