Publisher's Description

On November 2, 2006, Gayle Haggard’s life changed forever. That was the day that her husband, Ted Haggard, founder of the 14,000-member New Life Church in Colorado Springs and the President of the NAE, confessed to her the truth. In Why I Stayed, Gayle walks us through the choices she made in her darkest hours. On the day and in the months ahead, everything in her life was at stake—what she believed, the husband she thought she knew, and the church community she had worked tirelessly to establish with her husband and friends in the basement of their home more than two decades ago. Out of this crucible in her life, Gayle has discovered a newfound passion for the central message of the Bible—the liberating message of forgiveness and love. Why I Stayed is a must-read. It paints a picture of what less-than-perfect people, across this nation and all over the world, desperately need—a community of family and faith that offers healing love and a path to restoration.

    Forgiveness is not the issue for any sin. Gayle's decision to forgive is commendable and biblical. However, her decision to stay in this marriage, based on reasons she gave is wrong. Furthermore, her "testimonial" sends the wrong message to other women regarding God's design of marriage. Not at all what I was expecting and incredibly disappointing.

    For several years, there were many who attended New Life Church that wondered what really happened with Ted and Gayle and why the sudden departure. No matter the implications, what the overseers told us, or the media splashed... it just didn't make since if you really knew the Haggards. This book finally clears up so many questions. Read and grow in God :-)

    I felt she taught me along with millions who have read her book about forgiveness. Not how man forgiveness; How God's forgives and loves us. Tell me who has not sinned? For that person that hasn't sinned, then throw that first rock? Not at someone else, but at yourself, for we ALL have sinned. It's only by the grace of God that we will be saved IF we accepted Jesus into our lives. Mock all you want, but when you have that last breath do not call on Him to save you, if you can not see yourself as a sinner & needing to ask for forgiveness first and repent! If you can't, then you will know God's emptiness in Hell! Ted & Gayle may God continue to show the both of you how much He loves you and how much others have opened their hearts & eyes by your truth!

    This is a very honest book!! I am still reading it and as I read, I am thinking of all the people that I want to read this book!! As Drs. Les & Leslie Parrott write inside the front of the book, "You'll be hard-pressed to find a more vulnerable account of a marriage that's faced a dark night of the soul than this one. Gayle Haggard's courageous `risk of love` reveals a healing path that few would have ever predicted. Her authenticity is disarming. Her faith is inspiring. And her story will take you deeper into God's healing grace. You won't be able to put this book down." How true!!

    This book is one of the BEST I have found on FORGIVENESS. After all, Gayle went thru w/ her husband & with the LORD's guidance/help, she was still able to forgive him. If she can forgive hm after all they went thru--Together--anyone can follow her steps w/ the LORD to forgive another. Anyone struggling w/ forgiveness should, definitely, read this book!!!
