Recovery Workbook: Couples
$1.00 On Sale
We realize that couples who pick up this book will be at different places in their journey of recovery from sexual addiction. Perhaps you have worked through the L.I.F.E. Guide for Men (or Women) and/or the L.I.F.E. Guide for Spouses. Or maybe you have begun this journey believing that if you can heal the marriage that the problems will be solved. It could be that one of you is willing to work on the marriage, and the other isn't quite sure. This is why we encourage people to go through the grieving process and do individual work before making a decision on the marriage. Years of experience have shown that couples do much better with intimacy development after completing their individual work first. If you start this book and discover that the exercises are overwhelming, you may need to consider doing more individual work before you continue. The individual L.I.F.E. Guides or a professional counselor may be helpful at this point. (The reference section in the back can provide resources). If you have just gone through a disclosure/discovery process, this book will probably not be appropriate for you as you begin the journey. For the spouse in that situation, the grieving exercises in the L.I.F.E. Guide for Spouses would be a great place to start. L.I.F.E. Ministries International cares deeply about you and your family. This is why they are committed to providing the best possible resources to assist you in your journey. This book can be used in a variety of settings. It may be that you work through it with a mentor couple, in a group, or in the privacy of your home. At some point, you will find it healing to share your story with other couples. Perhaps there is a couple in your church or support group that has a strong marriage. You might want to work through the exercises with them. Do what you can. It may be helpful to go back and repeat the exercises at different points in your journey.
