Lynn's words reflect a compassion and understanding that can only come from one who has experienced their own spouse's betrayal through infidelity. While some become bitter from such devastating circumstances, Lynn has powerfully transformed her own painful journey into a gift of life and hope for all women with similar wounding. I believe betrayed women will find this devotional to be a treasured friend. Additionally, for women who are wrestling with the question of where God is in all of this, I believe this book can be a road map back to him.

As Christian counselors, we have to admit, we were so afraid that this book would be full of quick fixes and easy answers--"Just read your Bible and listen to pastors' tapes three times and you will be fine"--a book that glosses over the utter devastation that comes with betrayal. Instead, we found a book about real pain, deep struggles, and an honest look at despair. Not only does Lynn understand and give voice to the pain that comes with betrayal, but she also gives practical steps to walk out each painful day--slowly,with the future unknown, until a few faint notes of a song of hope begin stirring in your heart.
While we all know that God's Word brings hope and healing, in the depths of the pain of betrayal many people find that it is difficult to read Scripture for comfort. Often, Scripture itself can bring memories of the betrayal or echo pat answers that seem to mock us or deny our hurt. Lynn has placed just the right Scriptures in just the right places, which allow space to grieve, hurt, and then allow God's presence through his Word to seep in to cleanse and heal our wounds.
She gets it, she has walked through it, and she is reaching out with hope to those in the midst of devastation. We can't wait to get copies of this book to give to our clients who have experienced betrayal.

Lynn Cherry shares her journey of betrayal, progress, and hope in her powerful work, Keep Walking: 40 Days to Hope and Freedom after Betrayal.With a transparency and candidness that stay true without veering into vengefulness, Lynn openly reveals the wrestling of her heart and the lessons learned along the way as she moved from the initial shock of discovering her marriage was not what she thought to the transformation and healing that were awaiting her on the other side of a chasm of chaos. Lynn will encourage you, give you tools for the journey, speak faith into the dark places, and speak from a place not of theory but tangibility when it comes to relationship revolution. I'm so thankful that Lynn has been willing to tell her story.
