Tell us a little about yourself. I happily live in Rochester, MN, where my husband, Mike, and I are raising and homeschooling our three kidsKadi, Ben, and Caleb. When our kids were 4 months, 2 years, and 6 years old I thought it would be a great time for a new career as a speaker and author. When they were 6 years, 8 year, and 12 years, I couldnt imagine anything better than starting a Masters degree in ministry. Dont judge me, Im a bit of a mess, and when God asks me to do something I try to say yes even when it means writing about the painful issue of pornography. In the midst of our family pandemonium, I unapologetically drink deep gulps of the Word, refuel by the power of time spent with Jesus, count my blessings, and embrace the opportunities He gives me to teach, speak, and write with holy enthusiasm.
What was your motivation behind this project? In my ministry as a speaker for womens retreats and conferences, I share my testimony of having been married to a man who was addicted to pornography. As a result, I met many women whose husbands struggled with pornography as well. A good number of those women confided that though their husbands were doing all the right things (counseling, support groups, accountability, filters, etc.), the women were still struggling with their own heart issues, which resulted from the addiction. I feel strongly that Jesus is best equipped to tend to a broken heart, so my primary reason for writing When Your Husband is Addicted to Pornography: Healing Your Wounded Heart was to walk with women to the foot of the cross so that He could heal her heart regardless of her husbands daily choices about pornography.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I challenge women to examine the false conclusions she has come to because of her husbands addiction, in light of Gods truth. The top three things I hope readers will cling to when they finish reading and working through the book are: 1. She is not alone. Vignettes will resonate with her as she hears snippets of other womens stories. 2. This is not her fault. In the end, we are all responsible for ourselves and how we walk in obedience to Gods Wordor dont. She cant control her husbands choices. 3. Jesus can and will take the broken pieces of her heart and make something beautiful of it. Psalm 147:3 assures us that He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? This book was never meant to draw attention to me or to my ex-husband, it was meant to help a woman find healing for her heart in Christ. Snippets of my story are anonymously interspersed with those of 25 other women who have walked this path. When a woman discovers that her husband is struggling with pornography, the information becomes her secret to bear. This is not something women talk about. As a result, when one does want to share with someone, she doesn't know who else will understand all that she is feeling. Silence is healing's greatest enemy. I wanted my readers to know that they aren't alone and that their feelings are typical. While no two stories are exactly the same, the grieving and recovery processes are similar. When women read this book and think, How did Vicki know thats exactly how I feel? Its because you can only know what this feels like if youve experienced it yourself.
