Next Monday, I will be reviewing Vicki Tiede’s new book, When Your Husband is Addicted to Pornography. I was honored to be a part of the blog tour for the kick off of this book. While there is thankfully more available for the men who are struggling with this sin, there hasn’t been much for the wives. The number of Christian women who silently suffer for their husband’s sin is staggering. And I have unfortunately seen wonderful women seek help and counsel from their church only to have the issue made light of. This is a terrible shame because both the husband and the wife need biblical counsel through such a serious sin.
Here is the marketing for the book:
After the Shock – Moving from Despair to Healing and Hope
When your husband’s addiction to pornography leaves you shattered, betrayed, and alone, where do you turn? Who do you turn to? Vicki Tiede, writing from personal experience, gently guides women toward God and away from despair. Through daily readings and questions on six important topics: hope, surrender, trust, identity, brokenness, and forgiveness, you will grow in healing and hope. Allowing God to meet your greatest needs is a long and learned process, but he promises to help you every step of the way. Questions and daily readings are suitable for both individuals and small groups.
If your marriage has not been affected by this sin, I’m sure that you know plenty that have. That’s why I was excited to read this book. How can you help counsel someone who is suffering from sexual sin in their marriage? Particularly, what is the wife going through, and how can you help encourage her in the gospel?
Along with reviewing When Your Husband is Addicted to Pornography next week, I will also be giving away two books, and interviewing the author. I want to make sure that I am asking questions that my readers may have, so what better way than getting you involved? You have two days to submit your questions for Vicki Tiede. Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will select five for the interview. Given the nature of the topic, I will not be sharing the names of those who submitted the questions I use.
I know I had a lot of questions when I read the title, so I’m sure my thinking readers do as well. Ask away!
