Recover is a ten-week study to help women recover from sexual betrayal. It starts with the relational component of stories from women who have journeyed with a spouse addicted to pornography or sex outside of the marriage (the video sessions). It’s an interactive experience that provokes deep thought and reflection, allowing women to write their own story and be in control of their outcome (the guidebook). This program altogether (the book, guidebook and ten video session curriculum) leads them to a place of healing and recovery they didn’t know was possible. It will change how they view themselves in the midst of uncertainty and help them to rediscover themselves and all they were meant to be.
The vast majority of the faith community, including leaders and laity, believe pornography is a bigger problem in the Church than it was two decades ago. But many do not know what to do about it. Many wives and significant others are often standing alone because no one knows how to deal with this problem, or worse they are given advice that leads to further trauma.
A commonality amongst Christian women dedicated to men who are addicted has been further trauma through the counsel of those who are ill-equipped. In the making of this program, we learned from women some of the astonishing things they were told in both pastoral and Christian counseling:
All of these statements are blame statements and tell a woman that she should be able to control her husband’s choices. This type of counsel leads to further trauma and only causes more pain, confusion, and despair.
AND IT IS CLEAR THAT APPROACHES LIKE THIS AREN’T WORKING. IT’S TIME FOR A NEW APPROACH – ONE THAT’S ROOTED IN LOVE, GRACE, AND HELPS A WOMAN REDISCOVER ALL SHE WAS MEANT TO BE. IT’S TIME TO WALK WITH HER ON THE ROAD TO RECOVER.
Healing for wives is possible regardless of where their spouse is on their journey.
We’ll see you on the road to recovery.
“I’ve just received the Recover workshop and watched Craig’s intro video. I’m in tears. I believe these materials will touch spouses' lives in profound and life-changing ways. Thank you for all the time and energy you’ve invested in this project. I’m eager to promote it and beyond thrilled to be part of sharing these tools to help women find companionship, hope, and healing on their individual journeys.”
I cried. I laughed. I remembered. I mourned. I rejoiced. I connected. I related. I got more healing!
By the end of this series, I felt I had gained some powerful friendships. Normally it would take years of building a relationship to reach this kind of closeness where someone is willing to reveal so much pain and triumph. These women have given us a rich gift, and I am better for it.
I believe Recover will benefit any woman: married, engaged, dating, single – mothers, sisters, friends. There is such wisdom to be gained. Although the circumstances are different for each woman, they all shared early red flags that should be recognized and that we would do well to pay attention to. What heartache could be spared so many of us if this were a part of pre-marital counseling (or even earlier in a relationship – pre-dating maybe!).
These videos were so helpful and healing for me!! I could hear all my thoughts in these precious brave women who are sharing from such a painful place. I could hear the pearls that they have found in the pain. Their vulnerability and tears brought hope to me! It has been a long hard lonely painful journey. God has been ever so faithful to hold me thru it.
This was a priceless answer to heart-wrenching prayers!
"This series is thoughtful, well laid out and tackles many of the challenges women face being married to a sex addict. Gone are the days when the spouse is misunderstood. This workshop challenges women to discover who they are in the midst of uncertainty while leaving them filled with hope and new possibilities."
"Recover helped me get past the pain of my husband’s porn addiction and showed me a better way to find personal healing. I always thought I was alone in this … that there was something wrong with me. But now I know the truth, and this workshop has shown me a clear path to my own personal recovery."
"The Recover videos are beautiful, poignant, real, touching, heartbreaking ... and will be such a tremendous help and gift and comfort to any women walking that painful path. I have cried during each video thus far, and that is a good thing because it stirred up memories and tremendous compassion for ladies still in the midst. ... it's so gentle yet so raw and so real."
