When Stephanie Broersma’s husband admitted to a ten-year addiction to pornography and multiple extramarital affairs, she had a decision to make. Crushed, humiliated, hurt, and angry, she could have kicked him to the curb faster than he could say he was sorry. But something inside her wouldn’t let go of the man she loved. Something inside whispered peace and forgiveness and convinced her to give their marriage another chance. That something was the voice of the Holy Spirit, who provided the strength and courage Stephanie would need for the long days ahead.
In Reclaimed: Finding Your Identity after Marital Betrayal, Stephanie shares a raw and honest look at the emotions, decisions, and difficulties she faced after she learned of her husband’s infidelity. But the book goes beyond just her story. With the goal of helping other women in similar situations, Stephanie has created a unique resource in which she shares advice, stories from other women, leading questions to help readers journal their feelings, and an encouraging compilation of Scripture verses to give strength to the weary.
Stephanie says, “My prayer is that you will see in this thirty-day personal journal the same divine web that held me up when my two feet were too weak to stand and that you will find the same hope I experienced through the cross of Christ.”
Recovery from a betrayal of such magnitude is not easy. It is easy, however, to get lost in the pain and anger that overwhelm you, to lose yourself in the staggering changes you face. But reclaiming who you were–and reconciling that with who you will be—is possible. Let Stephanie’s story encourage you to put your hand in the hand of the One who truly loves you and let Him lift you out of your pit.
