Publishers Description Confessions of an Adulterous Christian Woman offers a rare and honest look at the destructive descent into adultery and reveals the redeeming power of God's grace and His ability to restore a ruined life. Author Lyndell Hetrick Holtz was a pastor's wife, Bible study leader, and retreat speaker who never believed she would commit adultery. She thought her involvement with ministry gave her extra protection from the temptation to have an affair. But, in her forties, her life began to crumble, and suddenly adultery seemed to be the solution for an unhappy life and marriage. With emotion and conviction, Lyndell reflects on the disillusionment and faulty beliefs that led to destructive decisions. She tells of the heartache and pain she experienced when her affair was discovered and the resulting consequences, including the loss of her 25 year marriage, her beautiful home, her witness in the community, her friends, and the respect of her four adult children. It seemed as if her life was over and her relationship with Christ forever ruined.But it was here, broken and sprawled in the dust of shame and defeat, where Lyndell encountered love unlike any she had ever known. With worship and humility, she shares how God lovingly embraced her shattered life and began to redeem, restore, and rebuild it in miraculous ways.Confessions of an Adulterous Christian Woman gives women a first-hand look at the destruction of adultery and provides the awareness needed to avoid assuming that Christian women are immune to adultery's snare. This powerful story examines the devastating effects of adultery, but more importantly, reveals a God who continues to write His story of redemption, restoration, and reconciliation on the broken lives of humanity, taking us, from utter despair to undying devotion to Him and the unconditional, healing love He gives.

Confessions of Adulterous Christian Woman May 3, 2010
This was the book that exposed that my wife was committing adultery and I would suggest this to any man who has those thoughts in your spirit. It was honest and realistic and very spiritual, she is an awesome author who cares for the readers and has actually prayed for me and my wife. I have never read a book like this and nor have I ever met an author who really cares about her readers as she does.
Please read this book women and be set free from this sin, men read it so you can help your wife out of this darkness. Adultery hurts everyone involved, so get your help today by purchasing this book.
You must read this..before or after your affair! Dec 24, 2008
I will not turn this into a confessional but I am a Christian woman who turned to an adulterous affair for all the reasons (lies) she did and man did I think it was "God's Will" since He would want me to be happy of course. Well if you are in a marriage that has turned BLAH and you have found yourself "looking" in other directions. Or you think you are not capable of such a sin..read this. I would have NEVER thought I could have become an adulterous Christian woman. But we are all sinners..yep even you and a sin is a sin is a sin in God's eyes...this book talks about the slippery path of lies (even though they so feel like truths at the time) and how you begin to live a double life and the destruction you create due to the selfish desires you gave into...and that is where I am right now..in the fall out zone of the atomic bomb I set off...you have no idea how far reaching the damage is..especially if you have children. READ IT..even if doesn't apply to you in anyway..you may need the insiders look to help a sister or brother in need when they come to you with this information. I passed it on to my counselor..everyone should read it!

We know it's wrong, but it feels so right. God gives us built in radar to know the difference between right and wrong and if we choose what feels right, we will not suffer the consequences of choosing what we know is wrong. We tend to repeat history in our relationships. God does not want us to go by "feeling" because those feelings go away and what are we left with. Read this incredible book that says it better then anyone has said it before. Lyndell is a passionate woman, full of life and giving and she will capture your heart and your breath with her story. Lyndell said that she did not want to write this book but God told her she cannot keep what she has learned all to herself. Learn from her experience that you might avoid the pitfall before you. You will not be disappointed.
Marvelous Oct 1, 2008
After the Bible, this is one of the most remarkable books I've read. I highly recommend it to married people, divorced and separated people and those contemplating divorce. I truly think this short book can have a profound and life-changing impact on many, many readers.
