“All I thought I knew about my husband was a lie.”
The deceit of sexual addiction is shrouding marriages in darkness and hopelessness. Countless women are discovering the shocking history of their husband’s sexual compulsions, and are left angry, depressed, numb, and asking themselves, “Why is this happening?” The dream of the perfect marriage and family has been shattered.
Meg Wilson watched her world fall apart when her husband confessed years of sexual addiction. She has an intimate knowledge of all you may have felt—and she’s lived to tell about it.
“I have been to the depths of pain unimaginable, but God was deeper still. Peace and healing are within your grasp. You can be whole again. Because regardless of what your husband has done, or is doing, there is always hope for those who seek help.”
With honesty and hopefulness, Meg uses her own story, along with other examples and Scripture, to help women cope and find their way out of the darkness of their husband’s sexual compulsion. She wants you to know that God’s first concern is for your relationship with Him—not your circumstances.
Though it may seem out of reach, there is hope after betrayal!
Meg Wilson is a regular speaker to women’s groups, Bible studies, and conferences. Five years ago she founded the Healing Hearts Ministry to offer help and hope to women whose husbands are caught in the web of sexual addiction.
About the Author
More About the Author
Since becoming a believer as a teen, God has moved Meg towards women's issues. From small group facilitator, speaker, to support group leader, she has experienced the hand of God in powerful ways. Her passion is seeing women fully partake of God's life-changing truth.
This passion was born of bitter betrayal and painful life experiences. Hope is what she found in the ashes, and hope is what she offers to other women. Meg now encourages other ladies to take a firm hold of the same healing hand she did. Her topics vary, but the theme is the same--Hope.

Two important features to note at the end of each chapter are Path Lights and Journaling. Path Lights has between three to six scripture references that will be an encouragement to women who are walking through each stage of their own journey. The Journaling portion contained in each chapter is an important feature of this book. Meg encourages women to keep a personal journal as they walk through each milestone of their journey towards hope and healing. Journaling is not something that comes easily for everyone.Read more ›
It's as if God is speaking through Meg and talking directly to the reader. She gives examples of how different women react and deal with this problem and how God guided her on the path to healing from the deep hurt she, herself, suffered and how to avoid detours that make the situation much worse. Meg offers journaling exercises that empower women to take control of their lives and uncover issues that need to be dealt with and then how to go about dealing with them. She also cites Bible verses that apply directly to women dealing with such a desperate situation and offer hope and guidance and strengthen one's faith. There are so many women who need to read Meg Wilson's book so they can be free of turmoil and despair. It offers rays of hope for women who don't know where to turn.
I would highly recommend this book to a Christian woman that is frustrated, shocked, and broken hearted over their husband's behaviors that they probably uncovered themselves. While it doesn't take away all the pain or betrayal, it does give a set of great tools for a cognitive person that is confused about what to do...and the ability to decide for themselves about what they need and what they can tolerate. Regardless of the decision, there is support either way-to stay or to go, and no pressure to do either. This would be the first thing that I handed a woman that confessed their broken heart to me to survive the first week.
