An affair sent my family into overdrive when I was ten years old. Don't get me wrong, things had been rocky prior to the revelation of my father having an affair with his secretary, but that's when things really shattered. This led to my parents divorcing, my mother turning into an angry/bitter/mean version of herself, my father eventually going to jail, and my mom having to work two jobs to support my sister and me. I spent more time below the poverty line than I did above it. I spent more time being angry than happy. I was a wreck but thankfully God was with me through it all. He strategically placed people in my path who loved me. This made all of the difference in the world. Healing occurred. My faith strengthened. I learned no matter what, I would always have God.
My story is no different than thousands of others. In my small town, it was more of a rarity to meet another student with married parents...married to their first spouse.
Tomorrow night (Thursday, September 17), my pastor gets to debate AGAINST adultery. Nightline will be at Fellowship Church filming a debate on if adultery is wrong. Ashley Madison is a social networking site that helps people discretely have affairs. The CEO of Ashley Madison will try to convince the viewers of Nightline (and those in attendance for the debate) that adultery is a good thing.
If you're in DFW, I invite you to come & watch the debate. It starts at 6:30 pm (I'd try to arrive by 6:15 at the latest). We will have children's services for birth through fifth grade. Trust me we'll have a fantastic evening planned for the children.
