Jesus came to pardon our sins. But He also came to heal the brokenhearted so we can walk in freedom.  

Freedom from pain, guilt, shame, sin, and condemnation. By His wounds we are healed. 

May God continue to bless us on the path to complete restoration and healing in Him.

You're Just Like Your Father!

Posted by Kristina Croft on Sunday, June 26, 2011,

“You’re just like your father! One minute you’re brilliant, controlled, steadfast. And the next you’re throwing it all away on some young piece of ass.”  This is a line from the movie Sweet Home Alabama, where the mother is arguing with her son about who he wants to marry.  As I was watching this movie recently, the Holy Spirit stirred in me. And I thought about how most men do become just like their fathers; the good, the bad, and the ugly. I remember sitting with my husband one ...

Year One

Posted by Kristina Croft on Saturday, June 25, 2011,

This past Tuesday, my husband and I celebrated his first year of sobriety.

I won’t pretend that this year has been easy. It hasn’t. I won’t even pretend that this year was fair. It wasn’t. But I will say this year, our 9th year, has been our best year. You’d think the opposite would be true… my husband confessed to being addicted to pornography, to lying, deceiving, and manipulating me and everyone we know to keep this secret, and to pursuing a relationship with another woman; we...

When his sin becomes your stumbling block…

Posted by Kristina Croft on Friday, June 17, 2011,


A lot of women find themselves stumbling into sin while their husband struggles with sexual immorality. The effects of a husband’s sexual sin and the repercussions that follow repentance can throw a wife into her own spiral of sin and shame. Typically, recovery resources focus on dealing with the pain of the betrayal but neglect to address the sin that can arise when a wife is in the midst of the pain. For me, iniquity began well before my husband had his crisis of truth. Feeling the effect...

The Myth about Accountability

Posted by Kristina Croft on Tuesday, June 7, 2011,

There’s a lie that has spread like wildfire through western Christian culture. A lie that breeds more lies. A lie that I believe is demonically orchestrated. It’s simple, it’s powerful, and it’s widely accepted and taught in our churches. The lie? A wife cannot be her husband’s accountability partner.

Where did this idea originate? Has it come from Scripture? Does this philosophy create oneness and unity between a husband and wife, or does it breed anxiety, doubts, and unconfessed si...

Hope for Sex after Betrayal?

Posted by Kristina Croft on Thursday, June 2, 2011,

After you discover your husband’s betrayal, depending on your circumstances and personality, you will betempted to react negatively to sex with your spouse in one of two ways:

1) Take over as his god. When men are trapped in sexual sin, sex becomes their god. They worship it. They give themselves over to it, sacrificing their time, money, energy, and even their family to their god. You may be tempted to jump in and take over, allowing him to idolize you. Trying to satisfy his every sexual ...
