There is a group of women who often suffer in silence. We are women whose husbands are caught in the snare of pornography.
This is a place of help, of hope, of strength.
This blog is written with the assumption that you have chosen to fight for your husband, your marriage, and your family.
The things posted here will be in the form of encouragement and help to do just that.

I Have Promises to Keep

It's important to find a way to make promises that we can keep. Not promises of emotions or out of a need to demand some sort of control in our out-of-control lives.

Both of you need to make promises that can be kept. Don't ask him to make promises that he can't keep, but together, try to find ones he can keep. He cannot promise to never slip up again, so don't ask him to do that because it sets him up for failure and sets you up for disappointment. Find what you both can promise and keep your promises. These are not situational promises or negotiations. It cannot be "I promise to not get mad as long as....".  Keep your promises in good faith and with love.

What can he promise? Can he promise to be honest with you?

-Isaiah 43:2

Here is a story that I read once. I don't know where I found it, so I can't give proper credit, but I love it so:

Never, Never, Never Give Up

      We need to make this decision early on. Some of you have done things like this. You committed as a youth to remain chaste until marriage. You committed to keep clean of drugs and/or alcohol. This is a similar situation. If you give yourselves an out for later years, the chances are that you will take it. 

You Are Not Alone

We all feel it at times. We are alone in our pain. No one knows what our life is like.

Honestly, that is what each person's life is like. A cancer victim might find kindred spirits that also suffer from this horrible disease, but their pain is their own. Their journey is their own. There's a catchy quote that circulates around the internet which says something like, "Everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."
