About The Book
This is an 8-week devotional that walks you through the betrayal trauma, the grief, and the anger of discovering your husband’s unfaithfulness — either digitally or physically. In this study, Brianna Edwards walks through her own story of betrayal trauma as you journey through yours and helps you to see Jesus in the midst of your pain. Brianna journeyed through pain and anger and saw Jesus in those dark spaces. In this study, she helps you to see Jesus in the midst of your own dark moments and find light in your dark night. Each day is interactive, filled with stories, reflection, processing, and Scripture. There is no easy answer or fix when it comes to real hurt, but we can journey toward something better together.

His struggles become ours, don’t they? We love the man in our life so much—and yet our heart may be deeply bruised or broken; collateral damage in his battle with sexual temptation. Or we watch our husband tearfully wrestling to overcome a visual pattern that began in middle school, and we feel compassion even as we feel confused about why the struggle even exists. Or maybe we deal with intense anger or betrayal after uncovering an addiction he had hidden for years.

Introduction from the author snippet: This study is long overdue. I sit across from countless women who have been hurt by the revelation that their husband, fiancé, or boyfriend is trapped in sexual sin. I have watched the tears fall as they explain the pain and frustration they are experiencing. Every woman’s story is unique, but the feelings are so often the same. It’s natural to question love, to feel the insecurity, to doubt, and to be angry.
This study was birthed from the angst of the stories I’ve heard; stories like yours, stories like mine. On a cold Sunday morning, my husband admitted to having a decade long struggle with pornography. My world was shattered, and I didn’t know where to turn. If I confided in a friend, I felt that I would be throwing my husband “under the bus.” I certainly couldn’t tell my parents. Where could I go to seek relief for my aching heart? Betrayal trauma is real and this devotional can help!
