Hello. I’m Debra.
I’ve lived the nightmare, and perhaps you have, too. We’ve all had our D-Day. Discovery Day. The day we discovered our husband’s double life.
Mind-blowing, earth-shattering, unthinkable- that’s how I’d describe mine.
It’s bad enough, learning of a husband’s infidelity, but a husband who leaves you for another man? That’s a double dagger through your heart and an additional heaping of shame to address.
Maybe we’ve kept quiet- too ashamed to tell anyone? It’s ok to break the silence. You are not to blame. You are not alone. We’re on a path of healing, and it takes time, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. Promise.
Maybe life isn’t happening in the way you hoped? It wasn’t for me, either. My 22-year marriage ended in divorce- the dream of “living happily ever after” in a restored marriage was not the outcome. Perhaps this resonates with you, or perhaps you’re in a marriage where your spouse is not pursuing healing from sexual addiction.
No matter where you’re at- married, separated, divorced- I hope we will connect. You’ve experienced a trauma, but we have a loving God who understands what we’re going through. Please know He’s right here with us, loving us through it.
As your story unfolds, would you allow me to come alongside to give encouragement and cheer you on? I’ll share what’s worked for me. Together, we’ll get through this. We no longer need to live in shame and secrecy. We can boldly claim this verse:
“We are clothed in strength and dignity and can laugh at the days to come.” Proverbs 31:25
I’ve learned we can laugh in the future when we know who holds our future! Ready to move forward? Let’s go.
