Healing Your Marriage When Trust is Broken Book Cover

Forgiving the Unforgivable Book Cover

One of the more unique books that I (Rusty) read, but an amazing story of grace in the midst of the worst of circumstances.


Torn Asunder Book Cover

"Torn Asunder" - Dave Carder

The day after the confession, we sat in a counselor's office and he told us to immediately find and read this book. While the books above tell stories of infidelity that we were able to relate to, Carder's book is the most practical book we found, with lots of Biblical advice and counseling. If you are facing the challenge of recovering from unfaithfulness in your marriage, this book is a must read.
