“After an Affair is a tremendous help to anyone who has experienced infidelity in marriage. Michaels pastoral wisdom and counseling experience shine as he directs the reader to spiritual food that is often missed but is critical to surviving the wilderness of adultery. I will certainly be recommending and using this resource in my own ministry.”See All

“When were in a crisis, we need the hope of the gospel more than ever. But standard devotional guides dont seem to speak to the elevated emotions and despair we feel. This can make God feel far away when we need to feel him most near. That is why I am so grateful for Michael Gembolas devotional After an Affair. Gods Word is sturdy enough for the most desperate times. This devotional is written so that the person swirling in guilt, shame, and life- and family-altering decisions can know that God will meet them right where they areas painful and disorienting as that place may be.”See All

“Infidelity involves many factors leading up to betrayal. Deceit in behavior and in the heart are the two most obvious. Hidden sins require ruthless and consistent truth-telling as well as the risk of practicing new thinking and habits that will move people forward. Michael, in After an Affair, has helped us tremendously by outlining a thirty-one-day guide that invites us to do the deeper work necessary to target these hidden sins.”See All
