Following the joy of rediscovering their original love over 7 years after divorce, Jeff and Cheryl take readers back through the devastation that began with dissatisfaction and led to an affair, estrangement, divorce, and shared custody of 2 young daughters. Over the intervening 7 years, Cheryl began the process of redemption, prayerfully seeking restoration and working through intense pain and confusion. In the end, Jeff and Cheryl came to find an even deeper love and spiritual bond. Their experience led them to form a counseling ministry to help couples hope again.
An attractive young couple, Jeff and Cheryl Scruggs seemed to have it all: professional success, adorable twin daughters, and a good marriage. But their picture-perfect image concealed a widening chasm between two people unable to connect on an intimate, soul-deep level.
Ten disappointing years of marriage. Seven painful years of divorce. One remarkable, true-life story of a love rescued by God.
After years of frustration, Cheryl’s longing for emotional fulfillment led to an affair and, finally, a divorce that left Jeff utterly devastated and seething with anger. Yet, incredibly, seven years later, Jeff and Cheryl once again stood at the altar, promising to “love, honor, and cherish” one another. A new and vibrant love had risen out of the ashes of this family’s pain.
I Do Again reveals the hidden secrets that slowly destroyed this marriage and the spiritual awakening that opened the way to healing. A riveting account of the power of prayer and redemption, this remarkable book offers renewed hope for even the most troubled marriages–and reveals why the rewards of restoration are well worth the wait.
