After going through therapy to save their marriage from a devastating infidelity, Gary and Mona Shriver cofounded Hope and Healing Ministries, Inc.,, an adultery recovery peer support ministry, when they found no other couple who could offer them tangible hope that they could heal. They are members of the Association of Marriage and Family Ministries (AMFM) and participate in their focus group for Reconciling Troubled Marriages. The Shrivers are also members of the Stanislaus County Healthy Marriage Coalition in California. They have shared their story of hope many times on The 700 Club, Focus on the Family, and RBCs Words to Live By. Gary, who owns an audio and video production facility, and Mona, a former nurse active in womens ministries, have been married thirty-three years and have three grown sons. They reside in Turlock, California.
From the Publisher▼▲
Fifteen years ago, Gary and Mona Shriver experienced the devastation caused by adultery. After saving their relationship, the Shrivers wrote Unfaithful (David C Cook, November 2009), the true story of how God restored their unraveling marriage. Raw and transparently honest, the Shrivers story alone is an inspiration, offering hope and practical strategies for healing. In this revised version, the authors add new information on emotional affairs and share real life stories of betrayal and complete healing.
As co-founders of Hope and Healing Ministries, a Christian peer support ministry for couples in adultery recovery, the Shrivers have seen countless broken marriages restored and transformed into intimate relationships built on love, respect, and trust. Unfaithful is a lifeline for couples with no hope in sight. It is also a useful resource for ministers, counselors, as well as friends and family of couples struggling to recover after a spouse has strayed.
With updated content and new discussion questions, Unfaithful is an ideal resource for small group studies or support groups. This revised version also offers a recovery timeline from a couples perspective, a helpful addition for couples wondering what the healing process will look like.
We can now say with absolute sincerity that we have fully healed from the adultery, the Shrivers share. Our marriage is strong and mutually satisfying. We have love and trust. And we can only encourage you with the fact that it is worth the journey.
Gramps5 Stars Out Of 5Unfaithful: Hope and Healing After Infidelity- eBookJuly 18, 2016GrampsQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0The most insightful book i have read in all my 63 years on this earth. Many more aspects could be linked to Scripture references i am sure and for those of the body who take the bible literally would be a great help. Adultery is as Idolatry, self does not agree to look in that mirror

Incredibly usefulWasilla, AKAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This book got us on the road to healingNovember 4, 2013Incredibly usefulWasilla, AKAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book had a transforming effect on my husband and me. A major crisis hit us when years of infidelity was confessed...we didn't know where to turn. I (wife) began reading this book and it made me realize that I wasn't alone...and that I could and should be honest about what I needed to know. My husband began to read it, begrudgingly, and realized he needed to come completely clean. Gary and Mona Shriver shared their experience in such a way that it ministered to exactly the parts of each of us (my husband and me) that needed to be ministered to. God has an incredible of way of meeting us where we need to be met. And He did that for us through this book!
Along with Debra Laaser's book, Shattered Vows, this book gave my husband and me the perspective and hope we needed to realize that we could not only recover from adultery, but our marriage could be healed by the Almighty and made beautiful from the ashes. We were put on the right path, the right considerations planted in our hearts and minds, because Gary and Mona had the courage to write a book about the hope and healing God brings when we submit to Him and do things His way.
There is also a lot of practical information in this book, from the struggle itself to the boundaries that we need to think about when we finally make the commitment to see our marriages through as God would have us do. I would (and have) recommend(ed) this book to anyone who is going through adultery recovery--or even considering taking that difficult but rewarding route.
One note: Gary and Mona's story is about a "limited" amount of adultery (if there is such a thing). Debra Laaser's book is geared more for those who have been dealing with sexual addiction or adulterous behavior that is more than just a once or twice scenario, which is what my husband's and my experience was.
