Behind every husband enslaved to sexual sin is a woman reaping the horrible side effects of his self-centered lifestyle. When His Secret Sin Breaks Your Heart is more than an emotional look at a painful subject—a wife’s devastating discovery that her husband has a secret obsession with pornography and/or other women. Kathy Gallagher has been there; she understands the pain of rejection, the feelings of hopelessness and the questions that plague a hurting wife. In this collection of letters, she imparts heart-felt encouragement by providing practical and biblical answers based on real-life testimony. She not only sympathizes with the emotional turmoil wives experience, but more importantly, she directs them to their only true source of hope: Jesus. Included is a 30-day journal offering wives a place to prayerfully reflect upon Kathy’s letters.

As a wife of a porn addict, I didn’t know that so many things were tied together. I thought his porn addiction was just one aspect of his life, I didn’t know that being financially controlling, emotionally distant and cold, not having intimacy in or out of the bedroom, not socializing—it was all related! This book helped me to go from feeling isolated and alone to realizing I’m not the only woman who is in this exact same spot! And best of all, there is help and there is hope! And Kathy Gallagher helps you to stay focused on the almighty healer through it all. I highly recommend this book to anyone hurting and searching for answers.
In 1986, Kathy Gallagher and her husband, Steve, founded Pure Life Ministries, a ministry for men struggling with habitual sexual sin. Kathy has spent countless hours ministering to the hurting wives of these men, pointing them to Jesus and giving them hope through the very answers that worked for her. As a result of Kathy’s ministry, each year hundreds of wives receive counseling through Pure Life’s Overcomers at Home Program. She and Steve live in rural Kentucky where she serves as CFO of Pure Life Ministries.
