A few days after an ordinary Valentine’s Day, Cindy Beall’s life changed forever. She listened with disbelief to her husband, Chris, a respected pastor, confess to pornography addiction, numerous affairs, and the startling news that a woman was pregnant with his child.

With raw honesty and intimate knowledge of pain and of God’s power to resurrect something new out of the debris of betrayal, Cindy reveals how to:

  • seek guidance, counseling, and prayer support when deceptions surface
  • help the family heal from the grief and humiliation
  • rebuild trust after porn, sex, and other addictions undermine a relationship
  • protect a marriage from lies and unfaithfulness
  • rely on God to pursue forgiveness and move forward in new promises

Cindy’s compassion, grasp of God’s Word, and the Bealls’ remarkable story will help wives and husbands trust God with their broken hearts and follow His leading, hope, and redemption.

Foreword by Craig Groeschel, bestselling author and senior pastor of LifeChurch.tv.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is a supernatural story of God's redemption and restoration, where a man chose humility and his wife believed God for the impossible. And it happened. Healing Your Marriage When Trust Is Broken will give you hope for your marriage and strengthen your faith in a God who can turn our mistakes into miracles."
--Steven Furtick, lead pastor of Elevation Church and author of Sun Stand Still

"What you are about to read is an all too real story of a couple in ministry whose marriage and vocation is suddenly rocked and halted by the consequences of infidelity. Chillingly honest but remarkably encouraging, Cindy's journey is one that breaks through the barriers of shock, pain, and betrayal to forgiveness, strength and restoration. I look forward to sharing this book with so many I know who are dealing with the unfortunate devastation of a marital affair."
--Pete Wilson, pastor of Cross Point Community Church and author of Plan B

"One of the greatest gifts we can give to each other is the gift of knowing that you are not alone. Through Cindy's transparency and openness, she willingly gives this gift to all of her readers. Need encouragement? Need hope? Need to know you aren't alone? Then please read Healing Your Marriage When Trust Is Broken."
--Jud and Lori Wilhite, senior pastor of Central Christian Church, author of Throw It Down and founder of leadingandlovingit.com

"Chris and Cindy's story is an inspirational and captivating account of humility, forgiveness, and redemption. Through the pain of betrayal, their story reflects the love of God that penetrates darkness to illuminate a new hope for marriages in crisis."
--Chris Hodges, senior pastor of Church of the Highlands

"With elegance, vulnerability and grit, Cindy Beall shares what is every married woman's greatest nightmare. A powerful story of hope...an honest journey of struggle...an inspiring passage of renewal: the chronicle of Cindy's major life interruption speaks to the deepest place in my heart. This book is more than just a book on marital infidelity. It is a picture of the restorative love of Jesus, able to supersede any difficulty...compelling enough to make ugly things become beautiful. I love Chris and Cindy Beall's story. It is the story of Jesus."
--Lisa Whittle, speaker and author of {w}hole

"This is a refreshing story of forgiveness, grace, and a pure desire to defeat the odds by saving a marriage that was on the verge of ending. My hope is that if you are walking down the path of divorce, that this book inspires you not to give up, but to give your marriage to God and watch Him work a miracle."
--Dino Rizzo, lead pastor of Healing Place Church

"Cindy Beall's message of grace is simple but profound: Jesus is your hope for a successful marriage. No matter where you find yourself, her story will challenge and inspire you to let God heal the past and build a better future."
--Judah Smith, lead pastor of The City Church in Seattle, WA

"I randomly got 'placed' with the Bealls for an evening a few years back which turned out to be a ministry shifting moment in my life. I was captivated that evening as the authenticity flowed from Cindy's story on hurt, hope, and the resurrection of an undying love. This book took me back to that night and hearing that story. Cindy's words will rip the veil off any fear and doubt that God can heal you in spite of your own best effort."
--Carlos Whittaker, worship leader

"For the skeptic who believes miracles no longer exist and for the one in the thick of the pain that thinks God has left, I ask you to read this book. What happened in Chris and Cindy's life and the healing that came to their marriage cannot be anything short of a miracle. Low odds, indescribable pain, and bleak circumstances was all God needed to do what He does best, the impossible. If you need hope that God still does the impossible, then this is your book."
--Natalie Witcher, Bible teacher and author of The Devil in Your Garden

"So honest...So real...So transparent...So timely. Being in leadership, I've seen the devastation of a husband and wife who didn't know how to put the pieces back together again. Cindy does such an excellent job of using word pictures to describe her journey of healing and restoration. This book will help couples rebuild trust in a broken marriage."
--Sheila Gerald, pastor of Champions Centre, Tacoma, Washington

    Amazing honesty, a must read for couples whose marriage is struggling

    Cindy speaks with such honesty and transparency. She brings Biblical truth to a very difficult subject and offers hope to many, many who are in situations that may seem hopeless. God has given her insights and wisdom that have guided her and her family to reclaim a marriage that many would have said was beyond hope. May God bless her for sharing her story.
