While they have enjoyed many successes in their marriage, it has not been a fairy tale story. Rather one with highs and lows. One of the most devastating times was when Tim disclosed that he had been unfaithful in their marriage. Any betrayal in a marriage is devastating. It’s even more devastating when the unfaith, like Tim, isn’t sure they want to continue in the marriage. Tim and Diana openly share their journey, hoping that their story will encourage others who have or are experiencing the difficult journey of healing from infidelity. They are the light of hope for others. If your marriage has been rocked by infidelity, there is hope that you can heal as a couple; even though you have felt alone in your marriage, there is hope that you can rebuild together; and if you are now alone, there is hope that you can continue on and heal.
In their journey, Tim and Diana took many steps that were good, but they also took steps that were detrimental and destructive to the healing process. They learned, grew, and began to rely on each other, but most importantly they began to rely on the Lord. They sought out marriage counseling, marriage coaching; pastoral care, and seminars to help them on their journey. It was through this process that they recommitted to each other to have a successful marriage, a marriage of joy, peace, happiness, fulfillment and purpose. While on this healing journey, they found the most impactful step for them was the surrendering of their fears and their burdens to the Lord.
