    We are slowly working through things within ourselves. Yesterday we had some great one on one time just talking through some things; boundaries, revelations of personal intentions during the dark times, etc. To put it plainly, my husband lived in a constant...

    Formerly ELK0115 Good afternoon LD family. I've taken a bit of a break from journaling online. I had kept up on the dares until this last weekend. My husband has turned his life back to God and our marriage. This has been a HUGE answered prayer but...

    Not sure where to start today's journal entry. When I spoke with a close relative that is a strong christian, whom my husband gave me permission to confide in, they told me that this emotional affair may just be the tip of the iceberg and to be prepared...

    Another long night. I stayed home from work last night as I felt a strong pull to stay home and be with my family. My husband is unconsolable. I have never seen him this way in the 25 years we've been together. Last night was a mess. It was revealed...

    This afternoon my husband text me a long message. He was too afraid to say it person or on the phone. He admitted that he "fell in love" with the OW. He is still choosing to stay in the marriage and try for restoration but his heart is broken...

    The last entry I mentioned my husband wanted to meet and talk about "us". He wanted to meet at a restaurant. I can only assume so I wouldn't make a scene. As much as everyone was telling me to believe the best, I spent most of yesterday...

    It took me 2 days to complete the dare for Day 22 Round 2. He kept avoiding being alone with me, went out two nights in a row and slept in our sons room that has an extra bed. So, last night I texted him after I went to bed. I simply wrote. "I wanted...

    I have had some health issues develop over the last couple of years and will get flare ups every few months. Well I'm having one now. It started yesterday and can last a few days. It's painful and extremely uncomfortable to the point that no position...

    Well the bulk of the move is complete. It was much more overwhelming than I expected with regard to how much stuff a family can accumulate after 17 years. We still have some things in the garage and will slowly get to that over the next few days in small...
  • Prayer Request-Moving Day

    Today is bittersweet. We are moving from our home of 17 yrs. We moved to our home when we were just 24-23 yrs old with two boys ages 5 and 2. 17 years brought with it two more boys and lots of home repair mishaps for an aging home. But it also brought...

    Hello LD family. It's been a very busy couple of weeks and I haven't posted a lot but I've been reading all of your posts. Not much has changed in my own situation. Christmas went ok. An unexpected bit of affection from my husband on Christmas...

    So after my breakdown yesterday I have decided to deactivate my FB account. That account is assuredly an idol in my life. Most peoples lives, really. But also, if it is going to be revealed to me that my husband is indeed in an affair regardless of whether...

    I am at a loss today. Things are getting worse. Maybe in my own eyes anyway. I am in Round 2 and today am supposed to do something out of kindness, when all I want to do is yell and scream. We had a meeting first thing this morning with all of our 15...

    So it is day 40. What a long journey it has already been. I can honestly say that I am surprised that I completed it. Praise God for that alone. Yesterday, I wrote "the letter" and gave it to my husband. He read it, then found me and simply...

    Today was just BAD! I got a phone call from my 15year olds school. He's been acting out, being disruptive and disrespectful. It's getting to the point that there will be a meeting next week to "discuss". One of his teachers that he connects...

    Since my last entry had a meeting with a Church Elder. The Elder happened to know my husband's family when he was a kid. So he knows my husband grew up with Christian values. He was saddened to hear of these recent events but it so very encouraged...

    Ok so the dare for today is seeking a mentor or counselor. I had just touched on this yesterday. The counselor I found through my employee assistance program is a marriage and family counselor but I'm not sure she is a Christian. She is aware that...

    So today's dare was to pray for insight on any wrongdoing and seek forgiveness, then admit that to and ask for forgiveness from my spouse. I had small pockets of opportunity to complete the dare but something weighed heavy in me that they weren't...
  • Trust vs. Truth

    I'm sure I know the answer to the question I'm going to post but I also need prayer about it from people I admire and trust. Yesterday was Thanksgiving for my husband's side of the family. His Dad and Stepmom hosted. My husband is one of five...

    So today was a hard one. Most of the day was uneventful. I slept a few hours in the morning as I worked last night. I woke up around noon and took our two boys to a wildlife sanctuary for a hike. It was a new thing for me. Something my husband complained...
