The Sixth Thorn

As I mentioned in a previous post, God showed me that there were “thorns” in my heart that were symbolic of things that were done or said to me that I had neglected to deal with adequately at a previous time. These things had grown in to symbolic thorns that caused me continual pain and […]

not as strong as i thought i was

Yesterday found me truly connected to God and the spirit realm. As I was praying for my BIL, God gave me insight to things that I wouldn’t otherwise have known or had insight to. I wrote them out and IM’d them to my husband and he shared them with his brother, although the sharing part […]

outing ourselves

We took the dive and met with one of the pastors at our church. My husband and I are done hiding. Period. End of discussion. This is who we are — people in whom God is doing an amazing work, and our spotted pasts and histories of abuse notwithstanding, we are walking it out and […]

bumps in the road

When dealing with sexual addiction, bumps in the road are bound to come along. So is a certain amount of “backsliding,” or as addiction terminology puts it, “falling off the wagon.” Interestingly enough, many sexual addicts use the term “sober” in regards to how long they’ve been away from their addiction, be it porn, acting […]

did you cause his sexual addiction?

I know the title of this post is provocative. There are some who would say that a woman can indeed influence and/or “cause” her husband’s sexual addiction. In most situations, I am not one of those people. The media-at-large would have us think that if we’re not 25 with perky breasts, no hips, and a […]

how do you heal?

Despite the fact that this blog is written in the first-person narrative, I recognize that I’m not the only one dealing with these sorts of issues. Honestly, that’s why I started this site — out of the hope that being transparent with my pain and path to healing would be beneficial to others. And although […]
