Description
On November 2, 2006, Gayle Haggard's life changed forever when her husband, Ted Haggard, founder of the 14,000-member New Life Church in Colorado Springs and president of the National Association of Evangelicals, was publicly exposed in a scandal. In the days and months ahead, everything in Gayle's life was at stake--her beliefs, her marriage, and her relationship with the church community she had been a part of for more than 20 years. In "Why I Stayed," Gayle walks us through the choices she made in her darkest hour and shares her renewed passion for the central message of the Bible--the liberating message of forgiveness and love. "Why I Stayed" reminds us of what less-than-perfect people desperately need--a community of family and faith that offers healing love and a path to restoration.

Gayle Haggard was living the life of her dreams. She was married to the senior pastor of a thriving megachurch, a mother of five, and a faith leader in her own right. But it all came crashing down when she — along with the rest of the nation — learned her husband was involved in a years-long sexual relationship with another man. Host Michel Martin speaks with Gayle Haggard, author of the book Why I Stayed, about her marriage, her husband's fall from grace and his sexuality. More at NPR.org
