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.
Sandy and her husband, Earl have been married 56 years and offer both personal and professional expertise in dealing with issues of pornography and betrayal. The
Wilson’s co-direct Tuff Stuff Ministries.
Along with her husband Earl, and others, Sandy is a co-author of Restoring the Fallen: A Team Approach to Caring, Confronting & Reconciling.
COME TAKE A JOURNEY FROM HURT TO HOPE
Recovery from betrayal progresses through several stages; each of which presents different challenges. Sandy will share personal illustrations of her journey through the stages of:
Stage 1: Disclosure and the shock of finding out, waiting and agonizing about whether or not your spouse will fully acknowledge and deal with the issues.
Stage 2: Putting the marriage back together, or not!
Stage 3: Rebuilding a life together based on truth. (This stage usually begins four or five years after disclosure.)
In addition to an inspiring keynote message by Dr. Sandy Wilson, Restoring Hearts offers multiple breakout sessions led by gifted Christian ministry leaders, and Christian marriage and family therapists, and certified sex addiction therapists, that will provide information, tools, resources and an important message of hope for women in all stages of the healing journey.
