The Healing Choice by Brenda Stoeker and Susan Allen + Giveaway

About the Book: n the wake of betrayed intimacy, you may feel nauseated, angry, humiliated, desperate. Why am I not enough for him? Can our marriage be saved—and do I even want to try? Will this unbearable ache ever go away?

Amid the devastation that follows a spouse's sexual disloyalty, you need to know that you are not alone. God walks alongside you, offering comfort and a promise to transform the pain of the present into hope for the future. In addition, there is a community of women who know firsthand the agony caused by a husband's sexual compromises and who offer the compassion, strength, and biblical wisdom you need to make healthy decisions for yourself and your family.

The Healing Choice reveals the hope-filled stories of two such women, authors Brenda Stoeker and Susan Allen, who draw on their own experiences and those of many others to offer step-by-step advice for rediscovering intimacy with God and finding the support you need to move toward genuine spiritual and emotional restoration.

Their down-to-earth insights light the path toward help and healing for every woman who longs to move beyond the pain of broken trust and experience God's promise of hope.

About the Authors: Brenda Stoeker is a registered nurse, mother of four, and seasoned marriage teacher with life experience in rebuilding a broken marriage. Together she and her husband, Fred, have counseled hundreds of couples struggling with issues related to sexual brokenness.

Susan Allen is a counselor who specializes in helping women create and maintain effective healing groups in churches and communities across the country. With husband Clay, she is the cofounder of Avenue, a ministry centered on healing and restoration from sexual brokenness.

I would like to read this book as I have been in an ongoing battle with my husbands staring at other women. When I asked him to stop he just more or less rubbed it in my face, said he didn't care if I looked at other men, and other things that have hurt me deeply. In the meantime, it seems as if satan has gotten his foot in deep, my dad died, I was diagnosed with a braintumor exactly 3 weeks after that, and then fought MRSA for 2 years after that. We have done nothing but fight and I still do not trust him. I am having a very rough time with this. This is just the tip of the iceburg. We desparately need councelling. I am now reading 'How to Act Right When Your Spouse Acts Wrong' but still need help with healing with all the hurtful remarks and putdowns. I bought him 'Every Mans Battle' to read along time ago. He got to Chapter 4 and quit. Seems like he only wanted to read the 'fun stuff'.

I think this would be a VERY good book for me to own and read... perhaps it would help me when I "counsel" women who come to me from our congregation.

Oh these comments are heartbreaking. Maybe the winner could read it and then pass it on to the others? It sounds like a book all of us need to read!
I'm praying for all of you,ladies!

I really need to share this with someone. I don't think she would appreciate me sharing her story, but maybe she could benefit from reading this in private.
