Listen now:

Welcome to another episode of Hope For Wives. Today, we are continuing our conversation around the church’s response to betrayal trauma, sex addiction, and sexual issues in marriage. Last episode we shared stories of churches that have responded well and churches that responded poorly. We finish this topic by brainstorming solutions for the leadership of churches to consider in this vulnerable and tender area of sex and betrayal.

We Will be Discussing:

  1. What would you tell Pastor’s about the consequence problematic porn viewing has on the husband?
  2. What would you tell Pastor’s about couple’s who come to them with sexual issues in their marriage?
  3. What hope can we leave?

Resources mentioned in this show:

  • APSATS (association of partners of sex addicts trauma specialists) have a special training for religious leaders, BTRL (Betrayal Trauma Religious Leader). Find out more about it here.

  • For Christian Wives podcast – a tasteful round table discussion about sexual experience and sexuality. Disclaimer: the audience is intended to be the general population of Christian wives (not necessarily betrayed partners), trauma informed.
