Desperate House Lies: It Could Happen to You (Paperback)
Affair-Proof Your Marriage
Think it couldn’t happen to you? Most women never make a conscious choice to have an affair, yet it happens to even the most active Christians. How? Why? This book takes a look at the series of seemingly harmless choices that can lead you straight down that dangerous, dead-end path. Desperate House Lies exposes eight common myths, including: he’s just my friend so it’s harmless, and my husband doesn’t understand me; I deserve someone better. Personal stories of women who have slipped in their own marriages and want to help you avoid the same devastation, combined with practical, realistic guidance, will equip you to protect your God-ordained union now and for all time.
“We highly recommend that every woman read Desperate House Lies. This book could be a breakthrough for your marriage. We have never read a better book on the topic; we couldn’t put it down!”
-Dr. Gary and Barbara Rosberg
“This book is a must-read for anyone hearing a deceptive whisper, ‘It’s okay to cross the line.’”
