Hope, Help, and Healing for Women in all Stages of the Healing Journey
Dealing with a spouse's struggle with sexual integrity, or another person they are in a close relationship with, is one of the most challenging experiences a woman will face. Quite often, women feel they are alone and that everyone, including God, has abandoned them.
Restoring Hearts is a unique one-day conference for women who are facing the startling discovery of their husband's sexual unfaithfulness - from pornography use to extramarital affairs - as well as for women who have been dealing with this issue long-term. Sometimes, it is not the one they are married to, but a person they are in a relationship with - a fiancé, son, or father. Restoring Hearts provides a safe place where women can connect with other women who understand the challenges they face.
Patti Snodgrass, after twenty years of successful and fulfilling ministry, thought that ony a bright and rewarding future was ahead for she and her husband, Rick. In 2002, all that changed when Rick confessed his unfaithfulness. What seemed to be a bright and rewarding future was now dark and intimidating. With Rick's repentance and God's forgiveness, foiled was the enemy's plan to steal, kill and destroy their marriage - their lives! God, the ultimate restorer, had greater plans - plans that would bring honor and glory to Him and to His purposes.
Patti and Rick did the difficult recovery work of discovering the wounds that led to their broken relationship, and with the help of God and Christ the King Community Church, where Rick is now the pastor, their marriage and ministry are fully restored.
Patti is author of Surviving Your Worst Nightmare: A Guide for the Betrayed and she uses her life experiences to coach others through the aftermath of infidelity. Rick and Patti meet with couples and assist them with their healing journeys. They are the parents of three grown sons and one wonder-filled grandson.
