In this episode, Andrew Ray talks with Julie Lowe and Winston Smith about the healing process after adultery. This discussion is in response to the listener question: “I am counseling a couple in an adultery situation where the wife is unable to overcome the feelings of pain, anger, and betrayal. She views her repentant husband as dirty and disgusting because of what he did. Though we have spent weeks talking about how our forgiveness, being based on God’s forgiveness of us, she continues to live by her feelings, not by God’s word. How can I help her overcome her feelings?”
