Betrayed

Your marriage vows have been broken, and you’re not sure who you can trust. Your spouse cheated on you and you just aren’t able to “get over it.” You’re not sure if you ever will or if you even want to forgive them. It feels like the world is crashing in around you and you aren’t even sure of who you are anymore.

Our 30-Day Devotional Guide will help you pick up the pieces of your shattered life, create safety and stability for yourself, heal from the traumatic impact of cheating, and walk with you through the decision of whether to recover your marriage or not. The guide uses a Bible-based value system to help you:

  • Understand the nature and extent of the betrayal
  • Understand the nature and extent of the betrayal
  • Process the grief, confusion, and feelings of broken trust
  • Figure out how to survive the first 90 days and beyond
  • Set boundaries and get the honest details you need
  • Establish emotional safety and begin to heal
