Wonderful! Jul 11, 2008
I have to say that this is such a terrible thing for anyone to go through, wife, children, parents, etc.. This book was a real eyeopener to me. The church just has no idea how to help families that are suffering with this type of affliction. It is so much easier to ignore them than to help them. The wives feel shunned by the church, or worse yet, laughed at behind their back. I know, I was one. Church, open your arms to these families. The wives love their husbands, they just don't know what to do or where to get help. This book was really helpful because it was from a personal experience, you know, someone that has been there, done that.
