During the darkest days of my marriage, I read the book Love Warrior and a spark burst into flame inside me. In reading, in recognizing my own story inside someone else’s story, I found healing, the strength to pick myself up, roll up my sleeves, and commit to the hard labor it takes to recover from adultery.
I found my voice, and began to tell my story. It’s a story not told very often. It’s a taboo we feel too tongue-tied about. It’s time for that to change.
This page is a landing zone for all the parts and pieces of this story of unfaithfulness, unwieldy pain and unyielding love in my marriage. The posts you’ll read here are meant to help pull you up and out of loneliness, you are NOT the only one, and back in to love.
Sharing our stories is our best weapon against loneliness. Our best kickstart to courage. Our best chance. Our best. ~ Jodie Utter
