“This book taught me how to respond to my husband’s addiction in a way that has provided true healing. I found peace in these pages.”
~ Stephanie H.
“This unique book not only provides a powerful and authentic narrative about the gut-wrenching realities surrounding a spouse’s pornography and sexual addiction, but it also illuminates a pathway to healing for anyone feeling shame, isolation, fear, or indescribable pain as they deal with this or similar issues. Rhyll dares to do what most people won’t; she leans into her vulnerabilities, has faith to see light in dark places, and musters courage to share all of it so that others may have hope.”
~Jill C. Manning, Ph.D., LMFT; Author of What’s the Big Deal About Pornography and Let’s Talk About the Elephant in the Room.
“Rhyll’s story is an unflinching and honest window into the pain that sexual addiction can cause. It represents three stories of learning and redemption as it explores Rhyll’s journey from anguish to understanding, Steven’s path from addiction to recovery, and their continued relational healing as a couple. The courage displayed by this remarkable couple should provide genuine hope to many as they discover that their own path to peace is reachable.”
~Donald L. Hilton Jr., MD. Author of He Restoreth My Soul.

We recommend this book to educate you on the science behind pornography and sexual addiction.
From the book:
“Most, if not all, families will be affected by pornography. If you are a man, you must first safeguard yourself. If you are secretly involved, hopefully this work will convince you there will never be peace for you until you are healed. If you are free from addiction now, you must still guard yourself against future addiction, as all are vulnerable who are not “sober and vigilant,” as Peter warned.If you are a father, it is essential to understand what your sons will be exposed to and that he will be at serious risk for addiction at some point in his life. If you are a woman please understand that this problem is real and must be confronted head on. You also need to be aware of the profound risk your sons face.”
