I have posted numerous items on this blog regarding mid-life crisis. There are many hits every day by women looking for answers as their husbands struggle through this. Consistently, each day, there are numerous women who google terms like “adultery,” “Christian husband having an affair,” “Christian men and pornography,” “flirting husband,” and the like. Today I came across an excellent resource for you, if typing this sort of thing into your search engine has brought you here.
Faith Taylor is the wife of Dean Taylor, pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Simpsonville, South Carolina. I was Faith’s successor as Director of Girl’s Extension Ministries at Bob Jones University (Faith and Dean are both grads). In this challenge, given at a family conference at their church, Faith addresses the natural and supernatural responses a Christian wife can have when (note, I do not say “if”) her husband is tempted in the area of sexual sin. I highly recommend it. Faith was able to condense into a mere 57 minutes a great deal of helpful insight and information. She is very candid, of necessity. At the conclusion, she also offers some helpful resources.
